you are thinking correctly. parallel to line is open.

Cross is off inline is open. A little tip : after you winterize return the valves to the summer position. Saves having to access the lines to change the valves again especially if they are hard to get to.

I leave mine in winter position and covers off so I can flush antifreeze out of lines and not get any in HW tank.

Back when I used anti freeze I would run some into the water heater till it came out the drain then bypass it so it would get flushed in the spring. Leave the drain open and flush till clear then put drain plug in and continue till you have clear water everywhere. I have had some campers that the water heater was a real pain to get to so just change the valves back while I was there and be done then in spring give it a good flush and your good to go.

However you do it works for you. The main thing is protecting the water lines.

Happy Camping
