Potable Water Drain

Just bought a 99 Forest River 310. I have been cleaning the waste tanks and have come to sanitizing the fresh water. I couldnt at first find out how to get the bleach in the tank so I emptied the hose of water and put the bleach in the hose hooked it up and forced it in that way. I then opened the taps until I could smell bleach which happened fairly quickly but it now smells really bad as well as bleach. Thinking I should let that sit for 24 hrs and drain it out and maybe do that a couple of times. When I went back to drain it I can't seem to find the water tank drain. I see the overflow at the back left by the frame but I"m lost on where the fresh water drain is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Jim

Our fresh water drain is on the opposite side, right underneath our slide out.

Turns out it was under the bed but behind a small fake wall. The smell out of the potable water tank was disgusting not mention when I flushed the hotwater heater. All done with bleach and the water is clear instead of black. It does still have the smell of bleach but hopefully that won't kill us...?
