Low point drains

I have a Class C 2016 Forest River Forester 3171DS. Can anyone tell me where the low point drains are located? Thanks.

I assume youíre needing that info prior to winterizing. Good start here:

Winterizing

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

No need to winterize. Looking for the low point drain.

I am new but I found the low water point drains (blue and red hoses) almost directly under but toward the edge of my fresh water tank (they are hanging down), the valve by the water pump drains the freshwater tank through the blue hose and then I go under and unscrew the cap on the red hose to drain the water lines etc. My 2018 2501TS includes a pickup tube and valve for the antifreeze to the water pump.


Emm-dee and any other "veteran" please correct anything wrong in what I have stated. Bad info is much worse than no info.

Again, I am brand new and the above is based on my hands on finding the hoses and valves with much help from this site. The winterize thread has pictures of the low point drain hoses.

You are correct. I added a quick drain to my Forester which keeps me from having to empty the storage compartment in order to access the drain valve.

That is correct. The blue line should be for your fresh water holding tank drain. There should be a quarter turn valve in the pump compartment to drain. The red and only low point drain has a cap on it. The line is red to remind you it will only drain both hot and cold water lines when the water heater is in bypass mode.
