Default Hotwater heater bypass, Conquest 6320

Hello everybody:

Anyone out there know where the hotwater bypass is on a Conquest 6320 motorhome?

I have enclosed a pic of the water heater from the outside, but nothing looks obvious to me. I also looked under the sink and removed a panel under the sink, but still nothing.

Just returned last night from Packers game. It was 65F today - totally nuts for December 4th. Anyway, the cold is moving in and it will be in 20s later tonight/AM. I drained everything and dried the lines, but obviously for long term, I'd like to do it right with RV antifreeze.

Thanks everyone!

The bypass valve(s) are on the plumbing side of the hot water tank, so not accessible from this outside panel, but about 2 ft inward of this.

I am not familiar with your unit, but here is what it looks like on mine. The hot water tank is encased in insulating foam. I have a single valve, shown in "Normal Flow".

Hi Larry:

Ahhh! Yes, I've seen that. I believe that I saw that behind the panel I pulled off. I just didn't know what I was looking at. I'll have a closer look this weekend when it's a bit warmer, and see if I can send some antifreeze through the system.

Outstanding! Thanks!
