2011 Tioga Ranger 31M - water drain?

Just purchase a new to me 2011 Tioga Ranger 31M, low mileage, great condition. My question is where are the low point drains and the fresh water tank drain? In the manual it puts them in the are where the dump valves are but they are not there. I did find 2 lines in the same basement area where the water filter is located with valves. Is that the low point drain for the hot and cold? Taking her camping for the first time this weekend..can't wait!

Have you looked , under the floor in the same area?
My last 5er, the low point drains were , a line through the floor, that was capped off , rather than a valve above floor level.

EDIT: On re-reading your post, I'd say open the valves you've found, with the water pump turned off and see what comes out. You could have hot water in the system first, to identify the hot line by , the temp of what drains out.

Do you have the installation diagrams with all the plumbing shown. On our older Tiagra the manufacturer sent us all the diagrams after we requested them. I'm not at the rv right now but I believe the main drains are back where you said.

Dixie dogs, I believe the valves you found are what you are looking for. We rented one of these in the spring, and the dealer could not fill the tank or water heater as those valves were open. Once I closed them, we were good to go. Good luck with it, we liked it a lot for the week we had it and would probably purchase one some day

Thanks all! Yes they were the ones I was looking for. I was finally able to hook up to a water source and verified that it worked!
