Low point drains/fresh water drain left open?

I was planning on winterizing my rig this weekend and was going over my notes to refresh my memory. In my notes I have, "Open low point drains." I also have "Close low point drains."

Does anyone leave these drains open all winter? Is there any risk to leaving them (including the fresh water drain) open or closed? I have the blue/red low point drains.

Thanks.

Only reason you may want to close them would be little critters climbing aboard !

Iím guessing you only blow out the water lines and donít pump antifreeze into them. The main reason for closing the low point drains would be to keep the antifreeze from draining out.

Leaving the fresh water drain open wonít hurt anything other that giving an insect a place to winter.

Not sure about a 2000 but our 2011 Bhss has them just to the right of the GW/BW drain outlet, tucked up short just sticking out of a ball of spray foam. Red and blue lines with caps on them. Had trouble finding them myself!
