Found them !!!

They are T-valves inside the trailer under the tub, go figure! I had to remove a panel on the side of the tub that had a furnace vent and reach way back inside to find them. They were straight above the drain tubes.

Thanks for all the info and tips! As a Newbie to the forum I really appreciate a place to get help and advice. My Roo 232 is ten years old so I hope Rockwood has improved on the design for these drains to make them easier to get too!

Thanks again to all!!

Tbear, glad you found them.
Luckily my 2007 Roo 23SS had the T-valves right under the sofa. Just had to lay down and reach under the couch.
I'm sure the T-valve location varied by floor plan.
Personally I preferred the T-valves inside to crawling under the trailer to unscrew cheap plastic caps that came later.
So I don't see the newer style as being an improvement.

My new TT have low point valves along the side that I only have to bend down to open them.

Thinking I might do this as well since I always seem to forget about or misplace the caps after draining the system and if you loose a cap your screwed. So the valves you added screw directly on to where the caps ends would normally go??

Yes. I took the caps with me to make sure I got the right size. The valves are threaded on both sides with female thread. I also bought two threaded pipe plugs to screw in the end of the valves loosely. That keeps road debris and mud from entering the valve but are just screwed in loosely hand-tight.

"They were straight above the drain tubes" Glade you found them. That was the point of my post #10. straight up over the tubes.
