I don't have your same coach so I don't know where to tell you.
you can not see mine, but there is a rod with a ball on it you pull the rod and it opens the valve, mine is in the front compartment pass side.

I'm sure someone will know where yours is!

Here is a link for your manual but it does not say exactly where it is. Look at page #25

http://fleetwoodrv.com/partsandservi...4_CORONADO.pdf

Follow the lines from the fresh water fill to find your fresh tank. Typically the fresh water pump and hand operated drain valves are located close to the tank itself, just under, or just to the left or right. I think older Fleetwoods had a blue handle for cold and red for hot drain valves.

I have a new 2012 Fleetwood Southwind 36S. I can not find the fresh water drain valve. The manuel says its at the end of the fresh water tank, but my tank is enclosed with no valve that I can see. Help! I found it just a few minutes ago.

Hi BikerMike!

I have a 1992 Coronado 30'. With only a year's difference, am guessing that our rigs are similar on many things.

On mine, the water tank drain valve is at the rear side of the RV on driver's side. Open the compartment where the shore power cable is connected and stored. Pull the cable out completely, and you should then be able to see/feel the valves on the right-hand side inside the compartment. Use a flashlight too see better -- that small space is dark inside. :-)

Hope this helps. Keep us posted!

on our 08 Southwind, just aft of the entry door is a small compartment, at the very back should be the drain vavle. The vavle is hard to open & close and a pain to get at. They replaced the original, this one is not much better.

Hi bikermike!

Our coach is a '95 and the valve is under the bed. There is round knob and a small grey "T" handle. I open the valve and then pull the handle. Voila.

So maybe look there if the other suggestions these fine folks have given you don't pan out.

Where is the drain valve? I cannot find one on mine.
The tank is 2/3rds full and all I get is a dribble out of any drain I can find.

What year and make of Fleetwood? On my 05 Jamboree the valve was located under the seat cushion of the dinette closest to the passenger seat of the cab.

Basically, where is your white water tank fill port? The water tank will be next to that in your rig. Then start lifting cushions or opening panels in that vicinity. It took me the better part of a week to find mine.
