Fresh water tank 2006 Salem LE 27bhss

Is there an easy way to drain lines & fresh water tank on my 2006 Salem LE 27bhss?
I am hoping there is a way to drain other than running water pump and pumping through dark water tank.

There is a seperate drain for the fresh water tank on my trailer. Inside of being on the tail end where the grey and black tanks are located the fresh water drain is about half way between the midpoint and front end (driver side). The handle is a little harder to notice but still reachable.

I just got back from the storage place when your post came in. I took a couple of pictures.

Its outside under the trailer but away from my grey and black tanks. I think my fresh water tank is close to it but I'm not sure. I have not fill up the tank yet and the trailer is off site otherwise I would check.

Do you have a sticker that is label "Drain Outlet"? I can't tell you how many I have walk passed it on my trailer, read it yet I didn't think to check for the valve handle there. Recently I just asked the serive department gal where it was and she showed me but I never thought to *connect the dots* with the label. LOL

I have the same trailer and year so I think I can help you out here

Look between and just behind the wheels on the passenger side. There is a valve you can open to drain the fresh tank there. It is only about half a turn to open it fully. If the trailer was here I would take a pic for you but it is out at the lake.

You will have to get down low to see it but it is there. Once you know where it is you can just reach through and open it up.
