access to water heater

I have a 2017 Heritage Glen 35'. I am trying to locate the access to the hot water heater so I can open the valves to flush the antifreeze out of the lines. I have tried what appeared to be an access panel in the bedroom bureau but that was stapled down. I opened up a drawer in the chest of drawers and can see the valves that I need to get to. My question is do you usually have to remove a drawer to access this equipment or am I missing something. I have spoken to the dealer and he was no help (big surprise).

You should have a BIG Door on the OUTSIDE! Sorry but Some/Lots of units also require Removal of Walls/Doors/Drawers to be able to See/Reach the Valves! Youroo!!

On my unit (35í 282RK) you have to remove the bottom drawer in the wardrobe to access the bypass valves. Raise the bed up to gain more room to pull the drawer out.

I have a 27ft tst and I can hear the hot water heater kick on but I never get hot water. Is there some way to turn up the heat like on the hot water heater in the house or is this a job to take to a worker.

My dealer sucks so will not go back there. Any help or ideas are welcome!

How long have you not had hot water?
The HW tank probably does not have an adjustable thermostat.
But your problem is probably:
1. Valves in bypass mode or
2. Outside shower valves open
