Low Point Drains - FE 279RLDS


The past summer we bought a FE 279RLDS so this is my first time winterizing it. It's our 4th trailer over the past 20 years so I'm not new to the process. The problem that I'm having is that I can't find the low point drains. Anyone with the 279 know where they are?

low point drains

I have a 2017 297rldsle and the drains are just to the right of the gray and black water tank drain connection. You have to get down and look up at the frame to see them. There is also a sticker on the side of the coach.

I have a different model FE, but mine are just in front of the axles on the black/grey tank drain side. Look for a red and a white plastic pipe with a threaded cap extending below the black belly material just outside the frame on that side. There is also a fresh water drain that is a white plastic pipe in another area (our fresh water tank is at the rear of the TT, but it's a different model so it may vary on yours, but the fresh water should be a single drain pipe). Our fresh water is also inside of the frame rail (further under the TT).
