Low point drains inaccessable

My low point drains were placed in a location that made me crawl into the basement of my fifth wheel, reach through a 18" by 18" hole & reach back towards the exterior about a foot & a half to open the drains. This made winterizing a real hassle. I am not a little guy & I am not as young as I used to be. I bought a twin electric water valve for a washing machine & put it in between the low point drain valves & the lines. I installed two switches to operate them from outside the compartment to make it easy. The valves are 110volt. Since the drain tubes exit on the living side of the camper close to the exterior, when we need hot or cold water to fill a bucket for cleaning purposes, this makes it easy. Winterizing is also a piece of cake.
