Where’s the mixing valve?

2000 Safari twin. After looking around the forums. I think I need to clean or replace my mixing valve. I have all the original schematics. I have good access to the WH from inside under the bed. Can anyone help me find where the mixing valve is? Schematic attached

hot water mixing valve

You do not have a mixing valve. If you did it would be where the hot water leaves the tank and where bypass cold water comes in from the cold line. In this style of plumbing there is just one valve to shut or opened to bypass the hot water tank or to use the tank. Your picture and schematic show three valves to bypass and no mixing valve. To bypass you have to shut the red line (hot) and white line (cold) valve and open the valve where the line switches from white to red (the bypass valve). This forces cold water to not enter the tank and go to the hot side, but as cold water. In hot water mode, the three valves are the opposite. If any one of these valves is will not get hot water or it will be warm at best. Check the valves.
Safe travels.
