3011ds fresh tank drain valve

Does anyone with a 3011ds have a picture of their drain valve and low point drain tubes? I think i have some missing.
Did one night dry camp Monday and had no water in the tank tho I ran water hose in it for 10 minutes before leaving home.
Looked underneath and I have no cap on cold water low point drain. Not even a fitting to screw one in to. And looks like tank valve is gone too.
Would like to see picture of what it should look like.
Crazy thing is, I spent several nights hooked up to City water a few months ago and had plenty water and no drips underneath.Click image for larger version

The shut off valve should be in the compartment above it with the water pump and water filter.

The blue line is the fresh water tank drain and is opened with a valve that will be in the RV's water bay. The red line is the one and only low point drain. It is designed to be used when the water heater is in bypass mode and the hot and cold water lines are connected. It has a cap and no valve.

Ok. I'll look under the bed where fresh tank is.

Well that explains the missing cap. Thanks. Now I'll have to figure out why fresh tank stopped taking water through outside inlet.

Ok. I've looked under the bed. No valve anywhere. Can someone show me a picture of that on a 2018 3011ds?

Even though we have a 3051s we also have the same tubes under the RV. It does drip after I have filled the tank up. Our low point drain valve is in the closet.
