You need to post your specific unit info to get better guidance.

I dont know which model Puma you have , But I have a 2012 Puma 25RS.
The water heater is on the outside of the trailer with the tank right behind it. To get to the bypass valves you need to remove the cover from the inside panel. Mine on the 25RS is under the fridge. Then you just turn the inlet valve and the outlet valve off and the heater is bypassed

If you look in the WH compartment and see which direction the water lines come from, then go inside and look for a panel that you would remove to get to the by-pass.

Model #???

it would help knowing the specific model, since they can be in different areas for different models.
that way owners of the same model, can be a better source of info.
