we have a 2008 Mandalay 40G and the owners manual says the low point drain is located in the systems compartment. Ours is about a 1 1/4 inch line just at the front of the service bay. Turn on the faucets and then just turn the drain cock valve and let it drain.

Thought that was the freshwater tank drain? Same thing? Have the 1 1/4 drain w / valve also but does not indicate low point drain ???

My 2008 43A (past coach) had all drains in or around the wet bay. The fresh tank drain was on the left (valve on a PVC pipe, aimed through a hole in the bottom of the bay), and if I remember right, the hot and cold low point drains were just petcocks, red and blue, on flexible tubing hanging low behind the wet bay somewhere.

I found 2 drains in my wet bay. I looked under my chassis below the wet bay and saw 2 tubes hanging down. Followed them up into the bay and found 2 valves. I had to be laying down to spot them.
