dewinterizing Avenger 28BHS

hello All,

we just purchased a 2014 Avenger in Late December and I am getting ready to dewinterize it here in VA for a trip ti Florida next month. Its our first trip and our first RV so we want to do our shakedown trip and dewinterize it. I found the valves behind the panel in the storage compartment but there are three valves. Can anyone explain which ones I need to open and it what sequence? Ive been watching some youtube videos and did some reading and it seems I have to fill with some fresh water, open faucets to drain antifreeze, then once clean, I have to put drain plug back in hot water heater because it is currently out and I believe bypassed. Just npt sure what to do with the three valves. I can take pictures if need be or if anyone else has same model, I would appreciate help. I can always call dealer too but figured I would start here. thanks all!

first, run water through all faucets, hot and cold to rinse out antifreeze. Now put the plug in water heater so it fills when you put water too it. Then you can un-bypass the water heater. You will open the inlet and outlet valves, and close the bypass valve. The bypass valve should be directly between the other 2.

Yeah, I have questions too. Never had a Travel Trailer, our 191LT is ready to dewinterize. I have no clue where to start. Need to get it ready to roll.
