Bama is exactly correct. Pulling the drawers will verify if you have the bypass kit, but to use it, it really makes sense to remove the panel.

Remember: (IMPORTANT!)

2) BYPASS your water heater! (drain and clean separately)
3) Remove the water pump fuse next to the water pump
4) Turn on the red switch water pump switch on your micro panel.
5) when you are ready to run the pump put the fuse in the holder.
6) when it shuts off (and it should or you have a leak somewhere) go inside and turn on your faucets one at a time until you see red RV antifreeze; then close them.
7) Flush the toilet until you see red in the bowl
8) Don't forget to flush out the Turbo Flush if you have one
9) Don't forget to flush out the outside shower if you have one
10) You must also add antifreeze to the city water connection or blow it out with compressed air. Failure to do this will fail your city water check valve and could freeze the trapped water in the line from the city water valve to the plumbing T fitting.
Herk..when you "flush out " the turbo flush.. are you using air or anti freeze ??
