Low point drain valve

Where is the low point drain valve located in a 2018 Sunseeker 2350LE?

Mine in in a compartment behind a panel just behind the passenger rear tires. Do you see anything hanging down under the vehicle That looks like a tube, hose? I have 2, one with a cap, low point drain and another that is open. FW tank drain is where filter and pump is on mine.

Yes, blue and red hoses hanging near the back wheels.

you have 2 low point drains both with valves. one blue,(cold) and one red (hot). Your FW drains (2) one will have a valve (drain) and one won't (vent/overflow).

Oops, I replied in a wrong area (new at this).

Great, but WHERE is the valve to open the low flow?

It's called "low point drain" that's because it is the lowest point in the water piping system to drain the system for winterizing. If there is no valves visible, (you need 2) Look somewhere inside (compartment/cabinet) directly above the hose.

Fresh water is 'drain' (singular - usually) and
Low points are 'drains' (plural - red is hot; blue is cold - as stated above).


Have you looked where A32Deuce stated in post #2?

Did you find/remove the panel he mentioned?

Where are the 2 lines that hang underneath? Above them may be where the valves are. Look in the compartment and see if maybe there is a panel that hides them. Mine does.

Typically the low point drain valves just have caps on them that need to be removed.

My low point is just a cap, no valve. Just the FW tank has a valve and that's in a compartment behind a removable panel along with the water pump and the whole house filter.

Look underneath for tubes hanging down, then see what is above them. My FW drain handle is in the compartment behind the right rear wheels behind a door leading to the house filter, water pump and FW dump valve.
