28DS Water Tank Drain

I have a 2017 28DS that I bought recently. I've taken it out locally a few times, but am getting ready to take it on a much longer trip to NC. When doing the dealer walk through, they showed me how to do pretty much everything but drain the main water tank. I asked them not to fill it up before we left the dealership, but I guess it didn't register cause it's filled to capacity. I would like to drain it before hitting the road to help gas mileage. Does anyone else have a 28DS that could tell me where I might find the drain lines? Are they as simple as turning a ball valve or do I need some tools? It's at a storage lot now and I'd need to bring the tools with me. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

I have a 28ds and the drain lines under coach on the right side basically under the water heater. You have to crawl under the coach and remove two 1/2" threaded caps, one drains the tank, the other drains the water lines. I use two channel lock pliers, one on the plug the other on the fitting. The lines are grouped together with the water tank overflow vent line. If you drain everything make sure you drain the water heater also. Do you need pictures? My coach is at my manufacturing facility and can get those if needed.
