Water heater bypass valve

We just purchased a Coachmen 320BHDSLE. I can't figure out how to access the bypass valve for the water heater. HELP!!

If it's like mine, there's a panel you remove in the bunkhouse on the lower right corner of the wardrobe. It's directly behind the water.

Does the panel slide or is it screwed down?

There should be a panel that is screwed close that can be access if you open the far right wardrobe door under the bed.

It's in the bottom of the last cabinet in the bunk house. It's on the left as you are facing the rear of the camper. There are to square tipped screws that are about 3" long. Unscrew those and the piece will slide out.

Side note: If you look carefully, you'll notice that the screws are not quite square, although a proper-size square drive will work. They're Robertson screws, probably a #2. Home Depot carries Robertson screwdrivers. I got a #1 and #2 in my tool box.
