  • RV Water Heater Bypass Hose Lengths For Winterization
    I reached out to my contact at Camco and they only make the 8 inch and 12 inch hoses. Valterra is the other manufacturer we carry that has those bypass hoses and they are 8-1/2 inches end to end or 12-13/4 inches according to my contact at Valterra. These are the more standard sizes for the 6 gallon and 10 gallon water heaters. I recommend going with the 12 inch hose found in the Camco RV Winterization Bypass Kit w/ 12" Hose # CAM35963 as that extra length will not be an issue when bypassing...

  • RV Winterization Quick-Turn Water Heater Bypass Kit Recommendation
    I spoke with my contact over at Camco and he was very adamant about removing the PVC and using brass fittings that come in one of the kits: # CAM35953 for a 6 gallon water heater or # CAM35963 for a 10 gallon. Apparently the PVC ones do not hold up well.

  • Parts Needed For Installing Water Heater Bypass Valve On PEX Tubing In A Camper
    Currently we do not have a video showing the installation process for the 3-Way RV Water Heater Bypass Valve # 37262255 on PEX tubing. Typically this part is used as a replacement part for the bypass that either already came in your Camper or if the bypass on the Camco RV Winterization Quick-Turn Water Heater Bypass Kit # CAM35983 became damaged. With the Camco kit you get everything to detach the inlet lines on the back of the water heater and install the bypass kit. Most factory set...

  • Valve Thread Size for Camco RV Winterization Bypass Kit # CAM35983
    The 3-Way valve included with the Camco RV Winterization Quick-Turn Water Heater Bypass Kit # CAM35983 is 1/2" NPT for all 3 ports. We do not have a 3-Way valve like this available with a 3/4" thread. I have attached a short video review on this kit that you can check out as well.

  • Installation Process for Camco RV Winterization Quick-Turn Water Heater Bypass Kit
    I would be happy to help you figure out the installation of the # CAM35983. The 3-way bypass valve connects to the blue hose, which will be your cold water. It will also connect to the nylon hose from the kit as well as the hot water heater. When the 3-way valve is open, cold water will flow into your water heater as usual. When you switch it to bypass, it will direct the water through the included nylon hose. From there, you will connect the backflow preventer to the other connection...
