Draining fresh water tank

Is there another way to drain fresh water tank besides running faucet?

Doubt if it is on the bottom, but it will be on the side of the tank near the bottom.

Ours is on the bottom near the edge on the drain side of camper.

We purchased a 2005 Ultralite 2601 a few weeks ago. I sanitized the freshwater system but noticed that the drain position for the tank doesn't let all the water out, but still holds 2 or 3 gallons at least. Any way to drain this completely?

Great forum BTW, I've learned a lot already just lurking.

Just have to park it with that corner on the low side.

Lightbulb just went on. I put new tires on using my homemade wood "stack jack" that I drive one of the wheels up on. I could just do that on the drivers side, which should elevate the TT enough to empty most all of the water.

Got the idea for the wooden jack from this forum. When we drove the TT home from the seller's place, we had a blowout on I-40 through Knoxville. Not fun. I had brought 2 hydraulic jacks with me as I always do. It paid off big time in this instance. Still a pain to change the tire. The wood block setup works GREAT. IF you haven't made one yet, do it. You won't regret it. Apparently, tire blowouts are pretty prevalent with the China Bombs. We've had Coleman popups the last 15 years and never had an issue. Go figure.

Look for low drain decal on the side of the coach. Mine are located at the rear passenger side. Look under the coach and you may see two drain lines with plugs. I
