Hi Terry,

Based on the location of the water heater on the outside, I would believe the by-pass valve is located under your gas range. The wood panel below it should be removable to access.

How to winterize


ok, been a while so lets ee if I can get this all down.

1 - Drain water from your holding tank and remove drain plug in hot water heater. Drain holding tanks ( Waste )
2- turn on bypass for hot water heater ( instruction if needed )
3 - Get yourself some winterizing fluid ( can't remember exact name ) from your local Dealer . 2 or 3 gallons should be good
4- Poor this fluid into your water rez tank. All of it
5 - now go around to EVERY tap in your trailer ( one at a time ) and turn on cold water until water runs pink ( or what ever colour fluid you bought ) Close faucet them do the same for hot water tap. Repeat this at every faucet. Even the ones outside if you have any.
6 Don't forget to flush toilet in water runs pink.
7. Ensure all gas vales have been turned off ( tank vales included )

If you did everything right you should be good to go.

Plz double this list to make sure I covered everything

My hot water isn't working. I'm wondering if it's because the pilot light is out... where is the pilot light so I can check?


You should be able to see the pilot light when it is dark outside. Even when it is not dark outside, you can probably see it if you peer inside, but you should also be able to hear it if you are in a quiet area. You can find the pilot light by looking at the heater and identifying the gas pipes: they are typically a little corroded and have valves on them. Just follow the gas pipe into the murky depths of the heater and look around for the blue flame. Sometimes you'll see a thin-diameter tube branch off and run in tandem with the main pipe: this conveys gas to the pilot light. Finally, you might have to open a little aluminum cover and peer inside. If you don't see a flame, you can probably identify about where it ought to be because you will see the main burners. Of course, the pilot light should be right next to the main burners and if you don't see/hear/feel heat there, your pilot is out.

Need to know steps to winterize a 2001 Thor-Citation 23-R trailer. Or schematics of key points to address.


If you don't have a hot water heater winterizing bypass kit installed,get one before going any further.
Next, drain the water out of the hot water tank. Add POTABLE (not automotive) anti freeze to the water system Run run faucets one at a time both hot and cold, toilet and shower head until you see the anti freeze . Next, shut off the water pump and open the faucets. This saves any chance of cracked water lines. When you want to use the trailer again, close the bypass valves on the hot eater tank and run the pump long enough to remove the antifreeze solution from the system. Fill the water tank and run the faucets for a few minutes. Potable antifreeze won't make you sick so there's no worry if you don't get it all out of the system.

Hot water bypass


On the back side of the water heater you should see a water line connection at the bottom and one at the top. There should also be a water line connecting between the top and bottom lines. The bottom is cold water input and should have a valve. The top is hot water out put and may or may not have a valve, depends if there is a check valve installed. and the connection line between the two will have a valve. If you are wanting to bypass close the top and bottom valve and open the middle valve. If you are wanting to use the water heater, open the top and bottom and close the middle valve. Open the Hot Water on your kitchen sink and wait until you have a steady flow of water before you turn on the water heater.

Where is fresh water drain on tlx200s


There should be three low point drains located under the trailer. Two will be close, side by side, to one another. This is the low point for the entire plumbing system, both cold and hot. There will be another single low point drain which will be for the fresh water tank. The low point drains may only have a cap on them or may have a valve installed.

How do I switch my hot water from propane to electric?


If the water heater is dual fuel (elec/LP) and it is manufactured by Suburban you will need to go outside to the access door of the water heater. Once you have opened the access door to the lower left below and behind the gas valve/burner tube you will see a small black switch labeled on/off. Switch that to on for electric operation. and then you may turn off the LP switch located inside the unit. If it is an Atwood then inside the unit you should have a switch panel with two switches, one for LP and the other for electric. The panel may be by itself or the switches may be located on your tank level monitor panel.

Adjust water temperature


It is possible that there is an open valve on the back of the water heater which is allowing the hot and cold to mix. Locate the back of the water heater. You will see a water line going into the bottom of the water heater. That is cold water in and there will be a valve on that line. It should be open (The handle inline with the direction of the pipe). At the tope there will be another pipe coming out. That is the hot water out. It may or may not have a valve but if it does make sure that it is open. Then there will be a water line connecting the top and bottom water lines and it will have a valve in it. Make sure that the valve in this line is closed. That is a winterizing bypass valve. If this does not correct the problem let me know and I will give you more steps to consider.

How do I add antifreeze to winterize this trailer?


basically you get as much of the water out as possible and add antifreeze to the traps and low points. Getting water out involves pulling the cathode/drain on your hot water tank and changing around the bypass valves so you don't have to fill it with antifreeze. There should be low point drains on the trailer (mine has two) Use only the PINK antifreeze which is safe for potable systems. I would reccomend a search on youtube as there are several good videos. Also you may want to pay an RV dealer to do this and watch first time. Once you know what to do it is pretty simple.
