Where's the Low Point Drain

I have a Hemisphere 286RL 5th wheel. I can't find the low point drain. I have one drain underneath with a valve that empties the Potable Water tank. I have a Potable water tank overflow tube underneath on the passenger side with a sticker that says Low Point Drain but no shut off valve. I know this is the Potable overflow tube because I've overfilled the Potable tank and that's the tube the water comes out. I have another overflow tube next to the Potable Water drain and I don't know what it's for. Nothing has ever come out of that tube. Probably Gray tank but not sure. Neither overflow tubes have valves. No other drains are under the camper. Can anyone tell me where the low point Hot and Cold drains would be?

On my wildcat they are directly below the shower between the frame and outer skirt. They were hard to find because they didn't hang lower than the frame. And most of the one's I seen are red and blue.

On my 2018 29BHHL (Hemisphere Hyper Lite) they are under the right rear side siding. Mine has the outside fridge and sink/counter above the general area where the low point drain plugs. They are red and blue. BTW, the 2 caps were located behind the hot water screen by the factory.

Thanks onetonford and jrw711. I found them on the passenger side between the front pass through storage and the entry door.

Crazy where they place them.

Especially since the sticker indicating where the low point drains are is 15 feet away from where they actually are!

The small tube next to fresh water drain could be just a vent tube for FW tank. They usually just use the overflow for venting though.

Usually just forward of the entry door.
