Mistake on my part, this is not like any bypass system I have seen. I assume moving the top and bottom levers parallel to the pex lines bypasses the water heater?
Also, there does not appear to be an antifreeze inlet connection anywhere on this coach, to winterize do I put fluid in the fresh water tank and use the water pump?
You are correct, that water heater tank is NOT bypassed, but is instead in the normal usage mode. You would turn the handles to be in parallel line with the bypass line in order to by pass the tank.
As is, the cold water line open is going into the tank and the hot water line is open coming out of the tank.
Find your actual water pumps location. You may have an inlet/suction port there, that you use to pull antifreeze into the system via the water pump.....after you bypass the water heater tank.
This may help
P.S> Do you actually have a coach or a travel trailer?
