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.

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.

Aliner? Not something we're familiar with. Can you post a picture?

Wrong manufacturer. It's an Aliner Ascape

The Aliner Ascape is a modified teardrop camper.



Aliner is known for their A-roofed popup campers.
