OK folks

I found the drain for the fresh water tank, it was a small blue hose with cap. toward the from of the trailer. Next to is was small RED hose with a cap, anybody know what that one is for ?

Also found a blue hose with a label stating low point drain, should I open that one up to drain also ? it was located toward the back of the trailer on the opposite side.

Thanks Again


So much to learn !! LOL

The fresh tank will be towards the front most likely, not certain with your model but mine is... there should be a red and blue pipe with a cap on each that is the low point drain for the water lines in the camper. You'll also want to drain the water heater otherwise that water will get really raunchy! If you have an outside shower you may have another low point drain over there too...

To ease the pain of taking the caps on and off I bought some ball valves and installed them on the ends of the fittings so all I have to do is twist the valve and I am draining!

On my 2013 Surveyor 220, the low point drains (red and blue) are right together near the back of the trailer on the door side. Yours should be labeled. My fresh water drain is on the same side just forward of the wheels. I had to almost crawl under the trailer to even see it, so I attached a ball valve from Lowe's as avolnek suggested. Makes it much easier to find and reach. It also avoids having to keep track of the screw-on cap. Just twist to open or close.

I bought 2 guages on Amazon for $20- each for my propane tanks. They seem to work well.
