We, too, have a 2016 319DS, and were unable to find the freshwater tank drain. During the inspection, we were told it was by our pull out table and sink (side compartment option), and I should have had the man show us, since it is NOT there, or I am blind. I have called the selling dealer several times, and each time has been a blind alley.

Was just told now that it's near the pump, under the bed, where the freshwater tank is located. I have my doubts, but will have a look.

Have you found or learned otherwise? Thanks for your help.

When my 5th wheel was new i opened the fresh water tank drain while i was finishing up breaking camp. Get in and left. On I-5 heading home and had the State patrol pull me over, he walked up to the window and said your trailer is leaking something and it better just be water, I played dumb as there was a paper tag still in the window. lesson learned.

Common sense would say that the fresh water drain valve would be near the tank, every rv is different and i have seen the valve inside with the line thru the floor to drain on the ground. Under the bed near the tank is a good place for it.

I've been doing the camper/travel trailer thing for 35+ years, but this motorhome has me stumped with the drain plug location! The only way I have found to drain most of the tank is to run the water pump and open the faucets so that the water drains into the grey tank (which then needs to be emptied). There has got to be a faster way! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Try under the shower door by removing 2 screws and black panel.

Thank you for your information on where to find the drain for the fresh water tank on the Leprechaun 319DS. (under the shower). I see three hoses (two blue, one red) with little black handles on them. However, when I turn the little handles there is very little resistance and it doesn't feel like anything is happening. Also, no water comes out outside. I have also done this with the faucets open. Under each of the little handles is some kind of metal clip, but I can't imagine that I would want to mess with those? I feel like I'm finally closing in on this. I would appreciate any help you could give.

I have the same 319DS model and although I haven't drained them yet I believe you pull the T handles up to drain; not turn them. Let us know!!

That is correct...just pull the handles up to drain. I just did this today on my 319DSF. The top set of lines there go to the outside kitchen water lines. Thanks to those who helped in this. I should of asked this during my PDI.

On mine, you lift them up to let the water flow, not turn them.
