Does anyone know if the 2010 2350s have a water heater bypass? The water heater is under the kitchen sink behind a wooden wall. Could it be hiding in there?  Help

Hi Tom,
In the process of getting info together to place my order for a 2011, I did ask.  The 2350 does have the water heater by pass.  I assume it was also included on the 2010.

On our 2007 2350, I think the hot water heater bypass setup is on the floor under the stove, but I am not certian.

I don't understand what purpose it serves.  When I winterize, I drain the hot water tank by pulling it's drain plug.  I'd never want to bypass the tank unless it sprung a leak while on a trip.

Ron,
The bypass keeps you from using six gallons of anti-freeze just to fill the hot water loop.

I found it. It is under and behind the lower left hand drawer. I pulled the drawer open and could see the crossover hose with three valves. When it comes time to use it, I will have to get the drawer out, and switch the valves. I know that I have to push down on one sides lever while lifting the other sides to remove the drawer. It did not want to come out this time, but next time it will, one way or another.
