What drain valves and drain line is this.

What are these drainage valves for? The city water lines? All of the interior water lines once water is pumped inside the camper or what? Also how do they operate? Just turning the valve or pulling up on them? I bought this camper back in October but havent used the water system yet.It is a new camper and the dealer hooked it up to a hose to fill the hot water heater I assume.I took the plug out and drained the heater before my trip.The undercamper water storage tank has a valve I can open underneath the camper that drains that tank so I know it isnt for that.Also the undercamper storage tank has antifreeze in it at this time.I have spent 3 nights in the camper in a remote location but took water in a container.I keep the camper in my garage so I am not worried about it freezing unless I decide to go camping again this winter which is a possibilty.The camper is a 2012 Rockwood A128.

they're low point drains.

an A-frame camper won't have a back flush setup.

As bikendan said, they are low water point drains. Pull up on them, they only go about an 1/2 ", and open both your cold and hot water faucet to allow air in so water will drain. If there is enough length on the fittings on the under side of the camper, add a small piece of tubing to keep any water from coming in contact with the flooring and then caulk around where they come thru they floor. On my A128S, I had enough extra length on the fittings to add tubing, you will need to check if this is something you care to do. One other thing, just because they are low point water drains, all the water may not drain out. You could have a water line that has a high point caused for whatever reason during building of the camper. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
