Water Heater Bypass Valve Location

I would like to winterize our Tracer 2670 to prepare it for the Michigan winter. The directions in the owner manual seem easy to follow, except I don't know where the water heater bypass valves are located or if the water heater is even equipped with them. Any info is appreciated.

Is there a removeable panel? I'll have to take a closer look when I'm able to get back out to the trailer.

Had the exact same question.... and the same answer! They were just behind the water heater behind a little tiny cabinet door.
