Bought a new used retro but there is no good manual that diagrams where everything is. I want to be able to look at my water heater to see if a bypass was installed. Where is the water heater located?

I’m not sure about your model, but we have a 177SE and the water heater is located under the driver’s side dinette seat.


I have another plumbing issue.  Apparently the check valve that is supposed to keep the city water from entering the fresh water tank may be sticking as I have had two incidents recently where the fresh water tank was filled to overflowing when I had the city water connected.  I called Riverside to get a plumbing schematic, but was told that it doesn’t exist.  I plan to call back after the holidays to speak with the person that installs the plumbing.  I should probably post this as a new topic in this forum.  Might get some help, even though it does not appear to be well attended.
