Just a quick question here. I am winterizing my camper and can't figure out how to drain the water from the hot water heater.

Any help? Is this on the outside panel?

First release any pressure using the safety valve. Then remove either anode rod or the nylon drain plug ( from the outside access). Be sure the electric HW switch is turned off before draining. If you have an anode rod, you may need a breaker bar if it has not been out for a while.
