2003 T-2475 Filling hot water Tank.

Hi all, I recently purchased a 2003 T-2475. I have water coming in with a hose hookup, and I have filled the fresh water tank. I cannot find the bypass valve anywhere to fill the hot water tank. The propane comes on and I have water coming from the hot water faucet, but it doesn't get hot. If I take the drain plug off the water heater, nothing comes out. I assume I need to find the bypass valve somewhere. The fresh tank is located under the fridge and goes to, what I assume is the water pump. The tank in is the rear of the camper where the propane lights it. Thank you for your help.

Another question....what is the purpose of the pump button on the monitor panel? Does that need to be on when using hot water? Thanks again for the help.

Yes, I found the valves and the tank is full and turned the switch on. But, I'm not sure what the purpose of the "pump" button on the monitor panel is used for.

Ah, okay. Thank you again. I am hooked up to water, so I don't need to use that. I used the shower this morning, I showered as quickly as possible, but ran out of hot water at the end. I just wasn't sure if I needed the pump on. I guess I don't. lol Thank you for answering my questions so quickly. I'm a newbie at all this camper stuff. I camped my entire life, but only in a pop up or tent with no utilities.

I have 2003 but a different model. My bypass valve is under the refrigerator behind a floor level cabinet door.
