Low point drains on Wildwood 37bhssq2?

Hello everyone,

First time posting...love this forum, has helped me out a lot since this is my first TT. I have looked all over underneath and can't locate any low point drains? I have found the drain for the FW tank but that's it. Anyone familiar with this trailer, gonna winterize this weekend or next, getting chilly here in Northern Ontario!

Oh ya, it's permanently parked so can't bring it to a dealer or anything.

Not sure I can help, but you may want to include model year for others to chime in. In case yours does not have low point drains, this is what I did on an old camper I had years ago. I always blew out the lines through the faucets starting closest to city water hookup and worked my way to the back one at a time, then opened all, including toilet, and outside faucets, and let the air run for a good while. After that, closed all valves, pumped in the RV antifreeze, and open faucets one at a time until antifreeze runs good and pink, shut off and move to next.

Oh ya, sorry about that, the trailer is a 2011 model. I had planned to winterize exactly the way you just described, would just be nice to know if I have low point drains. Thanks.

Can't imagine not having drains on a TT of that size.

I've not seen 1 without low points but hey I've not seen it all.
a lot of times they barely stick through under covering and have black silicone around them making them tuff to spot.

Year & model...

As suggested above, this is needed info for those who may know the answer...your profile says yours is a Wildwood 2011 37BHHSQ2, right?

Sorry, that model is 37bhss2q. Will have another look but thought I looked pretty good. If they're covered up then they didn't want to make it easy for me did they? haha Thanks for the help!

If yours don't have caps like most newer models do the low point on off valves may be very near the back side of your Hw heater.
Or near your water pump.

Well, nothing behind the WH and nothing underneath that I can notice. Gonna go back next weekend, blow out the lines and then do the antifreeze thing, everything should be okay...

Found them!

Well, I finally found those elusive Low Point Drains! They were just near the grey and black water drain outlet, no marking as to them being there though. Got all the winterizing done and now I'm SURE I got all the water out, used the blowout method then having already installed a hose kit onto the pump's inlet side, pulled the antifreeze in and also poured some down all drains and toilet...took 2 gallons exactly! Was a little nervous cause it was our first time but got it all done.

Did you remember to run antifreeze through the outside shower?

Yes I did! It is great how people remind you of important things like the outside shower? We have never used it so could be easily forgotten, that's why we made sure to use a checklist...things get done in the proper order and nothing gets left out.
