Hot Water Heater Bypass

I have a 2007 HR Endeavor with three slides. Mt hot water heater is on the curbside. I have an access door in the bay adjacent to the hot water heater and can see the by-pass valves for the hot water heater,but can't reach them from the access door. What am I missing?

Probably engineered by a primate with extra long arms. I assume you're reaching in with the slides retracted? I'd use a forked stick or a little kid to turn the valves.

I'd also look inside for an access. That's where most of them are. You might need to uncover it by removing a panel

The bypass is through the small door that you mentioned and and to the left side of that door. To help it would be a good idea to take a small mirror to explore whats inside. On our 08 Holiday Rambler there was enough behind the hot water heater so that I was able to mount the central vacuum in there so you could reach and change replacement bags. Other advice from owners of different makes is nice but sometimes sends you in the wrong direction.
