De-winterizing 2015 Forest River Wildwood 29FKBS

Does any one know how to get to the by pass valves to de-winterize the 2015 Forest River Wildwood 29FKBS. It's a front kitchen and i have been told the valves are below the kitchen sink. What I don't know is how to get to them? It doesn't look like there is much room under the sink, unless you are very small and skinny. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I purchased the unit in January and want to take a shake down run in April.

The valves should be attached to the back of your water heater where ever that is

The water heater is located in the front in the kitchen area, but it is not easily accessible from the inside. I was hoping someone with this specific model (front kitchen) might have some experience on how the winterized and de-winterized this model.

I have a '06 Surveyor and found the valves behind a panel next to the sink. Check to see if you have a blank panel that is screwed in (four corners). Remove the panel and it may be there. As noted above, it is near the hot water tank.

I have to remove a panel under my sink. 2 screws. To access my valves. They are most always on the back of the hot water heater. That you can locate from the outside by finding the access panel.
