Have a Forester 2801QS class C.
Can someone tell me where the water heater bypass is located?
Thank you

Usually very close to the water heater. My Cherokee has two valves, one on the cold inlet and one on hot outlet of water heater. There is a loop of hose from one valve to the other.
It's going to depend on the model of your TT or 5er or MH.

Look where it is out side and measure from,the door then do the same inside and see where that is. Door, cabinet or false panel will be where you will find the valves. Mine are deep under the kitchen sink at floor level. Hope this helps.

Yes the bypass valves are behind the panel at floor level in kitchen. You can simply take bottom drawer out and reach them. No need to unscrew the panel

Would the bypass be in the same spot on a 2007 Forester?
