The 12 volt water pump is usually close to the fresh water tank , and you should be able to track it down by it's sound , with a tap open . You may have to remove panels for access.
Water heater by pass valve(s) are normally on the back of the tank and again removing a panel for access is a possibility.

I have no idea if your 97 is anything like my 06, but on mine, the water pump is directly under the fridge. There is a panel that just pops off. My water heater bypass is under the sink, which is where the water heater is.

Ok i found the bypass under the sink. Of course this was after unscrewing multiple covers elsewhere. I beleve this is on bypass, meaning i never filled my water heater.

without seeing how they connect to the water heater, it's hard to say.

That water heater is pretty clearly bypassed. The bypass valve is open, meaning the hot and cold lines are connected to each other, and the hot and cold valves are both closed. I don't think we need to know how the water heater is plumbed to be able to say that.
