Forester 2861DS low point

We recently purchased a 2018 Forester 2861DS and I can only find a hot water low point drain and fresh water tank drain. Since my other MHs had both hot and cold water low point drains I'm wondering if I am missing something and if there's only one how does the cold water lines drain.

Your low point drain is one red pex below rig. It is designed to be used when the water heater is in bypass mode making the cold and hot water lines all connected.

Mine drain into the gray tank. Capped for the hot water and a valve to open to drain the fresh water tank.

My 2860ds there is a low point drain right next to the hot water drain below the water pump and filter. The valve is in the pump compartment. I plan on adding a valve to the hot water line in the same spot.

I have the same setup however I am under the impression that the valve you speak of is the fresh water tank drain and not a low point drain for your plumbing. i.e. ditto to what sgtlm17 said.
