Drain fresh water tank

I would like to know if someone could tell me where the drain plug is for the water tank on the FR3 30DS? I want to drain the tank instead of driving 300 miles with a full tank and all of the weight. I have looked and I found the two hoses at the low drain point, however I don't know if this is where I drain the main holding tank. I need help on this one. Thanks to all.

They are your drains. I usually open both.

Drain Pipes

The attached picture shows my 2014 FR3 drain pipes. I've only opened the longer one and it drained the tank fine - just unscrew the plug. As the MSG said, you can probably open both - probably drain faster. It's located on the passenger side of the coach close to where the vent for the furnace is. It's about two feet from the side of the motorhome.

Go to Home Depot and buy a plastic valve and a short nipple and you do not get wet draining it
