I'm sure someone will come along with specifics soon but the drain will be very near the tank usually protruding thru the bottom of the coach. It'll have a valve that'll most likely be in a compartment.

Not a silly question because they drain differently from model to model. Mine has a valve right on the tank itself to drain. My tank is under the bed so it is easy to get to. On another trailer I had, I had to crawl up under the trailer to open the drain valve. Either way, it will be somewhere near the tank itself.

It should be in the propane compartment area. It has a valve and a grey screw in plug on the end. Unscrew the plug and open the valve. The Low Point drain for the lines should be there as well. It just has a cap on it. Remove the cap and open a faucet. Even if you choose to use anti-freeze you need to let this line drain totally since water will be in a column from the cap to the lines.

My 350 actually has a sticker on the basement door where the low point drain is located. My water tank and low point drain is behind the passenger rear wheel, no where near the propane tank which is behind the driver's front wheel .

Look for lines hanging down from one of the basement compartments. Each model is likely different.

See, you learn all kinds of neat stuff here. I assumed, oh no used that word, that all the propane tanks were in the same general location on all the Georgetowns and the water tank drain would be in the same place as mine.

Revision: If you own a Georgetown 370XL the fresh water tank drain as well as the water line low point drain are in the same compartment as the propane tank. Second compartment to the left of the entrance door. Otherwise, it could be somewhere else.

This is very interesting that these georgetowns models are so different

what is more interesting is that other 350 series motorhomes vary

I own a 2009 350dsse and my low point drain is in my propane compartment not like the other 350 posted

Very Interesting

Schwing, Do you have the single piece windshield like mine? There are some 2009s out there that are the older body style and split windscreen. There might have been some functional changes with the later 2009s which have a different body style.

/edit Just noticed you had a "350DS SE". That is the older 2008 SE body style with dual slides. The newer 2009 body style 350TS only has 3 slides and many of the XL features like full basement doors so I'm not surprised they are different. They no longer have SE and XL lines in the Georgetown series.

yes mine was on of the first 2009 out with the split windshield

Because yours is the newer body style, that must be why the change in location for the drain
