Got a new 2011 Catalina 30 BHS this summer. Walk through was basically worthless and will never buy from this dealer again, but that's a story for another day...... This is my 3rd camper so I'm familiar with maintenance and have always done my own work, but I'm baffled.
The walk through guy told me to winterize I need to remove the anode rod from the water heater so I could fill the fresh water tank with antifreeze and run it through the lines, including filling up the water heater.
Well I obviously know that's ridiculous and have removed a couple panels to find the factory already installed a kit on the pump so no need to fill up the tank...... However, I can't find a way to get to the water heater bypass. I called Coachmen and they said a bypass is standard on my unit, but didn't know where it was located. I've removed every panel that doesn't look to be permanently installed but no luck.
Anyone else know where to look? It's located pretty much under the stove and there is one panel with the propane alarm that's screwed, but it doesn't want to budge. I hate to use force and damage it if that's not where I need to be looking.
On a side note, we absolutely love the camper, especially the outside kitchen option. Just a little disappointed I can't get help from the dealer or Coachmen with what should be an easy question.
