How do I drain my fresh water tank?

So I've looked all over. I've been focusing under where you fill. I can't find a spigot, the owners manual is useless. I have a 2715 VS 2016 rockwood.

All I found was a red and blue pex coming from the under belly near the fill for the holding tank. I don't see anything at the low drain point label either.

Thanks, I feel so frustrated now.

My fresh water fill is on the entrance door side and my fresh water drain is on the opposite side just under the edge of the trailer. You pretty music have to get down on your knees to see mine.

You should see a drain valve on the tank itself usually within arms reach but laying on the ground is generally the only way to get to it.

On my WJ it is under the where the bedroom slide comes out, see the pic. With the slide in, it is easy to access.

Once you find it, you may want to move it out to where you can get to it, like I did here on my Mini Lite:

The red and blue lines ARE the low-point drains...red for the hot water lines, blue for the cold water lines that run through your trailer. If you wan to get the last little bit of water out of your water lines, take those caps off and it will drain there. Your fresh-water tank will have a small spigot on one end to drain it. On my Windjammer, it is on the opposite side of the trailer from the fresh water fill, and as others have said, you pretty much have to be down on the ground, under the trailer, to see and open it.
