Cant find freshwater tank drain

I have a 98' Fleetwood Storm. I cant find the drain for the freshwater tank. I have stuffed a long hose down the inlet, turned on the water & flushed it that way, but I would really like to do an actual drain & flush. Any ideas? Help!

It should be a lever type valve on the bottom of your holding tank, could be on either end of it. On mine you have to open the storage bay and the actual lever is right on the floor next to the tank. If you can't find it there you might look under the tank to see a small tube or hose hanging down and follow it back to the valve.

In my Bounder, the drain valve is in a compartment on the passenger side of the coach. It is a plastic valve that has a blue handle. You could call Fleetwood and they might know where it is located.

Mine is accessed from the first compartment driver side by sticking your head way way in and with a flashlight I can see and reach the large ball valve (1 1/2") nearly in the middle of the frame just under the floorboards but above the chassis frame.

May the light be with you.

Check on both sides of your water pump. That's where mine are. Worth a shot.
