Is that a push/pull valve or a 1/4 turn twist valve?

I would say off. It appears the pointer is on the side of the valve, to be on or open it should be inline with the tubing.

That was used as a low point drain valve in my 96 HR Alumalite 5th wheel. Pull to drain.

I have located 4 of these valves..one on each side of the potable water pump and another 2 through a small hatch door under the shower. The pump ones are understandable if you ever needed to replace a pump with a full tank but the other 2 could cold/hot shut off/on to the hot water heater? The diagram that winnebago emailed to me I see these 2 valves
and the drawing is abit smudged in that area to seperate the lines to see
where they go..
