I'm at the RV park in junction, tx, and stil not finding the drain valves. Guess since when I Winterized it, I never opened up any valves that would drain the system. I am guessing that I just bypassed the water heater, and added the antifreeze "over the top." Filling all of then various connecting lines by pushing the fresh water out with antifreeze. Guess that works. When I get back to Canyon I will go by the dealer and say, let's chat. And then I will report back.

Since FR monitors these threads, maybe they will pop in and save a lot of time and guessing? You've posted your model, should be a walk in the park for them to help, ya think?

There ya go. Hope I didn't offend the guys on the line with my crack about moving the valve location, every week. : - ). Maybe I could ask them. They probably know where, and why and which engineer designed it that way. Oops! There goes an engineer joke:0)

Bilby05, perhaps posting a new topic under the Rockwood TT forum would get you more viewers with that model! This topic is too general!
Plus have you done a search like Rockwood drain to see if other have already posted the topic with a solution?

That actually doesn't work because you have to get all the water out of the lines, but I sure hope you lucked out on it!

Joshua Cavitt can you help on low point drain location here? The unit here is a 2007 Rockwood Ultra Lite 2304S.

Bilby05 - have you gotten down on your back and looked underneath? That's how I found mine, using a roller-creeper (the next alternative being a flattened cardboard box to lie on and roll around). There's a lot of interesting stuff under there - take a good flashlight!

Yeah, you're going to find them. Then you're going to be really mad at how "obvious" it was - or at how extremely hidden it was. There is no middle ground!

They were hiding under the bathtub. They did not look like I expected. The panel on the side of the tub comes off with 4 square drive headed screws. To see them you have to lay on the hall/kitchen floor with your head between the toilet and the tub and shine a flashlight under there. I thought they would be "valves" you know with handles of some sort. But they look like large black plastic bolts sticking up perpendicular to the red and blue pex. I'll try to attach a photo.
Thanks to all who provided hints to solve the puzzle. bill b.
