Location of radiator drain plug, 1998 Southwind Storm

I have a 1998 Southwind Storm, 34ft, Ford chassis, 460 engine, Motorhome. I can't find the radiator drain plug to flush the radiator. It's got to be at the bottom of the radiator, but I can't find it. Any answers?

Edinick. You might have to remove the bottom half of the shroud on the radiator to get to the drain plug. It might be easier to undo the lower radiator hose to drain the system. Eddie Elk.

Some radiators no longer have a petcock drain. You have to remove the lower radiator hose to drain.

I found it easer to take the lower radio hose loose from engine to drain my rig.

Thanks for the information about the radiator drain plug, I didn't think about removing the lower radiator hose. Sometime you can't see the forest for the trees lol.
