FR3 Winterization

Where would I find the bypass line for the water heater?

Here's some photos, on the lower ones they show.

1. The valves are in the outside compartment next to the water heater.

2. When you open the outside compartment you'll find a plastic cover. You could unscrew the round hatch in the middle of the cover to reach the valves, but most folks just remove the whole cover so they can see what they are doing, it's only 4 screws.

3. The bypass valves are are next to the water heater and are shown in winter position.

The larger picture above shows the hose and valve where you add the antifreeze, its in the same compartment.
