Bypass valve location on Zinger 18BH

Does anyone know where the hot water heater bypass valve is on a 2017 Zinger Z-1 Lite series 18BH model?
The unit has the winterizing hose connected to the water pump to easily push antifreeze through the lines but I removed an access panel under the tub and the bypass valve wasn't there.
I'm concerned I may have to unscrew the wood that makes up the bottom bunk but hope someone can confirm the location before I tear into anything else.

Thanks.

John

Locate the water heater and the bypass is on the backside of it. You will probably have to remove a panel to gain access.

I just looked up your camper and the water heater is just left of center in the back. It looks access would be thru the trunk door then it may be behind a panel or you may have to remove the lower bunk mattress and look for a access point - removable panel that would be held on with screws.

Hope this helps and welcome from Mo.

I will take a look under the lower bunk mattress and see if there is a panel I can remove there.

Thanks for the replies.

The lower bunk of my Sunset Trail bunkhouse is hinged in the middle. It folds over to reveal the water heater and the water valves.

Thanks to all for the replies. I have to keep the trailer at my daughters house due to HOA rules at my house so my reply is slow as I hadn't been able to look at it. We were there for Christmas today so I crawled around it looking for the access point. The hot water heater is definitely under the bunk bed but there is no access from inside. On the outside is a storage door underneath the bunk. When you open the storage door, inside on the right side of it is a wood wall that requires 3 screws to be removed and then there is easy access to the bypass valve behind the water heater.

Now you can cut a big square hole in the wood ,add a couple hinges and make aan access door. . Makes it easier fornext time.
