Help in finding bypass valves

I am having a problem. Can't find the bypass valve. We just bought a Shasta. Revere fifth wheel. Any suggestions?

Just to the left of the panel that has the sewer valves, freshwater and city water and maybe the battery switch the panel has screws that you remove and access the valves. Not an easy task but after you get the panel off good access

I remember my first time out in my Leprechaun. The first shower I took was a cold one. I wasn't going through that again. I searched the entire coach for at least two hours before I found them. There's a screw cover at the bottom of the nightstand in the bedroom. It looks like a heater vent but it isn't.

The HW bi pass is at the rear of the HW heater. You can find a panel on the inside of the trailer that is equivalent to where the heater is located outside. A couple of screws should be all you need to remove it.

If you have a dual power (Gas/AC) water heater you must make sure the AC power switch (or breaker) is off before applying power to your camper.

The AC heating element will burn up immediately should power be applied without water in the tank. If you are unsure, briefly open the pressure relief valve behind the outside metal grill. Water should come out under pressure.

Be careful because if the water heater has been running the water will be hot!
