2016 Cedar Creek Cottage hot water low drain

I have a Cedar Creek Cottage 40 CCK Destination Trailer

To winterize, I can't find but one low water drain valve.

Does the hot and cold water drain from the 1 valve.
The hot water heater is higher elevation than some of the water lines coming from the floor of the trailer.

I do believe I saw 2. One near the front middle, left side, the other toward the rear middle. Could be wrong as I haven't seen the trailer in a month. The water heater has a drain you hook up a garden hose to.

Drain the water heater before the low points, this will keep tank sediment out of the water lines.

Pull the anode or plastic plug after you relive the water pressure and let drain.

I do have another low water drain that is for the fresh water holding tank, located below the electric and water plumbing. I have not seen a red hot water low drain. My trailer is down at my country place so I will look again next week.

Also. I will start draining the hot water tank first.

If that is true, there must be additional two valves inside. If one drain for hot and cold and no other valves inside to isolate the two, then your hot and cold are connected together.... which I doubt... scratch that anything is possible with these slapped together rigs.
