Check around the propane tank. I have heard this is where it may be located.

On my 2250 it is found in the outside rear storage compartment. Inside the compartment is one of those round white plastic access panels. Unscrew the opening and I find the valve inside next to the water tank.

I have been wondering about that too. I think it would be a good idea to drain our fresh water tank because it's been fairly hot here lately. I don't want to take chances with the water going bad.
