Low point drains

So I have a brand-new 2013 Cedarcreek 36CKTS. I see where the low point drain is but I don't see any valves to open them up. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing here?

Thanks
Greg

Mine just have caps on them. Just unscrew them and let the water out. then if they do not have a rubber gasket in them, Teflon tape them.

Ditto

I'm assuming the OP means the Red and Blue low point drain lines.

Look in the RH basement behind the sliding panel, there are two valves there ( hot n cold)

Click on this link 2010 Cedar Creek 36RE outside water lines and then scroll down to post number 7 to see the photos I posted of where the low point drain valves are hidden.

They should have caps on them. I pulled my caps off and used a 1/2" pvc valve to replace the caps.

No caps on Cedar Creek models, there are actual open/close valves on the lines in the basement area.

The drain for my fresh water tank is like that, good thing the water is low volume.

They have just installed 2 shut off valves in my basement for the low point drains. If you get into cold weather as I did in Pensacola Fl. a couple of weeks ago they both froze and caused a leak. That is the weak point of the whole system. I hope I hit all the right keys this time Weezer?.......
