A dumb question re:378TS

Hi all,
I want to drain the water tank as it is the same water from when the dealer filled it. I found a about a 1" pvc threaded plug in the piping under the tank, however even our old 5th had a ball valve to drain.

Thanks for any info as I am still in the learn as you go phase, but I reckon I will always be in that phase........

Happy adventures,
Barney

barlin44: you always has the option to install a drain valve instead of the drain plug. Avaliable at home depot for aprx 6$.

Thanks,
Yes that is no problem installing a valve, just making sure the plug was in fact the drain as there are several ball valves in the area.
Thanks for your input,
Barney

I have a low point drain, and a tank drain, both on the right side of the propane compartment, sticking out the bottom. both have a ball valve, and the tank drain also has a screw on cap.

Thats where our drain plug for the low point and tank drain is too on our 08 378. The winter siphon hose and valve is located behind a partition above the propane tank.
