Fresh Water Tank on 2011 GT 378

Is there a way to drain the fresh water tank? I got a lot of calcium when I was in FL last year and the line to the toilet is always getting clogged with the calcium deposits. This year before I go back I want to find a filter that connects between the hose and the water source.

On ours the tank is back on the left side second door from the end, the low point drain is right below that.

It would be nice to find a filter that would work on the hot water heater outlet which is where most of the crud comes from.

I believe your low point drain and fresh water holding tank drains are together along with the fresh water overflow drain. The low point and fresh water drains should have caps installed. Remove the caps and both will drain.

I have a portable water softener and it works well on the hard water.

Yes you can drain the fresh water tank.
Find you low point drain and open it.
