Don't disagree with what you were told, but I can not believe anyone would build an RV today without a FW drain. Especially if you found the line hanging through the bottom of the RV??

Do you have a water filter? I would think the valve would be there. If there is a blue hose hanging down next to the red one underneath, there's a valve somewhere! Where's your water pump?

Brochure says you have a water filter. It will be with that and the water pump. Listen and find the pump. Where do the red and blue lines under the MH come out, pass, middle or driver's side and how far back?
In the photo, have you looked up under the white board and up in the corners?

I have to agree with Flybob, there has to be a FW drain somewhere. Will be interesting to see where it is on your unit when you find it.

Sagecoachdriver: The photo you posted is like our unit. As you suggested, I looked up under the white board and there is no valve there. Looking to the upper left with a flash light I can see the blue hose coming out of the bottom of the FW tank and there is no valve there. So I have followed the blue hose coming out of the tank to the end under the unit and haven't found a valve. Interesting, if the blue hose is connected to the tank what keeps the water from draining?

Where is the water pump/ filter? You've walked around the entire bed looking for a trap door? Why haven't some of the other MTS Forester owner chimed in. Please, when you do find it, post where it is. This is crazy!

From your description of the where the blue pipe goes, that must be it in the photo! Then behind the plate to the left of the valve will have your winterizing tube and valves. Under the vanity should be your water pump and filter.

Sagecoachdriver - On the back side of the bed is a white 4-5 in screw off opening. That opens to the side of the FW tank. There is a blue pipe running from the drivers side. There is a valve on it. I take this pipe to be the city water hook up because is has nothing to do with the tank. In your photo the valve you have circled is the winterizing valve. It is part of the water system under the shower. Open a panel under the shower and there is the water pump and the hose to draw the pink stuff through the pump. The water filter is under the sink. From where are you getting the photos?

Is that valve in photo just a 2 position or could it be a 3 position? I would think the valve should be somewhere by the water pump and winterizing. It's crazy!!!
