Welcome to the forum. Open up your water bay, on the passenger side, and you will see a valve in the back that may be hidden by the black metal cover. That valve drains your fresh water tank. Opening a faucet will act as a vacuum breaker and let the water drain quicker...

I've never heard that...

I would think that all the drains in the sinks and shower would be more than enough!

One of those weird things I learned from a RV tech during a PDI a couple RV's back. Sometimes my fresh tank starts draining instantly other times I have to open a faucet to get a decent flow. Since all the drains are on the grey tank system that might be the reason.

Drains in the sinks and showers are connected to gray/galley waste tanks. This OP is trying to drain the fresh water tank - not connected to gray/galley tanks.

X2

The fresh water tank vent should be enough, but sometimes it is not. Opening a faucet helps to vent it.

How would the DRAINS help drain the FRESH WATER TANK?

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Sorry...

I must have misread the OP...

That being said, I've never had better drain flow with the faucets open.

But I do open the cap on the fresh tank fill connection.

THAT is all you really need to do.

We have a 2016 Sunseeker 2430 GTS.

Our fresh water drain is under the bed. Not very convenient!

Our bathroom sink drains into our BLACK water tank.

I have a 2017 Sunseeker CDWS 2650. The freshwater tank is under the bed. The drain valve is on the very left side of that compartment at the very back way down at the bottom.
