2005 Kountry Star Fresh Water Drains

Looking for a little help. I want to drain the water lines in our new to us RV. I found two drains near the water fill compartment (right underneath the outside shower setup). I also found another drain on the opposite side that appears to be at the low point of the water tank as the tank goes across the mid section but also has low section on this side.

I believe the two drains on the driver's side near the water fill are likely the water lines within the coach and the drain on the passenger side is the tank itself. Can anyone confirm this?

I have a 2006 KSDP & my water drain lines are located in the wet bay drivers side. They are located under the shower faucet & marked accordingly. The drain valve for the fresh water tank is on the same side, but located way in under the wet bay panel & marked "low point drain". On the opposite side of the coach is the overflow drain for the fresh water tank, no valve.

Hope this helps

Apparently, mine is a different model from yours, but what you describe as the drain for your tank would be the tank overflow on mine. The drain for the tank on mine can be accessed through the panel in the water compartment. I believe your description of the hot and cold water line low point drains is accurate.

Hi vettenuts,
The two drains in the wet bay should be labeled "low point drain" for hot and cold water lines. Opening these drains will result in water draining from the hot and cold coach water lines. Water will still be left, at a variety of points, in the lines. The only way to get all the water out is via a air pressure blowing out of the lines.

As to the third drain, gas and diesel coaches may be different on this point. Consider opening the drain and letting it run dry. Close the drain and put 1/4 of a tank of water in the fresh water tank. Open the drain and see if the water level goes to zero.

On diesels, for 2005, the fresh water tank drain is located behind the hot/cold water drains in the utility bay. It is not easy to see, but one can reach in and turn the drain.

I have two fresh water tank drains because the tanks are split on both sides of chassis rails one from each tank located under tanks on back side of them passenger & driver sides.
If you look under the coach should see the drain lines through the floor under the coach.
If you only have one tank would have one drain.
Have a 03 gas coach.

The fresh water tank drain on my 2006 KS gasser is on the passenger side, in the bay where the tank is.

That sounds like my arrangement. I did look for labels but didn't find any. Have to see if I can bend a little lower in the water bay and check for labels again
