Rockwood 8280 low point drains

Ok, feeling kind of dumb here, I can't seem find the low point drains on the 8280ws I was gonna open them until I can winterize next week. Any of my fellow 8280ws owners feel like easying my pain and tell where the stupid things are, I didn't get completely under it, but did look in all the usual places.

Any help will get you a big thank you and a beverage at FROG in Aug.

Michael

I dont have your model but climb underneath and look for hoses .
if they have valves on them then thats it . but if they are just 2 hoses sitting there then go inside and the valves should be there . You might have to open a cabinet that has hinges on both sides to access them but thats where they'll be !

The low point drains are on the door side, just in front of the door, between the outer skirt and the camper frame. Two lines, one red, one blue...screw on caps on both.

We are very happy with this model, we have had it since may of this year, and have used it almost every other weekend, and have no problems I would say go for it if thats what you want.

We're very happy with ours that we've camped in for 2 years...virtually problem free.
