Low point drains

The temperature here was predicted to drop below freezing, so I decided to drain my A122S. The low point drain valves, under the driver's side dinette seat just turn endlessly in both directions. No water under the trailer. I thought maybe the valve handle needed to be lined up with the water line to drain. Nothing. I tried everything I could think of and no water drained out. Do the valves pull out, push in, do the hokey-pokey? Anyone with an A-frame know?

Can you post a picture of the valve? I would also be concerned with water left in the pipe/tubing (to and from the pump). Can you blow the lines clear with low pressure air? Have you winterized before?

When closing them, you may need to give an extra firm push to assure they reseat well. If they don't reseat the symptom will be a slow dripping near the tire and occasional pump cycling.

Low point drains

Thanks All! I figured it had to be something simple. I pulled on the handles and they drained. The thing is, over the years, I've winterized quite a number of campers, but this is the first in which I've seen drain handles that pull rather than twist to open and close.
