Tankless water heater

I have a 2018 which has a 'tankless' water heater. But when I brought it back to the dealer for first time winterization so I could learn how, the young acrobat twisted himself in through the back to 'drain' and 'bypass' the tankless' heater. But if it is tankless, why does it need to be drained and bypassed?

Because you still have water in the lines... tankless does not mean waterless

But why not just blow out the lines with an air compressor?

To drain it, yes, air should work... that is how I was planning on draining it when the time came for me to do that.

In additon to blowing out the lines....I suspect there is a small heat exchanger that needs to be blown out or drained as well
