Help finding hotwater bypass valve!

I have an 07 Roo 233. When I open the access door for my hot water heater, it shows how to turn it on. That's all fine, but how do I find my bypass valve??

I'm not familiar with the Roo, I hope someone will come along soon to help you out. You may try a search on YouTube, it's amazing what can be found over there.

From my past experiances and numerous RVs owned, I have found:
Many times the hot water bypass valve will be located behind the water heater. And sometimes it maybe located no where near the water heater.

Its most likely behind the water heater normally accessible from the inside of of the camper via a false panel or door.
May or may not look similar to this picture.
Ps this pic shows the bypass in operation mode.

I went to You-Tube as you requested and found some important information! Thank you!

Yes! It was located under the seat of the dinette! There are red hoses and blue hoses like in the picture with two different valves. Assuming my unit was winterized before I purchased it, the important bypass valve should be the one that's turn on! Thanks for your help!!

The picture shows three valves... one on the red...one on the blue.... and one in-between. The one in-between is the 'by pass'. Do you have three valves behind the WH?
