HWT bypass valve

In years past, I parked my RV in Arizona and never had to winterize. This year, however, I am leaving the RV in Washington and plan on winterizing the MH. I have a 2005 Lexington 255GTS. It's a great vehicle but the instruction manual is terribly lacking.

It does not tell me where the hot water tank (HWT) bypass valve is located. I've looked in various places but cannot find it. I had a Coachmen Class C for years and though the Lexington is a far superior RV, I will admit the Coachmen had a far superior instruction manual.

Any help will be appreciated. BTW, I have searched previous Forest River forums on this topic and the responses were too generic to be of help. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I followed the suggestion and found the HWT valve. The 255GTS seems to have only one (1) valve instead of the three (3) I would expect. Have I found the correct valve or should I be looking for the 3 valve setup. Thanks.

I have seen them with a 1, 2, or a 3 valve setup. You just want to make sure as the valves can sometimes be hidden somewhat.
