Rockwood Mini-lite 2104s water heater by pass valve location

Had trailer winterized as required by a dealer and now I'm going to attempt to dewinterize the trailer on my own. I've seen you tube videos on doing dewinterizing and they discuss a br pass valve. I'm a newbie and this is my first trailer and I can't find this valve. I thought it would be near the kitchen/bathroom sink area but the hot water tank is on the other side of the trailer. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks

The valves are going to be located on the back of the hot water heater...literally! Access can be challenging at times...see below.

We took our new Conquest LE out this weekend and it had been winterized since the purchase. I had no hot water for the first 2 hours...because after searching, I realized I had to lift up the lower bunk and crawl ALL THE WAY to the rear of the trailer where the backside of the hot water heater was to open the HOT/COLD and shut the bypass valve.

Just one a few adventures this first time out with the new TT!

We had the same problem finding ours. They are indeed physically on the back of the water heater. We had to remove the inside panel in a kitchen cabinet to access ours (the screws were there for access).

Yup, getting to water heaters in small trailers sometimes requires a contortionist.

Thank you all for your advise. Think I located it in the pass thru storage area in the front of the trailer.
