Where are 2003 Mountain Aire fresh tank drains

I recently purchased a 2003 Mountain Aire 4097 diesel pusher.
Where is the drain valve for the fresh water tank? Thanks for any help you can offer.

Welcome to iRV2, and the Newmar family.

I can tell you that in my water bay , lower left hand corner , when looking at the city water hook up . Are three drain vales , low point drains for the hot and cold lines , and on the floor of the compartment below them the fresh tank drain.
I think this is a fairly common set up for Newmar coaches.

Welcome to the forum and irv2. Congrats on your new coach to you and if you look in QT's # 3 SPK64's Mod's and fixings, they may help you out with your coach, depending on its wear and tear.
Good luck and safe travels.

Yep, same as both our '00 and '02 DSDP's.

This is the lower left as you look at the water bay. Note the two knobs labeled as "Low point drains". Now note below them, as far back as you can reach, a hole in the back wall also labeled as "Low point drain". Stick your hand in that hole and feel around and you'll find a valve you can't see. This is the fresh tank drain.

Where are 2003 Mountain Aire fresh tank drains

Is there anything that can be done to speed up the draining of the fresh water tank?

It drains extremely slowly!

Thanks!

Grab a cold one (or ten )and enjoy the trickling sound of water


Seriously though, I try to drain the night before I want it emptied out which is typically from sitting at home and getting ready to fill back up with fresh water.
I am one of those that travel with water and do not worry about the extra weight.

I just turn on my pump and pump it out thru the hose connection in the bay its a lot faster than the Manuel drain takes about 30 min for a full tank
I wish they put a larger fresh water drain valve to start with
