[QUOTE=. One last idea is maybe the manufacture forgot to install the plugs or don't install them anymore. who knows? Anyway thanks to all who tried to answer the question.[/QUOTE]

Well, this cannot be the situation if they are the low point drains. There would be no water at the faucets. I've heard sometimes the valves are under the bed but in any case there surely are selector valves somewhere in your unit. Of course this is predicated the tie in with the main water lines was done. You'll find them eventually. Maybe.

Hi, well it has free standing dining chairs, recliners and a sleeper sofa that all are just sitting on floor and can be moved around easily. I have owned three Rv,s and this is first I have seen that I can't find all parts of the plumbing system. Maybe FR can solve my dilemma and tell me how the system works. Anyway Thanks all for ideas.👍

Well I have the same model but 2013. My drains are close to the waste discharge and hot water heater. They are capped. Only the tank drain is by the axle and is white with a valve. They may have changed the design but if they are by the axle and you used the system with water, the valves must be there, either under island sink (remove panels at sink) or under bottom drawer at pantry. These lines would be on high pressure side as opposed to the fresh water tank drain. If you used your 2016 either there are valves below floor level (check your water management panel) or if you haven't used it your plumbing won't hold water.

Hi, I have been under sink,no hoses or valves under there, looked under pantry no hoses there, opened up panels around water pump and all the panels and hoses in that area. I also inspected behind outside shower and attached hoses as well as. I am afraid to attach air pressure until I know the drain valves are open, do not want to bust something. Going back on Monday to try again.😩 Thanks again

My low point drain valves are right behind my water heater on the red & blue lines. I don't think my trailer is the same as yours but that's where mine are. I had to remove a panel that hid that part of the basement compartment. It stays off.

Forgot to mention,l have used the Rv seven weeks this summer and every thing has worked great, no leaks, no smells, plenty of water pressure at shower, fresh water and city water work great. I am contacting forest river for help.

Hi again, I was hoping someone that owned a 2015 or 2026 Salem 286RL or flagstaff equivalent, please look under your vehicle and see if u have open hoses or caps. I would really appreciate it.

If you can't find valves inside trailer maybe the valves are just above the underbelly covering and FR workers forgot to put access panel?

If you've checked all those areas, and used the trailer with water it's time to ask the dealer or Forest River. You can hook a compressor up to city water hook up with up to 40psi on it without bursting anything. That's how I winterize. Only use the pink stuff in the p traps. Good luck. I think your left with in the sub floor area above the outlet hoses.
