Fell head over for the '12, 32' Mountaineer, but just wasn't ready for the cost! So, we found on '06 with just about the same floor plan and now, as the other Chief calls it....THE GOAT LOCKER is ours!
If only someone would tell him where the bypass valve is on that dang water heater, he will stop grumbling all the way to the bathhouse!
The bypass should be on the bottom feed for the water heater. It should be a "T" valve. The bottom is cold feed and the top is hot out. Note the top probably also has a check valve that can fail and block hot water flow.
Good luck and congratulations.
Cbay, I noticed the picture in your signature isn't working. I think if you put a slash "/" just in front of the last "img" it should work. Without the quotes. Like this -- /img but with the brackets around it.
