Fresh water drain location 2015 Palomino Sabre

Where is it?? Looking at the user manual, it points to what look like water line drains (one red and blue), not the fresh water tank.

First of all what model sabre?
Second most of the sabre fresh water drains have been ahead of the low point drains "red n blue" hoses.

On mine I have a 1/4 twist shut off valve.

it's possible the valve is inside and just the hose sticks out ?

Don't see it. FYI, there's 3 "T" handle valves: black water, grey #1, and grey #2, aka galley water. The grey #2 valve is next to the blue and red water system drain lines.

OK, the blue and red water lines have caps. To drain the fresh water tank and winterize the water system, remove both caps, sit back and relax. I'm gonna have a beer! Thanks Forest River!

Did you get that information from Sabre directly? That doesn't sound right.

My freshwater drain on my 36QB Sabre is a hose that sticks down with a quarter-turn handle that you turn in-line with the hose to empty the freshwater tank.

Before you 'sit back and relax' open all the faucets one at a time starting with the one furthest from the low point drains. Don't forget washer and outside shower valves. Then sit back and have a beer . This will drain the water lines but not the onboard fresh water tank. Like ependydad's our tank valve in under the camper.
