Low level water outlet

Can someone tell me how to open the water outlet. We have tried turning and pulling and it doesn't move. I need to dewinterize.

If you're talking about the low point drain on your fresh water tank. It turns. May be a little stiff sitting over the winter.

Are you asking about the fresh water tank drain or the hot/cold water low point drains?

Have you checked the nozzle for obstructions? I had a problem draining my fresh water tank only to find that a Mud Dauber had been busy and had it filled with dirt.

On the side of the trailer above the wheel it says low point drain. It's near the shower outlet. Thanks

The low point drains in the plumbing are just caps that are threaded on... righty-tighty, lefty-loosey (although some people replace them with ball valves so there are no caps to lose).

They are crazy tight. I couldn't remove mine last fall when winterizing, so I cut them off and replaced them with a pex ball valve like this:

If it's the kind I'm thinking, the barb to male NPT piece has a hex section that you could put a wrench on then water pump pliers on the cap side...should come off.

I had to use channel locks the first time. I just hand tighten them now.
