2011 Georgetown 300s - Fresh Water Tank

I recently purchased a 2011 Georgetown 300S.

When I purchased the motorhome the dealer filled up the freshwater tank and I would like to empty most of the water out. I have not been able to locate the drain valve for the freshwater tank and none of the manuals show where the valve is located . Can anyone point me in the right directions?

Look under for a pex line sticking down with a valve attached. Once you know where the water tank is located it should be close by.

I went out and look everywhere underneath and could not find any pex line sticking down anywhere. :-(

Yes FR makes a decent product for their price point, but seriously doubt they have many systems engineers on staff and defiantly have no one to produce technical manuals/documentation.

Guessing that my 270S would have a similar design. Try looking up behind the rear axle on the passengers side for three hoses sticking down. The two capped ones are the low point drains and the open one is the fresh tank overflow. Hope this helps.

FYI - Be prepared to get a shower when you unscrew those drain caps

Just curious. Where is your holding tank drain located?

Holding tank drain valves and connection point are mid-coach on drivers side.

bubbles: That's the low point drains (by rear axle) mentioned above. One is for the fresh water tank and the other is supposedly for the hot water side.

FYI - These low point drains will not drain the water heater. Still need to drain it at the tank.

Thank you everyone for you input.

I finally found the low point drain for my fresh water where JTseed suggested. "Try looking up behind the rear axle on the passengers side for three hoses sticking down. The two capped ones are the low point drains and the open one is the fresh tank overflow. Hope this helps." I was able to trace one of the drains to the fresh water tank. :-)

I also found a 2nd set of low point drains a little further back. Will have to try and see where they go. Another adventure another day.

Thanks for all of your help. :-)
