Fresh Water Tank Drain

I have a Rockwood 8244WS Ultra-Lite 5th wheel, same as a Flagstaff Classic Super-Lite 8524RLWS. I cannot find the fresh water tank drain valve. I have looked everywhere. I have tried the low drain valves but those do not drain the fresh water tank. Please help me find it!

Sorry - I don't have that model.

On mine (which is a longer wheelbase version of what you have) the FW drain is on the opposite side from the fill and is a spigot-type valve that you turn like on a free-standing, blue, camping water jug.

On a previous TT that I had with a FW fill over the tires (like yours), it was a short, capped pipe hanging down between (and inboard from) the tires on the same side as the fill.

Not sure if you found it or not. I have a FR flagstaff classic lite 30ft. Mine is as well a white spigot type valve is underneath trailer and is approx. 2 feet towards the rear of the trailer from the waste dump valves. Small white handle simply moves side to side.

Try opposite side from fill location. Should be valve underneath the fresh water tank. If slide is out on some models, the valve is under the main part of trailer under the slide.

Thanks to everyone who replied and also to Forest River staff. I did find it. It is under the dinette slide room on the opposite side from the fresh water fill. It's a little hard to see when the slide is open. I just assumed it would be located under the tank. Thanks again. You all saved me from hauling 300 lbs of water around.

Nothing wrong will hauling 300lbs of water around as long as you take that into account to stay under your GVWR. Since it looks like your FW tank is directly over the axles, it won't change the pin weight. My FW tank is all the way in the rear so it actually takes away from pin weight. I do it when going to a park with no water fill and sometimes even when going to provincial parks where it is just more convenient than the central water fill or taps.

Ours is a Lexington Motorhome, altogether different I know. But ours is under the bed. You have to lift the bed, it's near where the fresh water runs in, hard to see valve. We've threatened to change that many times but just keep putting up with it. You might check near where your fresh water comes in for a hidden valve.

Spigot

We have a FR Rockwood. It's a white spigot underneath on ours.
