Where is the low drain valve?

I have a 2016 JayFlight 33RLDS. The low point drain lines protrude from the underbelly by the sewer valves but I can't find a shutoff valve anywhere. Anyone have an idea? It seems to exit between the shower and the closet slide
out but there is nothing in the bathroom or shower?

Some don't have valves, just end caps.

Where is the low drain valve?

Mine are low pressure hoses protruding, no caps or valves outside. The valve is inside the RV straight up from the hoses.

In my case it is in a cupboard under the fridge. The valves are little T's. You pull the top of the T until it clicks. little over 1/8 " to open. To close push them back in until they click.

When my rig was new I had to lube them as they were a little stubborn.

Low Drain Valve

No caps on the tubes but once I find the hidden valve there will be. So many of the things you need to get to in this trailer are hidden behind panels or walls. I'll check the bathroom sink as there maybe a panel there on the shower side that opens to the floor. If not there I'll check the panel for the shower which you can't get to unless you extend the slideout. thanks for the info. I'll let you know what I discover as other 33RLDS owners will benefit.

Low point drain valves located!!!!!

I called Jayco Customer Service. Anthony sent me a copy of the schematics for the TT. Though there were a few errors I was able to finally determine what I had previously suspected - the drain valves were located under the shower floor. I extended the front slide and there was a small panel but no screws. There was a small gap along the top in the center so stuck my pocketknife blade in and applied some pressure slowly and it gave enough for me to see that it was a top slide down panel door. I slide the door up and out of the way and bingo - there they were.

I sent Anthony an email recommending that Jayco put one of the famous stickers on the panel for future owners.

I may go ahead and attach an inline valve to the hoses under the trailer for easier use since I winter camp, going South for a couple of weeks and returning North. I like to drain my tanks and blow out the lines as I leave warm weather and they will definitely make it easier.

Another DIY project completed - Thanks for the input.

Happy travels!!!!
