Sandpiper 301BHD


I am the new owner of a used Sandpiper. So far I love it and the family has really enjoyed it. I am starting to think about winterising and have a question about the hot water heater. Does anyone know if the 301 water heater comes with a bypass? Can I access the back side of the water heater from the back bedroom compartment?

Find the W/H on the outside and then look on the inside to see if there is some cabinet covering it. The bypass valves are just behind the water heater tank, and there is usually some cover you can remove to get to it.

The bypass is in the compartment under the rear closet. Four phillips head screws and you should be in.
