We have the 2016 model and it has the water heater bypass located beneath the lower bunk at the rear of the of the trailer behind the water heater. Once the bunk matress is out, there are 4 screws holding the chipboard down over the rear half. Once that is removed, you can reach the valves but they are hard to reach. This was not explained to us during our walk thru and as a result, our first camping trip last Fall did not have hot water. Even after looking at it, the valve between the input and output was facing the rear of the trailer and I couldn't see it at all so did not realize it was open.
As for a Water Pump converter winterizing kit, we didn't have one. I have bought a kit but not gotten around to installing it yet. The pump is located below the Kitchen sink. Not a lot of pipe on the intake side so I haven't commited yet to the time to get down and try to install it.
