Help winterizing a Coachmen 27QB

I am new to RVing and I've been reading everything I can and looking for Youtubes. I understand the process but I cannot find the water heater bypass valves in my unit. Anyone familiar with the Coachmen 27QB? Thanks

Welcome to the forum!


It very well be behind a panel near the water heater. If your WH is located under your sink (or a cabinet) then you will probably have to get to them from the inside.

From looking at your layout I would guess the water heater is under and to the left of the kitchen sink. Under that nice counter top you have. First look under the sink to the left. Second the remove the back cushion for the dinette and see if there is a panel behind it that can be removed.

My panel was screwed in place. It is now held in place with Velcro. Also my unit has three valves.


Hope this helps.

Unless you have a spec sheet that says you have water heater bypass valves, I don't think you do.
I don't have them on mine and looking at the position of the WH, I don't know where I would put them if I bought them.
The WH is on the bottom of the coach and most of the backside is out in the road area.
I plan on doing a deep look behind the circuit breaker panel and under the fridge....but I'm not optimistic. It almost seems like if we did have them, you'd almost have to take the fridge out to get to them.
I hope it's just something I'm not seeing, but I got to believe they're not there.

Thank to everyone who replied to my post. I was able to find the water heater bypass valves on my 2017 Coachmen 27QB. They were way down behind a vent under the refrigerator.

John,

With all due respect, that doesn't make sense.

My first Coachmen Freelander was a 2014 28QB (without a slide).

We now have a 2013 29QB (with a slide).

On BOTH of my Coachmen, the water heater bypass valves are located AT the water heater. The water heater is near the kitchen on the drivers side.

The forced air "house" heater is under the refrigerator on the passenger side.

Are you sure that your water heater bypass valves are under the fridge?

Are your low-point drains under the back bed?

Tim

John, looking at several different coaches of your model I saw one where the water heater is under the fridge. Is that where yours is?
