draining fresh water DX3

Need suggestions on how to drain the freshwater tank on a 2019 DX3. I opened the low point drain valves, but very little came out. The gauge is still showing 1/4 tank. I used air pressure to blow out the city water lines, but when I turn the water pump on, I still get more out of the faucets. Is there a drain on the tank somewhere ?
Thank you, Brian

My fresh water tank drain is on the forward wall of the wet bay.

There is probably an inch or two of water still in the bottom of the freshwater tank because most freshwater pump suctions are not on the very bottom of the tank. You really should find the drain to the freshwater tank.
