Fresh water drain

Does anyone know the location of the fresh water drain valve on a Alpha GF38RLT fifth wheel?
Thanks.
Canuck

I don't know about that exact model, but almost all RV trailers have a drain valve in the bottom of the fresh-water tank. Crawl under the trailer and find the fresh-water tank. If the drain valve is not obvious, then feel through any covering until you find the drain valve. Then open the valve. On mine, that usually meant I got wet from the time the valve opened until I could crawl out from under the trailer.

SmokeyWren,
Thanks for the reply. I've been under the unit and could not see anything as the bottom is completely sealed off with metal.

The fresh water drain on both of my units were in the same location. Within two feet of the tank, and next to the pump, there is a valve that opens to drain the tank. This is accessible through one of the side hatches. My Carri-lite uses a small plunger type valve that lifts to open and drains through a short hose out the floor of the storage area.

Thanks to all for the replies. We found the valve in the utility closet. The previous owner cut the drain line short and re-installed the valve behind a partition in the cabinet.
