My only question is, what is the diagram illustrating? Is that diagram illustrating valve position when bypassed, or valve position when not bypassed?


I assume that illustration is showing you the valve positions when bypassing the water heater, in which case, I would think the valves should all be opposite of the illustration, am I alone in that thought process?

In my picture the red arrows point to the two valves that should be turned so that they are parallel to the line. That is the open position. All the other valves in the picture are in the correct position for normal water heater operation.

In this picture the double arrow is referencing the same valve. That valve is in the closed position. If you want to use water from your fresh water holding tank that valve must be open and then turn your water pump on.

Looks to me that the two middle valves should be open and the top valve should be closed. Unless I'm missing something.

In this picture the red arrow points to the valve on the anti-freeze siphon line. This valve should be in the closed position at all times unless you are siphoning anti-freeze from a bottle. In your picture the valve is closed…that’s a good thing believe me.

And as was pointed out in an earlier post, the three valves on the water heater are in the by-pass position. All three valves need to be turned. You have much easier access to those valves than I have on my Silverback.

Toddupton was right in post #2.

wls, you've given us a pic of your control valves. Can you also post a pic of your water heater?

I was just wondering if you had all the tanks open, and that is why water is perhaps running out a low point drain.

Can you push these handles in any more?


There shut, just alot of gap. I'll make sure tonight, pull all three out and shut. Thanks

I'll check again, but if I turn the 2 valves (in line) water pours out the big clear hose out the bottom of coach

Your in bypass for your hot water. the three valves i circled should be changed. you will have water come from your taps due to the middle valve being open. the others take water to and from your hot water heater
