I don't have your model but if a tank type heater (not tankless) they are typically located behind the water heater (accessed from inside the trailer) or in a wet bay. (accessed from outside in the wet bay)

Often times you need to remove a panel, drawer, or open a cabinet to access them when inside. Find the location of your water heater on the outside, then go inside to the corresponding area of the outside location to start your search.

You should be looking for something like this...

If this is your unit:

it appears to be under the shower/bathroom sink. You probably have to access it from the pass through. Look for a panel, probably screwed shut - they like to do that.

I've attached a pic of the various ways they've figured out how to plumb the bypass valves.
