Fresh water drain

We just sold a TT that had the drain valve under the dinette seat. Had to lift the seat, take a screw out of the wood under the cushion and the valve was easy to see once the plywood was lifted up. If there is no valve under the trailer you may have to search inside the trailer inside floor level cupboards, etc.

just post there for info specific to your brand.

mine has a black T-valve, right next to the FW tank. i pull it up and it drains. look and see if you have something like that.

ours is the same way. i have to reach into one of the storage compartments to get at the valve.

My 2011 SV-291's fresh water tank drain is, guess where ! Right behind in between the two wheels ! Impossible to reach unless you crawl under the trailer .... sigh .... You can not put your hand in between the wheels to reachit , it is too far away ...

You gotta get down on your back and crawl underneath. At least I had to ...

I love the sense of humour the guys who designed the trailer must have ! They must have been laughing beyond belief, saying "Can you imagine their face when they figure out that they have to lie down on the floor to empty the fresh water tank, man soo funny, we gotta pull more pranks like this on these RV owners, that should teach them not to buy the rv's we design" or something like that

Sorry I had to sort of rant on this

Finally had time to get out there a figure it out. Added water to FW tank until it read 2/3, opened the blue hose and it drained all water out of FW tank. So no valve to drain water, just the hose and what looks like a vent. Weird!
