I did a search for "Fresh water drain" and found several threads including ..........

These might give you hints on where to look.

I think many of Sunseekers have them in the first compartment behind the rear wheel on the passenger side. There may be a door you have to open inside the compartment to reveal the water pump and fresh water drain.

fresh water mod

I believe that it is by the pump if you look under it you should see a blue and red pipe sticking out. It will be the blue pipe. However i did a mod to my system which makes all of this so easy. I will post picks of it when i get home. What i did was remove the filter from the freshwater tank to the pump and installed a bypass . When you turn that 3 way valve between the 2 settings it will actually drain the fresh tank completely just make sure to have the pickup hose slotted through the bottom or your compartment, and there is no need to go under your unit. When its in the bypass position i put the hose in antifreeze turn on the pump and in 10 minutes the whole unit is winterized. front to back top to bottom.

The low point drain runs there as well. On mine the low point drain is red and has a cap on the pipe that hangs under the RV. The fresh tank drain has a 90 degree valve inside the compartment.

Do you know what the red pipe is?

Is it a drain for the hot water tank or lines? I always just remove the plug from the tank and drain it that way.

The lines. The tank is drained as you stated.

I have a video on winterizing a Sunseeker that shows the fresh water drain and the hot water lines drain.

Excellent video of the winterizing process. We have the same model, so it was excellent plus!. We had a travel trailer for about 15 years prior to getting the Sunseeker, I always just did the compressed air process, bypassing and draining the water heater, then dumping some antifreeze into each trap.

But with the ability to attach a hose to from the water pump to the antifreeze, the pump process seems just as easy.

The only thought I had on your video was regarding the shower and possibly the outdoor shower. I plan to unscrew and drain the shower hose, so will not need to pump antifreeze through it.
