Hot water bypass valve

Hi All
How do I get to the hot water by pass valve in my 2018 Isata 3 24FW. I can see it behind the draw under the stove. I really donít want to take the draw out

From your discription removing the drawer is how you get to it. Its not hard to remove the drawer (easier if you take the stuff out of the drawer first) extend it out all the way then move the clips up or down the operate opposite of each other and pull the drawer out of the rails. When you reinstall along the rails and push the drawer all the way in until it clicks then pull out all the way to ensure it is engaged done deal.

Much easier to remove a drawer than unscrew a panel that is required in many RVs. A small price to pay for compact unit with lots of storage and conveniences.

Bu you actually do need to take the drawer out.

I have same model and was able to pull draw out just a little farther after releasing stops to reach valve without completely removing drawer.

Maybe you could hire someone to come out from town and remove the drawer.

This is what I did

I have a Freelander Micro Mini 24' and I got tired of having to lay on the floor snd reaching under the cabinet so I cut a access from inside the storage compartment and then put a cover over the hole. This is so much easier now.

Why not? There aren't too many things on an RV that require less time or effort.

I think I'd just go with taking the drawer out, but that's just me.

If it was that simple I would just do that also. The valves are so far back they can barely be reached. You canít see the valves you have to basically feel your way. I am 6í1Ē itís a good thing I have long arms.

Makes total sense. I was commenting on the I3. The valves are very accessible with the drawer removed.
