WP25ULA water heater bypass access

Ok I am asking all you WP25ULA (or like trailers) about the water heater bypass valves. Ok I KNOW its under the bed... at the back of the water heater...DUH!!

However my biggest problem is... it is VERY hard to get to. REALLY?!?..

Do the engineers NOT UNDERSTAND we can not bend at 180 degree angles to even remotely get to these bypass valves. I am an average sized woman with small hand and wrists. I can NOT even to the valves to turn them. I cant imagine a man getting his hands in there to turn off the valves.

SUGGESTION: Why do they NOT put a small door or opening in the side of the bed so we can get to these valves?

So hubby and I are putting a small door/ vent hole or something else so we can get to the back of the water heater.

I think the people who design and build rv units should HAVE to use them!!
If you have never camped in one, traveled in one... you should NOT be able to design or build them!!

Hey Forest River... I am avaliable for hire!! I have studied interior design and have been camping and traveling in rv's since I was a little kid.
I HAVE A CLUE!! Contact me!!
