Fiesta Vee 330 Water Heater

Hello.. I have a 98 Fiesta Vee 330 and have no idea how to access my water heater. The water heater is located port side aft cabin behind a wall with no access. This is the oddest setup i have seen on my boat. My A/C is located in front of my water heater and has a velcro strip on my seat cushion that pulls off for easy access, but my water heater is behind my A/C with no access. Has anyone had this problem before ? If so, what do I need to do to gain access. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Marty

    Do you need to replace it? Not a big deal to pull out the A C unit to replace the water heater.   How often do you need to access the water heater? Plenty of room for normal winterizing.   ??

    I do not need to replace it. NO room for winterzing.

    Really? I simply reach back open the drain valve and open the air release    Easy to drain    The 330 and 340 are the same design.

    Yes, draining is easy but how do you run antifreeze through your lines ? It is a 6 gallon water heater.

    I didn't know my water heater was behind my AC.  Good to know @Alswagg.

    It's best to put a bypass valve on it.  Then you just leave it drained for the winter without any antifreeze in it.

    That's what I am having trouble with. I cant get to the water heater to put a bypass valve on it because i cant reach it due to it being behind my aft seating area with no access.
