Hot water by pass for Citation Sprinter

Does anybody know a easy way to get to the Hotwater heater bypass valve on a 2013 Citation Sprinter 24r. I can see the bypass valves from the driver's side access hole under the bedroom I am trying to sanitize the fresh water lines and need to bypass the heater. Thanks

May I ask why you don't want to sanitize the inside of the water heater tank?

I was told that the bleach would have a negative effect on the heater.

Me thinks you were told wrong!
It makes no sense to sanitize the fresh waterlines and not the water heater.
Call the WH maufacture and ask....(nobody knows your WH better than the manufacturer).

It does sound kind of silly when you put it that way. Appreciate your thoughts. We were told not to by the friendly folks at Camping World. Best bet is to take it to the manufacturer. Thanks

I called Atwood, the manufactor of the WH. They said no bleach. I could use an alternative like Thetford(sp?) makes. Just thought I'd pass it along
