The bypass valve is between the cold and hot intake/outlet plumbing on the water heater itself. Do a search, there are lots of pics posted about it. As for the cabinet problem, many have replaced the screws with longer ones. We traveled 3500 miles this summer and had no problems with any cabinet doors.

That's what it was, they had the bypass open between the cold and hot, but why. Had to unscrew panels to see so it was built that way?

I have had to replace hinge screws and did it with the course thread 7/8" drywall screws that I already have. Just don't over tighten them... don't use a drill / driver. Have never had a door or hinge come completely off. But, the microwave nearly fell out of the cabinet... they didn't have it sitting on the floor of the cabinet... only screws through the face of the unit was holding it. First leg of the first trip revealed this.

Turn propane on and use the switch in the bathroom.. Your water heater will run off of gas and not shore power.. ( turn the on / off switch on the heater itself to off )... Propane re heats faster and only runs when you flip the switch..

We turn the switch on and the water is ready to go time we get our clothes and towels ready to shower..

Just my opinion..
