Low point water drain 2006 Roo 232

Bought a used 2006 Roo 232. This is first year to winterize and I'm trying to find valve(s) for low point water drains. I found under the trailer behind the driver side tires a red and blue drain tube. There are no caps so I'm assuming there is a valve(s) inside trailer. They may be behind false panel under bathroom sink but not sure. Has anyone found these valves before? I'd liked to know before removing any panels. Thanks

Our 2016 roo valves are just above the bends at those caps under the trailer.

Thanks Lawlesszoo. The drain tubes come straight down from under trailer floor. I've traced the water lines to the bathroom sink supply lines but they go on beyond there behind a panel to the shower/tub. I think the valves are behind the panel between lavatory and tub. IMO this is not a very good design. It shouldn't be this hard to access the valves.

Best of luck finding them, and no it should not be that hard to find, you have to love some of the designs that are out there.

It is standard procedure for them to put these valve behind some kind of partition or screwed shut panel.

The older Roos had low point drain T-valves inside the trailer.
My 2007 23SS had them under the sofa. The FW tank is inside and has the same valve to drain it.
Mine were a lot easier than crawling underneath to unscrew the caps.

Hopefully you've found your water heater bypass valves. They like to hide those, too!

Well I guess they simplified it later on , on my 2018 Roo 19 the drain is on the right side near the shower/sink area under the trailer, Its labeled on the outside skirt.

the low point drain valves should be under the trailer. If not, the valves will be in a straight line up from the end of the pipe. No 90's or dips. The valves must be at the lowest point in the piping system. Hence "low point drains".
