    Disregard the previous PM's. I figured out the by-pass quandry. Once I drew a sketch of the valving it was pretty obvious. Dont know why Newmar couldnt do that...

    I also found that not only did the water heater fill, put I pressurized it so much that when I removed the drain plug, the stream of water shot out about 20 feet, and of course blew the plug and sacrifical rod out... I was, of course, not standing in front of it. I thought there would be a stream of water, but not at what appeared to be 100 psi.

    Dont understand that either... why so much pressure?

    I Norm, since your on here...

    I am in the process of de-winterizing. I thought I by-passed the water heater last fall and left the valves in the by-passed position so that I would know which ones and how to reset them in the Spring. That way I wouldnt have to remember, just change them.

    The problem is... when I began to fill the tank to flush I noticed that the water heater was filling. Why would it fill if it was by-passed?

    Now I am confused on the by-pass valve positions.

    P.S. Newmar called and are sending me a refund check for the new Michelins.
