The valve conversion can be made anywhere on the coach, maybe move both externally and skip the bed routine. Too bad westATL is out of reach. I would do the mod for parts and a ribeye from Texas Roadhouse...

I like what you did. My cold water/fresh water tank line already has a valve by my hot water line just has the cap. Does seem strange that an RV made for colder weather would have that pipe exposed with water in it. I don't have any cold weather trips planned this year, but will be interested in doing that mod sometime.

update to my original post

I was checking out my new propane tank when I accidentally noticed what appears to be red and blue drain lines forward of the propane tank but rear of the coach door. The lines are visible through the propane compartment. It looks like thee are caps on the bottom of these lines. see photos.

After the dealer winterized my 2013 2250 SLE, on the way home I noticed a stream of water pouring out of the vehicle forward of the dump pipe, under the slide out. later I opened up an access doorway in the left rear compartment and saw another blue line with a valve that was left open. The dealer said they leave this open on purpose.

I am thinking this is another fresh water drain and the others are to drain the water that is already in the water lines. See photos.

Hope these photos show up.

Comments are welcome to confirm what I said or to correct my conclusions.

Sorry again, the two photos of the propane compartment are not posting correctly.

Maybe I should go to bed.

The one they said they leave open on purpose was most likely the fresh water tank drain. It would be odd if they didn't drain it all out on site, but some residual water on the bottom of the tank that wouldn't come out sitting still would come out as the unit is jostled about while driving. You should check it out and make sure you know what it is - you will need to know this for the future. (Come spring or if it's not freezing there yet, an easy test is add a couple of gallons through the fresh water fill port and it should run right out that tube when the valve is open. But if you do that before spring, be sure to drive around again with the valve open to drain it all out. PS: If it doesn't run right out that tube, be sure to find the drain valve and drain it!)

Yeah, they said they never let the fresh water drain at the dealership.

I was hesitant to put some water in the tank but I probably should. It has been dropping below freezing here for the past week but it warms up in daylight.

I have to ask!

Who said that?
