Hot Water Heater Location - Brookstone 340LS

Throwing this out to those who might have a Coachmen Brookstone 5th wheel....We have a 2014 340LS and we use it year round, so I have had no need to winterize it, and have had no problems with the hot water heater. As such, I haven't looked for it. That being said, I have a general idea of where it is, but before I go start taking things apart, I was wondering if any of y'all could give me an idea of how to access it.

Thank you.

Look for this type of panel on outside of your trailer and your water heater is behind it.....

X2 on what Fonzie stated. According to this video, it's right in front of your super slide, and back of your pass -thru with the water station.....and seems to be under your shower

Thanks. I know where the external access is, just wondering were the internal (if any) access is for bypass valves etc. I can gauge where it might be based on the external vent access just was wondering if anyone new specifically where the internal access is before I start removing panels, eyc

If yours is like mine, in the basement storage you will find a couple of panels that close the basement towards the rear of the camper. You will need to remove one or more of these panels to access the back of your water heater.

Once I had the panel out, I cut an access hole (reattaching with small hinges and a latch), so that I could reach the bypass valve without removing nearly everything from the basement and taking out the panels each year.

Thanks to all. Looks like I have a weekend project. After mowing the grass, we are finally drying out down here in TX.

I have to remove the bottom drawer from the cabinet to access water alignment/bypass. Of course there is an inside panel, inside of one of the cabinet if repairs are necessary.
