Hi
We have a 99 Itasca Suncruiser and I am trying to figure out the water heater bypass for winterizing. I have fount a t valve on the cold water feed line to the water heater but it seems to just pass the water into the hot water line. From tracing the line this leads back to the hot water outlet on the water heater. Would this not fill the water heater from the hot water outlet? Or is the hot water outlet a one way connection (flows out but cannot flow in)?? Thanks for any info.

There is a check valve on the outlet (hot) side of the HW heater. My personal winterizing procedure is to leave everything as is, drain the whole water system including the HW heater, and then blow everything out with compressed air, and just add a little anti-freeze to the P traps.
