Emptying fresh water tank

Hi all. Just bought a 2001 Fleetwood Wilderness 315G. I'm sanitizing the water system and can't for the life of me find the fresh water drain. Any ideas? Help! Please!

There's got to be a drain hidden somewhere. My older Allegro had panels in the bottom of most of the cupboards that had a round hole in them. You put your finger in and pull up the base. Then you can get to whatever utilities are under them. Look through all the cupboards (or cabinets, lower ones anyway) and see if you can find any removable bottoms.

MN is home for now.

On my current RV it is located on the bottom of the holding tank and the acess is in one of the storage bays. On my Lance camper the valve was attached to the bottom side of the camper.

Still looking

Thanks for the answers but I still haven't found the drain. Kind of unreal but even more, while underneath I discovered this rig had the electric waste valves added. One problem.......can't find the buttons! They get their power directly from the batteries and then the wires run through the wall under the bath tub and disappear. Got a REALLY good deal but this puppy has some strange little idiosyncrasies. Do most people mount these buttons inside or outside? Any ideas?

If you have located the water tank, I'd crawl under and look for a drain from there. The drain might have a rubber flap on it to prevent insects and dirt from getting in the opening. Once you find the drain, go into the area above it and look for a valve.

On your question about the switch for electric dump valves, I would do a through search of every cabinet and closet. Who knows what you might find? Doing a complete survey of all spaces is a good idea, especially on a used, 'customized' RV. Writing down any labels, manufacturer and model number of objects can allow you to search on line and find any manuals for systems and appliances you discover.
