Where is fresh water drain for Sandpiper?

Hey everybody. I'm new here and already have a question. I have a 2008 forest river 305rgs sandpiper and can't locate my low point fresh water drain.

Sometimes the fresh water drain barely sticks below underbelly .
Sometimes the valve is underneath some times its inside the camper.
Your fw drain should be directly below fw tank.
Now your "low point" drains would be different than fw tank drain.

Welcome to the forum.

Now I have those two pex lines. If I'm thinking right those just drain the lines. But I still can't find anything for my fw tank.

Take a better look... it sometimes can be hard to find and barely sticking through the underbelly.
Sometimes you'll have a shut off valve like mine and sometimes the valve will be inside camper.
I'll post anther picture of an older drain valve.

Hmmmm well hopefully someone with a similar or same model and year will be able to help.

Can you take a good pic underneath where your fw tank is located?

my '07 Roo's FW tank is in an inside cabinet, with the drain valve right next to it.
find your FW tank and look for a valve that can be pulled up or turned to drain.
there is no "low point" drain for the FW tank, just a regular drain.
low point drains are for the water lines.

Your fresh water tank is generally right underneath where you fill it.

My 2012 Silverback FW drain is behind the most rear axle on the drivers side.

It had the drain like The last pic I posted.

Well to be exactly correct, mine is also under the slide, but no problem getting to it when the slide is retracted.
