Gulfstream Independence water drain valves

I have a just purchased 2006 Gulfstream Independence 8320. I can't find the water drain valve handles. I've found the fresh water drain valve. I know they are there somewhere.

Low point drains should be in the city water compartment. There are sometimes in the compartment behind that area

It is in the large compartment where the water tank and pump are. The valve is actually quite small and underneath one of the hoses close to the pump (it's dark now, so I can't check). I had a hard time finding mine too (2005 Independence) and was surprised by how small it is. If you still can't find it let me know.... I'll look tomorrow.

It is in this compartment Susan mentioned. Look for 1/2" water lines going down through the floor, under the coach. The valve are just above the floor at this location.

The drain valves on my Gulfstream are just small "Ts" in line and perpendicular to the drain lines. They just pull to open and push back to close. I have them next to the fresh water tank and also in the wet bay. Hope this helps.

I took my first trip this past w/e and when I entered the campground I heard some noise come from what sounded like the rear wheel(s). Could the wheel bearings be going bad at 10,000 miles? Or is there something else I should check?

Thanks,

My valves are near the water fresh water tank. Took a picture some time ago showing them to another GS owner.

On mine, I not only have one of those small T handle drains next to the water tank and water pump, but another in the supply line to the water distribution manifold that allows each branch of the water system to be shut off independently. To winterize, I pull the valves at both locations to drain water, close, shut off water heater and drain it, then use the water pump to fill up the lines with RV antifreeze.

While visiting Elkhart last September. I found the valves in picture above on the shelf at Johnson Surplus Muttonville, MI. They do not list it on their EBAY site. But had a whole shelf full on 3/8" and 1/2" for $1 each. Added a couple to my spare parts box. You can find their phone number on the link above.
