There should be a low point drain under the coach that has a screw top

under the rig you will find 2 low point drains. near your tank, you will also find an overflow pipe and a drain pipe for you fw tank. The overflow will not have a valve on it. The drain will have a valve.

Low point drains will not drain the FW tank. they only drain the water lines.

If you are not sure, I would have someone show you. When winterizing, it is critical to do it right.

The point I am making is: My low point has two pipes with plastic caps & the FW tank overflow and is on the right under the hatch that has the water pump. I can not vouch for where yours low point is. One pipe does drains the FW tank.

I winterized mine at a RV dealer that will de-winterized for free in the spring. Last year he had to replace the water pump because it had a stuck valve. They have awful water so I drained and refilled the FW tank after I got home.

Locate the water pump, which is often hidden away behind or under something, and you’ll find the FW tank drain. You can also turn the pump on to help find it, with a faucet open, to get the process started.

The low point drains are red and blue. They drain the waterlines only. The freshwater tank has two lines. One overflow and one drain. The drain has a valve and the overflow does not. This is how the majority of RV's work. (just for the NOT MINE crowd)
