Something running as in water? or burner? The bypass is on the back of the WH but sometimes they are not installed. You can pick up from camping world or amazon and install it yourself if it is not there there are many pictures of them on this forum (just search) and they are easy to install.

Need some more specifics if we are to be of much help.

I just got the unit used. I used to have a Class A Reflection. Everything is different.
I'm trying to winterize, I've done all of the usual stuff but the water heater sounds like it's boiling water I don't know for sure if there is water in the heater.There is a valve in a water line in the plumbing under the bed. It was not turned parallel to the water pipe.
It was turned cross ways.I turned it in the flow direction.I found the fuse panel on the side of the bed and killed that water heater switch.I already shut the WH switch off at the convenience panel
