2010 Cedar Creek 36RE outside water lines

First winter with this rv. How many outside water lines do I need to drain and where are they? All I am finding is one blue line by the rear wheel on the right side of the trailer.

I'm looking for a tank drain and a hot and cold line to drain under the camper.

Thank you!!!

You will need to remove the anode or a plug from the water heater depending on brand.
The blue line sounds like a low point drain, does it have a valve or a cap on the line?

Yes, I agree with the water heater and that the blue line is a low point drain. I was thinking there would be more than just this one low point drain.

Thanks.

Your low point drains are behind the sliding panel in the pass through on the Door Side. The "other" drains are under the slide on the ODS (left) behind the the rear wheel. There is a Fresh tank drain and a low point drain along with the ice maker valve if you have one.

I like that our Silverback has low point drains that are easily accessed and has valves you can open and close easily. On our old Wildcat I darn near had to crawl under our trailer to open the low point drains.
