Thanks

Provided you camper has valves, they would likely be just above wherever the hoses come out the bottom. May have to remove an access panel. Most low point drains just have caps on the hoses that you take off and let drain.

I have not found any low point drains yet. I believe the two blue lines by the fresh water tank drain are the overflow and an air relief for the fresh water tank. The reason I think this is because when you fill the tank you can hear air coming out of them and then water pours out of them when the tank is full. If you find the drains please post a picture of them, I will do the same.

Mine are near the driver side rear of the trailer. There is a sticker on the trailer saying low point drains. Mine are up underneath the skirt and not visible from the side. There are 2 drain tunes with caps on them. There is also a drain valve for your freak water tank. Also indicated with a sticker.

On my 315BHK the low point drains are located about two feet forward from the outside kitchen down by the frame. A red and a blue line with caps you remove to drain the lines.

Low Point Drain Shut-Off Valves

zexel

I have a similar setup, just 2 screw-on caps on my low point drain hoses. Has anyone added shutoff valves? I am trying to find some that just screw onto the drain hoses and then use the existing caps at the bottom of the valves to seal the openings. I haven't been able to find any of that type on any website (the ones I find are either clamp-on, angled, or the wrong size). My idea is similar to the ones on the picture, except that the valves should be at the ends of the hoses w/o extensions. I have checked several RV websites and Amazon, but no luck so far!

Being that the drain lines are PEX , you could just use Sharkbite type valves. Can be found at any hardware store.

It should be 1/2" MPT on the tubes. Fpt ball valves and 1/2 PVC plugs... Or a MxF valve....or cut the line and put a pex style(of your connection choice) on the line.
