Atwood Water heater bypass in Vegas 25.2

On our 2017 25.2 we just purchased I cannot find the water heater bypass anywhere. Heater is an Atwood GC6AA-10E which has a 10 gallon tank.
As the unit was purchased used from a non-Thor dealer, they have no clue. Hard to believe there would not be a bypass valve. Any help?

Water heater bypass will be on the inside of the coach where the water heater is. You may have to remove a panel to get access to it.

Looks like the water heater is under/next to the bathroom sink--I would start my search there.

Are you sure you have an Atwood water heater? It may have a tankless heater which doesn't have a bypass valve (I believe they started installing those in 2017).

Yes, pulled the information right off of the unit accessed from vent on driver's side of coach. Looked behind all panels and even behind the drawers. See water lines but only found the drain valves for winterization which are only connected to small hoses exiting floor.

In our 25.2, the water bypass is accessible from under the couch. You have to lift up the base of the couch and look toward the bathroom. They are hard to see because they are right beside the heater which is technically in the bathroom.

Now, this is for the 6 gallon heater. Iím not sure if that would be the same for the 10 gallon.

We have a 2017 25.2 and you have to open the couch just right then contort yourself (really) and look under the wall toward the bathroom. They are there. I know as I found both valves to be in the wrong position from the dealer new.

Our Vegas 2017 25.2 has a tankless water heater.
