Question Hot water bypass on a T12BH "A" Frame

New to this and am needing to winterize. I can not find any water heater bypass valves on this little hard side. It is a 2015 Flagstaff Classic. Any help appreciated. Thx in advance.

There should be three valves near your hot water tank.....two lines going into the tank, each line will have a valve, the bypass will be the third valve that connects the two lines to each other....the valve should separate the two. To winterize, you turn the two line valves closed and open the bypass valve.

Find where the backside of your water heater tank would be from inside.

Under a seat?
Behind a panel that is screwed on?
Under a bed?

Thank you. I am familiar with the valve set up on other campers but can't find any way to get to the back of the heater on this model trailer. Are there bypass valves on this one? Don't want to use a chain saw to find them Ha Ha!

Put down the saw and step back please.


A #2 square drive tip and driver should be all you need.

Feel foolish, even dumb. Everything I was looking for is under the seat. Thanks for your help.

No need to feel down, dealer should have showed you during the PDI.

Glad you were able to get things scoped out.

Hot water bypass on a t12bh "a" frame

Mine is in a weird place. I have a 2009 Cherokee grey wolf 22bh. I actually have to crawl through the storage space to get to mine. What a pain. I would have thought they would have made an access panel. I would check for something like that
