SC192T water heater bypass

First time I have had to de-winterize the trailer. Anyone know off hand where the bypass valve would be in the 2014 Surveyor SC192T (if it has one)? I cleared all the pink stuff from the lines and when I ran the hot water taps, the water spurted and spat until it ran smooth, but no water went to the water heating tank. Couldn't find an exact location in the manual. I haven't had a chance to go back out and start looking around. But thought I would check if anyone knew if it was behind a wall that you need to take the screws out to get at, or out in the open.

Thanks, James.

I'm not familiar with your trailer but, most often, there should be three bypass valves (line out of the heater, line into the heater, and a connecting line) that are located immediately behind the heater.

Occasionally, you will find set ups with just one or two valves or the valves are somewhere else (e.g., kitchen sink area), but I would fist look behind your WH.

Here are a couple of examples...

Thanks so much. I will take a look by the sinks and also take the screws out of the bench that is over top of the heater and check there if I can't find it.

I will update the thread in case another SC192T owner is looking at well at some point.

James.

all you need to do is start at the outside vent door hatch to the water heater. look inside and determine approx. where the access door/panel might be inside the trailer.
most of the time, it's a false door/panel that is screwed in.
many of us put hinges on it to make it a real cabinet door and easily accessible.

Found it! It was under the bench seat for the dinning table.
Having a heck of a time to get the anode rod to screw in all the way. Looks like where it screws in has rusted a fair bit. I will try something a bit abrasive to see if I can loosen it all up.
There were 3 valves so I just turned them opposite of what they were.

Thanks for the help, and I think I will try some hinges on the panel.
