Low point drains? Where?

Picked up the MH today. Ask the dealer where the low point drains are. The salesman and two mechanics crawled around under and in all sorts of places. Their conclusion...."we don't know where they are".

Anyone have a 1998 Thor Windsport 33SL, or something similar, where are the low point drains? Photos would be helpful.

Thank you.

I can't help you other then suggesting posting this in the Owners Forums might have a better chance at getting your question answered. Good luck

I'd check your wetbay area, they have to be somewhere for sure. There should be at least 2 lines (1/2" hot/cold) coming down through the bottom of your MH somewhere. Hopefully it got winterized okay! I may even be looking for a new RV dealer since it took 3 of them and neither of them could not find them.

I had that problem on my Thor Hurricane. Turns out that the outside shower does double duty as a low point drain. Lay the hose on the ground and open both valves. Yours may be different. There was actually a label at the shower fixture but it took me a while to figure out that it was actually referring to the shower.

That is what our Georgetown uses also.

I have a 2013 Thor Windsport andI just asked the same question at the dealer (CW). The tech crawled all over the unit and could not find it so they called Thor. They said it was under the bed. Other than the storage compartment, the other areas under the bed are screwed down so I have not opened them up to check. They even faxed a schematic to show where it should be. They (CW) suggested I turn on the water pump and open the faucets to drain the system (??) The outside shower compartment on this couch does not seem low enough to serve as a drain other than the above water pump approach.

I was wondering how the fresh water tank was going to get drained?

Fresh water tank drains are normally larger than water system low point drains. Ours is 1&1/2 or 2 inch PVC piping with a large petcock turned 90 degrees to dump. The smaller pex(red and blue) have the same type valve but much smaller of course. They(ours) are both located near the serving panel.

I emailed the manufacturer asking them where the drains are... Their reply,

"Iím sorry we do not have this information for 1998 model year."

Strange.

If it's like our 97 dolphin was, low point drains were inside the cabinet where the wh was. Tank drain was under bed with the tank.
