Can't find water holding tank drain 2017 Forester MBS 2401R

I took delivery of a 2017 Forester MBS 2401R a couple of weeks ago and for the life of me, I can't find the water holding tank drain. The dealer filled it up for me but I'm taking it out on her maiden voyage next week and I don't need all that extra weight.

I wish I could help you locate your fresh water drain.
Shame on your dealer for filling your tank and not showing you how to drain it.
Filling then draining your fresh water tank is basic 101 information everyone needs to learn and your dealer failed you miserably.

Looks like another great dealership not doing a PDI or a lousy one at that. Mine was 2 hours and they went over everything and had me go over it to show them that I understood.

OTN, it looks like you might need to get your kneeling pad out and start poking around under the belly. Find the tank, look for a valve like this.

Good luck

holding tank drain plug

If you dont find it, you can run the kitchen sink into the grey tank. Remember power for water pump, and vanity sink will go to black tank.
