Hot water tank

Can someone tell me which way the hot water tank bypass needs to be up or flipped horizontally when I am flushing out all my anti freeze from winter?

Purge your lines in the (Winter Position),then place in (Summer Position) to fill the W/H. The Bypass line should be closed and the H&C open to tank for Summer use! Youroo!!

I don't know your camper at all, but as a general rule.
If the valve is parallel with the water line, it is open, if it is at 90 degrees to the water line it is closed.

on mine there are 3 valves and the valve handles points in the same direction as the pipe when open and form a t when closed. Until you get clear water out all the faucets, both hot and cold, don't touch the bypass so you don't get antifreeze in the hot water tank. Once you get this close the bypass and open the other 2 valves on mine.

Ok my bypass is making a t. My other ones are going with the pipes. So I can turn water pump on now and and flush all the anti freeze out? And it won't go in my hot water tank?

Can you take a pic of them.
I think you have it backwards right now but not sure.
Your bypass should be OPEN (parallel) and the others closed (T). But I am not positive of your set up.

Ok
The red valve is in the right position, put the blue one in the same, can't tell from the pic what it is in.
The valve with teh red and blue connection should be parallel with the hoses, it looks like it is.
That will bypass your hot water tank.
