Fresh water tank drain

I have a 2014 Prime Time Crusader 260RLD. My question is there a main drain on the fresh water tank so as I am done and leaving the camp grounds I can easily dump the tank so I am not towing any extra weight?

Should have three low point drains. One hot, one cold, and one fresh water tank. That's how mine is

The FW tank will have a drain. Usually it comes with a cap or plug of some kind or a valve. Most of us who got the cap/plug replace it with a valve to make draining easier. Here's a link to a posting with a pic of one with the valve. You can get the valve at any RV store.

How to drain the fresh water tank?

Here's the valve I installed:

Be careful as I did that and got pulled over in South Carolina. They told me it was not legal even though it was H20.

I still do it though

We carry fresh h2o always. It's there for potty breaks, hand washing at lunchtime, etc.

Are you saying that they pulled you over because you had a valve instead of a cap??

I was heading north returing from Florida into freezing weather (Polar Vortex) and as I left the campground in SC, opened hot water and fresh water low point drain valves. As I was driving down the interstate, got pulled over because they wanted to let me know that my RV was leaking. I told them that I was draining fresh water form my tanks. No ticket or anything just a warning that I can't do that.

Oh ok that makes a little more sense. I know it's state law that you can't run your gray or black water on the ground but that's it. Cop prob didn't understand it was just fresh water. Oh well
