Water Heater question?

Hello Im new to RVing and I want to ask maybe a stupid question before I fire the unit. I just de-winterized the tt 22 rbds and now I want to fire up the water heater. Im not sure I have all the valves in the right position. Here is a picture of the configuration I have currently and it sounds like water went into the heater unit while I ran the water pump for about 2 minutes. fresh water tank has about 3/4 full Any help would be appreciated.

I like to pull the relief valve to 1) get the air out and 2) make sure I do have water. You do not want to fire up the electric part of the hot water heater (if equipped) without water in it.

There are 3 valves. The 2 closest to the heater should be open. The one that bypasses and connects those 2 pipes together should be closed..

Edit: Now you have a picture up!!! Looks right to me.

The valves are closed when the handle crosses the pipe (or makes a T)...and open when the handle is parallel with the pipe.

For winterization, you want the inlet and outlet valves closed and the bypass valve open.

For use, you want the inlet and outlet valves open and the bypass valve closed.......................which it appears from your pic you have correct.
