They are "Low Point Drains" to drain the water out of the lines when winterizing.

If you mean the fresh water tank; then no.
Look for a "petcock" under the camper connected by a hose to the bottom of the fresh water tank.

Your water tank would have a seperate drain. Usually right near the tank itself.

Herk: you must have put some wood reinforcement around your water tank as I can see on your photo?

Came stock with the plywood under the water tank. For the most part whoever built my 5th wheel did a pretty good job. While wires were run "helter skelter" they were at least loom'ed up with zip ties. Made trouble shooting some power problems a PITA, but they at least don't rub on anything.

My fresh water tank has a drain with a cap like the low point drains in your pic above. But it is separate as you said.
