    Purchased 2006 Fleetwood Jamboree 26 ft this winter.  It came with some literature ("Owner's manual",...) that is supposed to help me but...

    Winter turns to spring and my job is to dewinterize the RV as the previous owner had winterized things with pink solution.  I dutifully watched 10 Youtube videos about dewinterizing RVs.  They all start with "remove the bypass of the hot water tank."  You guessed it.  After hours of searching, I cannot find the hot water tank.  I find a couple of  2-wqy valves, but nothing that would be a bypass organization like the one I installed for my whole house filter system.

    ===> Does anyone know where the hot water tank and bypass valves are located on the 2006 Fleetwood Jamboree 26E?

    ===> Alternatively, does anyone know of a useful manual for this RV?

    Most valves I have seen are on the water supply lines leading to the water heater. Most people when winterizing would drain the water from the water heater. So no "Pink" in your water heater tank.  Your system needs to be flushed and then open the bypass valve to put water in your hot water tank.
