May mot have one. I had a Cougar 5er a few years back and it didn't have one. I had to add a valve.

The red arrow in this picture points to the outside location of your water heater. The bypass valves will be behind it and accessed either under the bed or by way of the side storage compartment. Since I donít own that model thatís the best info I can give you.

Thank you.. that's the model I have. Right behind where the red arrow is the tub with a TINY opening and you can't get to or see anything.. so I'm assuming it's not there. Unless I take out the whole shower to see.. lol. So I'm not sure what else to do.

We are going to try to take off the panel below the bunk beds.. but I think it's only the outdoor kitchen.

Did you look underneath for access hatch covers? Typically, round spin on covers.

I have a Wildwood Toy Hauler 19ssxl, similar. I had a bear of a time finding my shut off valve. I finally found it under my bed. FR screwed on the plywood under the mattress, therefore I would have never have found it, but I pulled out a drawer and there it was.

Not sure of your floor pattern, but you may want to look under the bed.
