Can't get all the water out

I followed all the recommendations suggested by Prime Time and all went well until I turned on my pump and could still hear water bubbling in the fresh water tank. I had opened the low point drain and let it run till it stopped and then turned on the pump to remove what little bit of water that was in the line from the tank to the pump and could hear water bubbling like it was too low for the pump to pick up but still had some in there.

I have a 2900BHS, my water tank is in the rear but my low point drain is in the front of the trailer. I raised and lowered the tongue to get the remaining water but nothing came out the low point drain.

It's such a long run from the rear to the front and Iím not sure if the drain line is not rising and falling around other things in the bottom of the trailer.

Assuming that he Fresh tank was drained dry...Whne I open my low point drains, I always open the H&C water taps thoughout the trailer to ensure to allow trapped air to vent.

gimp - maybe this will help - your fresh water tank is actually in the front under your convenience center. On your model the water pump is back in the rear by your water heater.

Even though we put the suction line as low as we can, you will normally not be able to suck all the water out with the water pump. However, the fresh tank drain is on the bottom of the tank and should allow you to get most all of it out. I'm pretty sure it drains right under your convenience center (or close to that point).
