Draining Fresh Water Tank

I cannot find a drain for the fresh water tank in my 2012Sunseeker 2250S. The only drain hoses I see are under the kitchen sink which would drain the lines but not necessarily the tanks (unless I suppose the pump is turned on). Is there a hidden drain behind one of the panels?

Turbo, That's where I thought it would be but my diligent searching found nothing coming out underneath the tank.???

My drain is almost directly under the tank. It exits just above the right side rear axle. Shut off is located in line next to the water filter. Have to remove water filter access panel to get to the filter and shut off. Good luck.

My valve is inside our Sunseeker about a foot away from the tank. It's buried under a bunch of wires and other hoses, I need to take the time to relocate it! Not sure where your tank is located on your unit, mine is under the bed.

On my 2011 Sunseeker 2300, the water drained from the fresh water tank exits through a short blue plastic pipe that extends from the bottom of the motor home and is located under the water pump compartment. The pipe is fitted with a screw on cap that must be removed when draining the tank. The valve that controls the drain is located in the pump compartment. As already noted, the door to the pump compartment must be removed to access the valve. On my unit, the pump compartment is located on the back wall of the outside storage compartment nearest the rear axle on the passenger side.

Thanks to all who replied. You gave me enough clues to navigate around the 2250S. 2012 is the first year for this model, so FR did a lot of engineering/re-engineering on the fly. Removing all panels did not show me anything but the tank, pump, and Hotwater heater. HOWEVER, for other 2250 owners, removing the drawer above the heater vent next to the bed allows you to snake a hand behind the H2O tank and feel the valve. Blindly opening/closing it does the trick!
