Can someone help with finding water heater bypass on a 2018 275pack18

I picked up my new toyhauler a couple weeks ago and i cannot locate the the bypass on it. The person that did the walk through said it was under the bathroom sink, well nothing in there. Looked behind the kitchen drawers and I can see the water heater but not any bypass valves. Any help greatly appreciated.

It's close to the water heater but often in a compartment accessed by a door that has three hinges on it. On those you have to remove the single hinge with a screwdriver. In my trailer the water filter, water pump, and winterizing valves are all located in a compartment like that. If you want you can just install a normal cabinet door latch and handle. Then resist the urge to store stuff in that compartment. That's why they make it difficult to get into.

On my 25pack12 the bypass is right off the water heater in behind the kitchen drawers.

I can see the back of the water heater through the kitchen drawers but I dont think I can reach the water heater. I also noticed a red and blue line with valves hanging out directly under the water heater. Might have to try service where I bought the unit, starting to think person that did the walk through didn't know where it was either or how to work on it.

Looking at pics of your unit online, I would guess that panel above your kitchen drawers can be removed, but that's just my guess.

If these lines are under the trailer an just pointing down to the ground with each one having a valve, these are you low point drains used to empty the lines for winterizing. The by-pass valves are usually 3 valves. Mine is an older unit and uses 1 valve. Either way, they are always very close to the WH so not hard to find. Maybe behind a removable panel but accessible nun the less. Mine has a hand hole in the panel surrounding the heater to reach thru.
