Red face Help please

I feel silly, but I am new to my Crossroads Cruiser. I can't figure out how to get water to the hot water heater. I looked at all the paperwork that came with it and can't get any information. It is a 2010. Also, if anyone can tell me exactly how to winterize it. It costs a small fortune and I am on a fixed income.

It’s probably set on winterize. On winterized the water bypasses the water heater, this is so you can pump RV antifreeze throughout your water lines and bypass the water heater; which you drain. You should have some valves behind your water heater. Here’s a couple pictures that shows winterized and normal use. By the way on my Cruiser the water heater is inside drivers side front side storage compartment, behind a ply board wall. The wall unscrews or I just reach over the top and with a flashlight I can barely see over the top to see the valves.

Also to winterize you have to turn the valves on the back of hot water tank to winterize, drain the water heater for the outside (by removing big plug). At the water pump you turn the valve near the extra hose, towards the flow of hose ( hose is usually about two feet long), put the end of hose in a jug of RV antifreeze. Go inside and turn on the water pump and it will suck antifreeze into the water lines. Go to each faucet and turn on hot and cold handles one at a time until you see antifreeze come out. Do the same in the kitchen sink, bathroom sink, shower, toilet (flush), and out side shower and outside low point drains ( my low point drains are on passenger side underneath in front of wheels). Also drain black and grey tanks and fresh water tank. On my fifth wheel I usually use two gallons of RV antifreeze to winterize. Unhook battery or if you have a battery shut off (turn it off). Maybe I remembered everything. Someone will jump in if I didn’t.
