Bypass valves on Adventurer 89RBS

Can anyone tell me where the bypass valve is for a Adventurer 89RBS to winterize? The dealer wants an outrageous price to winterize this unit I have and I want to do it myself. I can't find it and when I did the walk through I was not shown this when picking up the unit. Thank you in advance.

I don't know your floor plan or where your water heater is on the unit ; SO ; you need to be inside the unit where water heater is on the outside .

Look for a panel , mounted with screws ; could even be the floor of a cupboard ; that needs to come off/out for access to the back of the heater and hopefully you'll find valves factory installed for by-pass .

Other wise you'll need a kit , to install your own valves .

I found the bypass valve . They were in the closet of the camper by the bed that extends over the cab. The hot water tank is in the closet with a wooden box around it. The back is removable just remove three screws to remove the back cover of the hot water tank and there it is. Dealer never told me where it is plus the manufacturer was not helpful at all in their manual. They just tell you about the low point drains are and where the water pump is that has the attachment for the anti freeze. Thank you for your help.

Have you winterized RVs before ?

Don't forget to pull the outside plug ( or anode rod ) from the water heater .
