Question Low point drains

Are there valves on the low point drains or just the caps at the ends?

The answer to your question varies by division, by model in the division, possibly by day of the month. My 2015 Wildcat has screw on caps on the low point drains and the fresh water tank drain. Post your division, year & model and someone with the same unit might help.

Swapped out

I had caps, but swapped them out for valves. Much easier to drain.

For what year, make and model of RV are you asking about? You have no information in your profile.
Those locations vary wildly between brands and models.

If you have caps on the ends, then you probably don't have valves. For the red and blue ones, you're going to want to open up the faucets to drain the lines. The clear one is for the fresh water tank and you just have to take off the cap to drain it. Just don't lose the caps.

Ours came with caps for the low point drains. Going to replace them with valves.
