2015 Leprechaun 220QB fresh water tank bypass

Does anyone own the above MH and can tell me where or if there is a fresh water tank bypass? I read online here that it maybe under the bed near the converter. I've removed paneling and have followed the water inlet to the FW tank, but I don't see any bypass. Is it possible that there is no bypass for the FW tank?

Please help. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill

Did FR ever get back to you? They forgot to install mine, so they sent me one and I installed on the line from the tank to the pump.

Yes, they did get back to me. I don't have a FW tank bypass valve.

"It sounds as if there is not a fresh water tank bypass valve, so very likely it is the older style and the winterizing instructions for the 2014 & older models will apply."

i would still put one in between your strainer and your fresh water tank easy to do, plus then for sure you won’t get antifreeze in that tank and you have away to shut off that tank if you ever have a leak, just go to ace buy a 1/2” valve and 2 clamps and install it, I do not like having any way not to shut it off. Just call it a safety valve you never know, and if you have to change the pump you can stop any water from flowing out all over the place. Just my advice to you. If you change that pump that water will continue to flow out until you reconnect it to the new pump.
