Fresh water drain valve location

We have a Lexington 283 and the previous owners never had the need to winterize the RV. The plumbing schematic does not show detailed locations of the fresh water tank and low point drains.
I would appreciate the help knowing the location if the tank and drain valve. Thank you in advance. George

The low point drian should have a sticker on the side of the coach. If not look under the TT and you should be able to find both of the hot and cold low point drains. Most are PEX lines and will have a grey cap on the ends. Just unscrew the cap and open the faucet in the TT to vent out the system.

our RV fresh water tank and associated drain valve is what I am needing to find on our Lexington 283. Crawling on my back we have seen the grey and black water tanks. The gas tank is in the middle supported by heavy duty brackets. We will keep looking.

Your drain valve may be in the docking station.
One of the side doors should have valve inside.
