Location of water heater bypass on 2015 Bounder

I've been a full timer since 2016 but, this year I'm storing for 3 months and am winterizing the Beast myself. From watching videos on how to pump antifreeze through the system, I understand that I need to bypass the water heater and there are valves to make this happen.

Can someone advise of where they are located in my 2015 Fleetwood Bounder 33C?

Thanks and happy holidays

Bypass is usually on the back of the water heater connected to the input and output pipes.

Water heater bypass

I googled your info. Some interesting comments. Some implied taking out drawers and others stated there might be a panel that has to be removed. Generally the bypass is very close to your water heater. If you have the red plumbing lines try following them off water heater and those that lead up to it. Look for a white valve. Don’t think you will have to remove refrigerator as one person was implying. The panel I referenced to my have small screws holding it in or could have a hole in which to pull open. Good luck.
