De-Winterizing

We are new Travel Trailer owners. We have a 2014 Sunset Trail Reserve 28BH. The dealer winterized it but we'd like to de-winterize it ourselves. Can anyone post how we do that?

Thank you

Do a search on this forum for more detail. Many post on this subject. Easy to do. Open all faucets, then open all drain lines. You can collect fluid if you have the containers. Hook up to water and rinse till clear. Turn water heater bypass valve off and fill and drain water heater. Also a good idea to sanitize fresh water holding tank. Don't forget outside shower.

We don't even know where the bypass valve is on the water heater

You have to access your water heater from inside the trailer. Look for a panel with a screw at each corner. It will be in the same location of the tt as the outside access. Mine is near the floor. There will handles on the lines near the heater. Typically perpendicular to the line is closed and parallel to the line is open. Turn the valves and fill the heater. Make sure water is in heater using overflow valve before turning the heater on. Check out the winterizing Winterizing forum for lots of threads on the issue.
