When I opened up the black panel in the driver side aft large compartment, this is what I found. More electrical than water...Click image for larger version

Hard to tell from the picture, but I think they are on the right side of that opening. There should be 3 water lines with T fittings that pop up. Red and blue for hot and cold, a white for the fresh tank drain. You may have to reach in and feel around for them, or maybe take the whole wall pannel off......Bruce

Thank you Bruce. My next check will be to remove the entire panel. I would have guessed (wrongly) that freshwater drain locations would be designed for much easier access.

Once you locate the drain valves, you could probably make another access*cover for them.....Bruce

You are right, if that black panel was located 8 inches to the right, access to freshwater drains would be easy. I will extend the cutout and replace with a larger panel. Or I may try flipping it 180 degrees in case they just installed it backwards causing such a misalignment. And yes, you have to pull the T valves up, not turn them. Click image for larger version
