2013 Dutchman Denali

I was wondering if anyone has ( or had ) a Dutchman Denali 289 RK , we just purchased one and of course the owners manuals are completely worthless . I would like to know how you get at the back of the hot water heater to install a by-pass for winterizing , also where is the water pump located ? Thanks in advance !

Had a Denali just before the Class A, and the line are beautiful RV's...

The water heater by-pass should already be part of the plumbing. Remove the panel protecting the rear of the heater (inside backside of the unit). There should be 3 valves to stop the inlet and outlet and bypass (red and blue lines).
Looks much like the photo here:
Where is the water heater bypass valve?

The easiest way to drain the water out is with the plug on the exterior.

Water pump is different from each model. Ours was under the kitchen sink.

Best luck
