Bypass valve on 2017 Escape 19

Bought the trailer used.
Is there an easy access to the bypass so I can winterize?
Mine has foam board under bed on driver side of trailer. Is the bypass behind that?

Thanks for any help..

I'm guessing you're asking about the water heater bypass.
Should look like this.

I know what it should look like and how it works.
I was wanting some advice on locating it in a Escape 19

Graphic says it is located at the rear of the water heater. Consists of two valves.

Found it after removing foam board under bed platform. Not a fun location for the stuff joints.

Thanks

Was that foam board added by previous owner?
Also your profile still says you are looking for a 19'.

On my 2018 - 19 I just open the doors on the front of the bed and turn the taps...the bed and foam board stay in place.
