Hey I am new to this forum and joined to see if anyone could help me on telling me how to access the bypass valve on my water heater? It seems to be behind the shower. Any help would be appreciated!

My model # is 285DRL4. And I think I got it. I had to open up the underbelly storage and take screws out of the back wall of the storage area and gained access to the pump and water heater from there. Now I just hope I do everything right.

Maybe I should ask this: On this model is all I have to do is blow air thru all the lines then pump some antifreeze thru the same lines like I did my other campers? Oh and blow out the black tank flush with air?

You should bypass the heater to keep the pink stuff out of there. Why you ask? I am not sure. Just what i heard.

Yes, do it just like you did on your previous campers. You don't need to winterize the black tank flush but it won't hurt to blow air through it. There isn't a check valve, only a vacuum breaker and the water usually drains out through the spray nozzle and the outside connection.

If you don't bypass the water heater you will need more than 6 gallons of antifreeze to winterize. Just drain it by letting it cool down and remove the drain plug after you turn the bypass valves. If you have a Suburban WH winterizing is a good time to inspect the anode. Just put it back in with teflon tape wrapped on the threads when your done to keep the creepy crawlies out. The anode/drain plug on the Suburban is 1=1/16". Atwood has a 7/8" drain plug.
