09 Suncruiser 32H Fresh Water Drain

We just recently picked up our "new" 09 Suncruiser 32H. The fresh water tank drain is behind the propane compartment...above the tank and to the right. There is a valve handle and the drain itself looks to be just a 90 degree PVC fitting. So, when you drain the tank, water cascades all over the place. It seems like there shoul be a length of pipe extending thru the compartment like the low point drains. Fortunately the propane compartment has no bottom so it isn't like the water floods a compartment. Still, just wondering if this is something that should be there that i can get the dealer to install under warranty.

My '09 Adventurer is the same,just a 90 degree out of the tank,with a ball valve.It is a open area because of the propane,so no need for a tube down.

My fix, use 3/4" grey plastic conduit. it fits pretty well into the PVC fitting and is very cheep. worked for me. Just used available offsets and elbows to make a drain that is below the propane tank

I'm pretty sure no dealer is going to install a modification under warranty. It's just too much liability for them. But you can do it yourself and not violate the warranty. In the years to come you'll need to fix-her yourself why not start now.

Have fun with it.
