Shut off valves for Aqua Hot, Heater Core

As we prepare for a long winter trip, I was thinking of how I would shut off the flow of engine coolant to the pre-heat loop in the Aqua Hot and also to the dash heater core. I have not seen (may have missed them) any valves in lines coming from the ISL/engine compartment. Does anyone know if we have such valves on the Allure? My Winnebago Journey had a valve for both the hose going to the forward heater core and to the motoraide loop in the water heater.

Why do you want to shut off the flow of hot engine coolant to either the Aqua Hot or the dash heater core for a winter trip?
(I may be wrong?.. but I believe if both are ON they will help heat the cabin while traveling).

Good to have shut off valve in case of a hose failure, clamp failure, heater core leak. Just wanted to know if we have any.

I don't think there are any shut off valves in the system
