FR uses these has low point drains. Plugs can be gotten at Lowes, home depot, or hard ware stores. Water fill to fresh tank sounds like a disconnected line or missing filter bowl. IMO

One other thing to check on the water gettint into the trailer when filling system.. Check on the sides of water pump which will be located in many places probably in a cabinet or around water heater There may be a small filter to catch sediment just before the pump. It is possible it may be leaking or may be cracked due to being frozen, I forgot to remove filter on mine one winter and a little water was left in it after draining . Only few teaspoons of water but enough to crack plastic filter causins leak when filling.. Hope you get things figured out, Im sure your fix lies somewhere in the good suggestions already mentioned.

The plugs worked and the water is running. Now I have the fresh water tank problem. I cant get to the line without taking the skirting on the bottom off which I would hate to do. Im pretty sure its not the filter because its leaking underneath the rv as well as inside. I will check that out though.

It sounds to me if you are unsure this much you should make an appointment with your local RV dealer and have them not only figure it out but have them dewinterize it and show or tell you how to winterize and dewinterize your specific coach. It might pay for this one time to understand your coach going forward.

just a thought.

1. Was the trailer ever located where the temp goes below freezing, if so was the trailer winterized?
2. Is a gravity fill or city water pressure inlet causing leaks?
3. Is there a cabinet inside by the low point drains?
4. Can you locate the water pump?
5. Do you have someone who can turn the water on-off while you are inside finding the source of the leak?
6. What model fleetwood backpack?

If water is entering the trailer the leak is in the trailer , not below hidden by the skirting.

There's a good chance this can be fixed by a mobile rv service. That service could also show you how things work.

FWIW Are you sure the water tank is under the floor? Most I have seen are inside the house under a bed or couch so they stay warm if below freezing. I would be looking for that and the water pump winterization connection.
