2016 Salem Hemisphere low point water drain?

Is there a low point water drain on a 2016 Salem Hemisphere 302FK? Only see one drain underneath for the fresh water tank.
Thanks,
Dennis in Dewitt, Michigan

Our Hemi 282 has the drain on the water tank, no low point drain. Possibly the same with yours.

I have a 2015 Hemisphere 282rk.

These should be the low point water drains. Mine are in front of the left tire just forward a bit. Red and blue pipes with screw on caps.

Thanks Tim, I never saw those on mine. Sure enough, they're there!
I think those, along with the fresh water drain should have everything covered.

Copy that. There aren't any red and blue ones but I'll double check.

My 2016 302FK has the red and blue pipes with screw on caps directly under the pump location. After I drained them, I checked the pump and it was still full of water so I cut the input water line and added a "T" and 2 valves so I could run RV antifreeze through the pump, just to make sure.

I see them now. Gonna replace the plugs with 1/4 turn valves and add the T to the pump suction line. Thanks for the help.

That's the ticket. I have the valves and need 2 adapters. Thanks for the posts.
