Fresh water tank drain

Have a new [to me] 08 Georgetown 338s now parked in my driveway. Going over the water systems and can not find the valve for draining the on-board fresh water tank. Any help greatly appreciated....Bob

I dont know about yours but our FR is just a plastic plug behind the rear wheel along side the over flow.. I removed the plug and installed a hand valve for ease of emptying.. You just have to get on your back and crawl around underneath the beast till you see it

I have a different model but mine is located at the low point hot and cold water drain lines.
My tank drain has a black plastic screw on cap only. No valve.

Well I took off the black cap and put a hand valve so it is much easier to drain the tank since we dont leave water in our tank between trips.. Much easier to turn valve.. I still have to remove caps on low point drains when winterizing.. Just a upgrade that is handy
