how to I drain my freshwater tank?

We have a new 2019 Wildwood x-lite 241 RL XL.


We have had it for 1 month now,. The dealer filled up the fresh tank before we drove it off the lot.


My question is we haven't used the fresh water as we've utilized the City water connection in the two campgrounds we have been to.



My question is: How do I drain the fresh tank so this way I can put fresh water in there? that old water has to be stagnant by now.


thanks

There is a valve (usually near the shower, access panel, or low point of tank). You can do a You Tube search for winterizing your vehicle if someone here doesn't respond before you need to drain it. After winterizing you would need to drain everything.

Do you know how to locate your fresh water tank?
Can you find the fresh water tank fill?

There should be a drain hose with a valve under the camper. Mine is in between my wheels.

The low point drains you are looking for are underneath the trailer, usually near your hot water heater panel on the outside. You are looking for 2 lines, the red is hot, the blue is cold. It usually drains best with a tap open. You will likely have to unscrew and remove a cap. Some fresh water tanks will require a fresh water fill hoseto fill them.

If you are concerned about stagnant water you may want to sanitize the fresh water tank before refilling it.

Both my Bullet 220RBI and my Avenger 21RB had three drain points, in different locations under the respective trailers. Two should be grouped together with either red and blue caps, or valves, depending on the trailer. These are for draining the water lines themselves. The third one, by itself, is the one you are looking for. It is for the freshwater tank. USUALLY it is in the vacinity of the fresh water fill inlet since both are connecting to the fresh water tank and manufacturers economize on materials, but it may be near the edge of the underbelly or almost smack in the middle.

I thought the blue/red drained tank. NO. That just drains lines



The drain on my 25RL is between the left side wheels. Lucking for me on the very cold night I ran the heat. My tank after winter still show water in it.

Look under the trailer, the drain should be almost below where the intake is on the side. On my last Wildwood trailer, it was between the wheels and has a screw on cap.

And when people say you are going to need to get under the trailer, they mean that literally. My freshwater drain was between the tires inside the frame, single white line sticking down with a screw on cap. I couldn't see it unless I was on my back. Will probably have a bunch of foam around it (my freshwater drains had foam up to the caps).
