Geetings from Grand Isle, Louisiana

Hello, we purchased a used 2014 Flagstaff 21fbs and we are currently on a shakedown trip here at Grand Isle State Park. I've been browsing and I'm having trouble finding information on where the water heater bypass is on this model. (No owner's manual). Also need to know where the breaker panel is located. Enjoying our second home tremendously, but could use more hot water. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry can't help as I am not familiar with the Flagstaff but you might try posting in the Flagstaff area and maybe someone there can help.

Anyway, welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forums from SW Idaho.

Look at the access panel outside, now go inside and imagine where the back would have to be.

Panel may be screwed on, under the fridge, in a cabinet behind a thin panel.

Under kitchen counter?

The valves you seek are on the back of the water heater.

There should be an accessible door in the rear or side closest to your water heater access on the outside of your RV. There will be the valve location as well as the water filter.

Hot water bypass on back of tank, if it has one. You may be able to get at it from the outside storage area. Maybe a wall board you can take down. Or inside the unit under here. Try looking under the bed for access.

Thanks for all the help! I did have to unscrew a panel in the front left corner storage to access the bypass valve. Is that where the breakers are in that lower console by the battery disconnect? While I'm asking that question, when I am set up for camping and plugged up to 30 amp power, should I push the battery knob in?

I do not disconnect the battery during camping season.

Battery must be connected for the breakaway to work, I would dislike it if I forgot to reconnect before hitting the road.
