By-pass valve on ZT-270-RL

Quick question. This will be my first time winterizing this trailer.
Right behind the water heater, on the inside of the trailer, is a panel, right under the oven. The panel is held in with four screws. Is this where I will find the by-pass valve? Is there only a single by-pass valve on this unit?
I guess the dealer should have covered this issue on our walk-thru.

This is just one more thing to add to the issues we have had with this "new" trailer.
We had our 3010 Nomad for nineteen years.

Thanks
Tom

Yes.

Likely there is a valve on the cold inlet (close this), and one on the bypass line (open this). Hot water line has a check valve in the water heater.

If you are lucky you will see another line that comes from pump but goes nowhere. This line is used to suck up antifreeze into the lines. Make sure to bypass WH first.

If the crossroad manual had this photo, there would be less questions on this topic out there.

Great image and overlay.

Thanks!

It is a great picture. A perfect example that deserves a "sticky".
