Fresh Water Drain Question

I'm new to the forum I recently bought a 2012 Salem Cruise lite 27BHXL as our first camper.

Does anyone know where the Fresh Water Tank drain is????

I have the low point drain and the overflow hose on the drivers side by the fresh tank.

But for the life of me I can not find where the actual drain is on this unit.

On mine the fresh water tank vent line (not overflow - more on that in a second) and drain line (that one has a valve on it) are directly below the tank. The low-point drains are tucked up near the floor close by. Those have large nuts on them, which need to be unscrewed when draining. I'll probably convert them to valves.

The "overflow" is really the vent line and SHOULD have been routed up through the floor and attached to the vent hole next to the fill spout. I have a thread on this in the Salem sub-forum, most recent post was yesterday so it should be easy to find.

Mine are located on the curb side, just behind the rear axel. The low point drains are clustered together with the sewer connections.
