Drain valves Rockwood UltraLite 2304 S

Hope I've gotten the right forum for this. We just gotten a used 2007 Rockwood Ultra-lite 2304 S. And I am trying to find the low point drains. I've crawled all over underneath. Found a red hose and a blue hose, underneath, near the frame, just behind the back axle. They are on the street side near the slide out
that holds the couch. No caps on the drain hoses(pipes) no valve handles inside the coach above the area where the outlets are. I've looked under sinks, under the tub, under the couch, behind the fridge. Any ideas?

I owned a Rockwood 2604 Ultra Lite (different, I know,) and it had low point drains in about the same location. I had to stick my head underneath to see them. Mine had caps which I removed after blowing out the lines to let any remaining water drain out. I recently traded for a new TT the dealer had already winterized. They had removed the caps. I found them behind the outside shower door.

Drain valves Rockwood UltraLite 2304 S

Our 2011 the low point drains are on passenger side behind wheels near outside wall. Sounds like you found them maybe drain caps are missing? Was it winterized? If that is them you can hook water up and see if the water runs out through them.
Enjoy your trailer we love ours!

Found, missing low point drain valves

They were hiding under the bathtub. They did not look like I expected. The panel on the side of the tub comes off with 4 square drive headed screws. To see them you have to lay on the hall/kitchen floor with your head between the toilet and the tub and shine a flashlight under there. I thought they would be "valves" you know with handles of some sort. But they look like large black plastic bolts sticking up perpendicular to the red and blue pex. They seem to work. I'll try to attach a photo.
Thanks to all who provided hints to solve the puzzle. billb

That should be your first mod. Leave the existing valves in the "on" position, button 'em up and leave 'em. Then add lever valves to the threaded ends of the pipes under the trailer.

Thanks.

I hear you there. Trying to crawl under the bathtub to do that is hard on an old man. I am thinking sharkbite fittings. I've used them to completely replumb an older trailer and they're an easy fix. Thanks for your input.
