DeWinterizing 402QBQ Questions

Being a total newb at rving I did not ask the right questions when we PDI'd our trailer, but I am learning so much on this forum(thanks to all of you for your help and suggestions).
I've had the RV winterized by the campground we are parked at and getting answers during the winter is a long process so I thought I would ask here.
It's a little early I know to ask these questions but I need to know the following for dewinterizing my Wildwood DLX 402QBQ:
1: Where is the bypass valve for the water heater? I think it's under the kitchen sink but not sure.
2: What position should the handles be in to open the water to the water heater and get rid of the antifreeze?
3: Does my water heater have an anode in it? How do I find this out?( dealer is less than helpful).
Thanking all who answer in advance.
Terry

Valves are probably behind a panel that held in place by a couple of screws.
Flush anti freeze out before turning valves. There are three valves turn them all. Two will now be on and one will be off. What brand WH do you have?

If you pull drain plug out it will either be just a plug or plug with anode rod attached. just plug=no anode.

Fianally got a hold of the service dept and they say it's a Suburban water heater and yes it has and anode. I will be checking the condition of the anode in the spring time(which can't get here soon enough)
Thanks to uhduh Camping and Iwritecode for your help.
