Fresh Water Drain

Hi Folks,

I just picked up a 1998 National Tradewinds motorhome. I have been looking for the drain valve to completely drain the fresh water tank, but canít find it. I have been told it is not the pull handle that is notched in the compartment bulkhead and that it is underneath the rig somewhere. I need to find it so I can do a bleach flush on the fresh water tank. Does anyone know where this drain valve is located.

Thanks for any information.

Fresh Water Drain

On the Passenger side in the first storage compartment on the left side of the back wall there is a small panel held in place with velcro The valves are behind this panel and are piped to dump on the ground.

Good Luck
