Hot Water Heater By-Pass Valve Stuck

We are in the process of de-winterizing our 2012 20ft. Flying Cloud...finally! I went to switch the by-pass valve from the "By-Pass" position to the "In-Use" position. It won't budge. I don't want to crank on it as I am not even too sure which way to turn the valve. Any tips on how to get this thing to move? Which direction to turn it?

I beliee it's a 1/4 turn ball valve. If it's brass you can really push on it. Plastic not so much. The handle should have a stop on it that you can see that will give you an indication of directional turn.

Typically if the handle is facing right it will turn down.

Thank you for the advice. We finally got it into the in-use position.
