Draining fresh water

My fresh water tank is 1/3 filled and I like to drain it for camp this weekend. I tried the low point drain but no water is coming off from the cold valve (cold valve only drains when city water line is turned on).

Any idea what my other options are besides turning on the pump and use the water?

It is a Thor Wave 22RB year 2006.

Thanks,
tntrac

Your trailer should have a drain valve directly connected to the fresh water tank. Hunt around under the trailer in the vicinity of the tank (if you can locate it) - it might be quite inconspicuous .

I double check tonight. With this brand of trailer, they have a black plastic covering the underside.

As most do.

I thought I had a pic on my phone of mine but I don't.

Look directly below the fill under the trailer.

Mine has a hose that is connected to the tank. It has a cap that can be removed to drain the tank. You have to crawl under the trailer to find it. Good luck!

I found the plastic nut . I am thinking of replacing it with a valve. Any cons if I do this?

i routed mine with pipe and a valve closer to side. this way i didn't have to crawl underneath like it was originally configured.

Pros: You don't have to crawl under the TT and it will be quicker.
Cons: It only has to leak 1 time to ruin a trip.
