Fresh water drain Sabre 5th wheel

I have a 2012 Sabre 5th wheel 31 ckts and have looked high and low for the fresh water drain.

I have crawled under the unit many times but cannot see any drain pipe or valves.

My back is getting sore.

I know you've looked but on my Sabre there is a white hose hanging down almost in the front center (side to side) with a valve on the end.

Smile Found it

Thanks for the tip. While looking under the front of the unit for the drain pipe..which wasn't there...I glanced way back underneath and there it was....above the axles. At an extremely difficult place to reach. It requires actually crawling under the unit to get at it.

But I found it anyway.

Thanks again.

You could cut off the original drain valve and use an 90 degree elbow, short piece of 3/4" PVC pipe, and a ball valve to run the drain to the side so it's more accessable. You'd just have to find something to fasten it to.
