360 DL hot water bypass?

I recently bought a 2016 Cross Country 360 DL and can't locate the means by which to bypass the water heater. The manual is of no help. Anyone with specifics, please chime in! Thanks.

Check out this video from FR. Interestingly enough, they are using a Cross Country in this example. You rig should be similair I would imagine.

Thanks for the video, but I'd already looked at it and while it has a nice close up of the bypass valve, it doesn't show where that compartment is located. Is it by chance behind the bedroom drawer on the passenger side? That location would be proximate to the water heater.

P.S. This is RV #3 for me and I've never had an mystery experience like this.

In the video it shows the valves in that outdoor compartment.

I think the ones they showed on the inside were from a different RV.

I do not own this model. Locate your hot water heater, then look inside your camper exactly behind. There should be an access panel you will need to remove, and should find your bypass valve.

Just making sure you have a tank type water heater and not an on demand tankless one.

Sometimes, I sit and wonder about what actually happened to all those people I gave directions to.

Well, I finally found it! It was located (logically) behind the lower left side bedroom drawer. That location is actually behind the heater. BTW it wouldn't have hurt for the manufacturer to have put that in the owners manual. On that point I have to say my twenty year old Winnebago Adventurer beat my current ride hands down.
