2016 Vibe 311rls hot water bypass

Want to know if anyone here knows where the bypass valves are located in a 2016 Vibe 311rls? I see 2 panels that go to the water heater but they are screwed on, do I have to remove one of them? Thank you in advance for any help.

I understand what you meant, as the link shows how to access the back of your water heater for the electrical AND the water bypass valves, as stated in the third sentence of that #10 post.

It's all the same.

Yep, most likely have to unscrew a panel.

This thread may also help as it has schematics on how the winterization valves should be set both for normal use... and for winterization where you can bypass/drain the water heater and/or add antifreeze to the water lines.

Wa heater bypass panel access

Got tire of screwing and unscrewing that panel, so mine is now velcro'd in place, and I just pull it off to access the valve
