Bypass valve

So we are getting ready for our first trip and I am getting ready to dewinterize and I have a question about the bypass valve on our 2109s. The bypass valve is inline with the pipe. Is this in the bypass position? The valves on the hot and cold lines are perpendicular to the line. When do I switch the bypass and the hot/cold valves? Also, there is a canister next to the hot water heater full of the pink stuff. I'm assuming this is the water filter canister. Do I need to empty it or will it empty when I flush the lines? And when should I actually put the filter in.
This newbie thanks you!!

Id flush all the antifreeze out with fresh water and sanitize system
Before installing filter.
Also take off canister and drain anti freeze so that it will fill with fw.

Yes, you need to turn all of those valve 90. When a valve is inline with the pipe, that is the on position. When it is perpendicular, that is the close position. You want to set it up that water is going through the lines that go into and come out of the water heater, and the line that connects those 2 lines needs to be closed.
