Coachmen Mirada Question

2001 coachmen mirada. I winterized according to the manual. The only fresh water tank drain I have found is in the control panel by the siphon hose. Is that it or is there another on the tank itself? If so I haven't found it please tell me where it is.

We own a 2004 Coachmen 300QB (Mirada) and drain the fresh water tank using the control panel located in the rear storage. Our panel illustrates how to position each knob to FILL, USE, WINTERIZE and DRAIN the tank. The water drains from underneath onto the ground. The part you're looking at is where you siphon antifreeze into the holding tank to winterize. If you're planning to do it yourself, be sure you drain the excess water after blowing out the water lines. Otherwise, you may have a cracked drain pipe come spring (like we did).

Thanks. Yeah I understood the panel and siphoned antifreeze thru the lines until it ran pink in all faucets both hot and cold. I poured antifreeze in all drains and a gallon each into the black and gray water tank. I was just a little confused because the manual mentioned a low point and tank drain valve that I couldn't find. I used the valves on the control panel as illustrated. Don't really think there was any water in the tank but wanted to make sure. The indicator light is red (empty) so I should be good. Do you put antifreeze in your fresh water tank just in case? Only way I see to do that would be thru the fresh water fill attachment.

Sorry for long reply, I appreciate the info

Last year was our first attempt to winterize after watching several "how to" vids on youtube (none of which said anything about draining the gray tank a second time or leaving open the lever) .. most suggested using the pink stuff, so we siphoned about 5 gallons into the holding tank and pushed it through the lines (bypassing the water heater). Only problem was flushing that stuff out in spring - way too much trouble. So, this year we'll just blow out the lines and pour antifreeze in the traps and toilet. Can't imagine how long it took you to get all that pink stuff outta the water heater?
