Water Heater Bypass install 274dbh?

Has anyone installed a bypass on their Cherokee trailer? I thought it was straight forward until I started looking into it. My water pump does not have the twist connection on the suction side. Any help-pictures/videos?

Why would you bypass the water pump?

You need your water pump for winterizing.
Are you wanting to put in a winterizing valve?

Very easy to do.
