Hot water, but no hot water

I just dewinterized my trailer last night. After completing that task I opened the bypass on the hot water tank and filled it up. The water is hot but I can't get it to come out of the faucet. I have two valves under my sink and I have tried every combination to make it work...what am I doing wrong? You can see my trailer type below. Thanks in advance.

I can only read what you wrote, "I opened the bypass on the hot water tank." You should close the "bypass" on the water heater, and open the inlet valve to the water heater. Also, do you have any water at the sink?

Might be the (WHITE LIME CRAP) plugging up the fine screen. Are you getting cold water out of the faucet? Youroo!!

Supplemental to above: The valves are more "oval" shaped than "round". Close the water heater bypass valve so that the long axis is at 90 degrees to the pipe(closed). Make sure that the inlet and outlet (if configured) valves point along the pipe direction(open). If your sink(s) have supply valves, make sure they are open. Connect city water or fill trailer water tank. Open and close hot water and cold water faucets one at a time. You now should have both available, if not, my guess would be that you have a problem somewhere, like a blockage, that requires further digging. Good luck.

Sorry I am not making sense. Your email prompted me to go back and look under my sink again. I feel like such a fool. There are 3 valves down there. I could not see the third because of the angle I was looking at it. Problem solved! Sorry to waste everyone's time.
