Water drain air brakes

Where can I find the water drain for the air system?

Is it in the compartment near the batteries with the filters?
How frequently should it be drained?
Drained while aired up or not?

On my Mountain Master chassis there are three lanyards in front of the right front wheel along the frame rail that, when pulled, will drain each section of the air tanks. Some coaches have auto drains and do not have the lanyards. I'm sure one of the 45' owners will chime in here soon.

Mine has 3 lanyards on frame close to front passenger tire. I raise the entry steps and crawl under to pull them.

Thanks for everyone's input. Casted around the internet and found this picture of a Spartan Chassis.

Then found mine on the frame rail in front of the right front passenger tire behind the stairwell enclosure.

Manual drains are always on air brake tanks too.The automatic drains can freeze and fail to operate.
