I feel stupid asking this question but here it goes. I have a 2010 379TS and I cannot find my lowpoint drain for the fresh water tank. I do know that I have had NO problem with water siphoning out of my tank while on the road so maybe FR has addressed this long-standing problem. I checked the propane tank compartment but NO luck. It is amazing how much stuff is NOT in the manual they give with the unit. This is our first RV so we are really wandering around in the dark. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Usually there is a sticker on the outside of the coach in the area where the drain is. If not look under the coach for any plumbing line with a valve on it. I'm not familiar with the 379. You could email Mike Burns at FR if you can't find it.

OK... I found the lowpoint drain! But when I removed the cap and opened the valve, some water came out but not much. All of my faucets in the coach were open but the panel is still showing fresh water at 2/3 full. Am I missing something here?

On ours there are two drains in the same place. One is for the plumbing the other to drain the water tank. Look for another drain somewhere nearby.

My fresh water tank has a drain with a valve and a grey screw in plug below the valve. If yours is the same just unscrew the plug and open the valve. I drained mine yesterday and left the valve open. I went out to get gas and had a trail behind me from the water that didn't drain while parked at home.
The valve is, in my case, next to the low point drain as well as the fresh water tank vent. These are all contained in the propane tank compartment.

There are 3 lines all bunched together. One is larger and has a screen taped to it that I assume is the vent line. The other two are smaller with one just having a cap and the other has a valve and a grey cap. I assumed the one with the valve was the drain but as I mentioned only a small quantity of water came out. I removed the cap from the other line and found the drain! I don't know what the other line is that has the valve on it. Apparently it is the line downstream from the pump and I simply de-pressurized the system when I opened the valve. That is just a guess. Thanks for your help!

My info was bass-ackwards. The valved line is the low point drain from the water from the pump and the one with the cap is from the water tank. Check the screen to be sure it is not blocked as well. Mine had a bunch of junk in there.

i just check and try to drain down and no drain taps anywhere, had to blow the line out with air, had to run pump to clear tank, Could not find and drain values anywere.
Mike at Forest river advised that it drains via the water heather, but the drain value on the water heater ish rusty as hell?
