Question Axis Owners - Low Point Drain Location?

Calling all Axis/Vegas owners!

We're the happy new owners of a 2014ish Axis and have a question -

I've crawled all over under the thing, and I cannot find the low-point drain valves. I'd really like to do a flush and sanitize, but it's hard without knowing where the drains are! Any help is appreciated. The manual is generic to all Thor gas class As and has the terribly helpful advice that the "location varies."

A little more background for anyone interested.

We're the second owners of a nearly-new Axis. The original owners took it on one trip, had health issues come up, and decided RVing wasn't practical any more. We went to the local Camping World looking for a W'bago Via one Saturday. They don't stock the Via, but a similar style Axis had come in just that morning...

We looked, and liked - especially the price - compared to the Winny. Unfortunately, they couldn't sell it to us. It was so new that the original owner hadn't received the title from the state yet! We put down a deposit, and did the deal two weeks later when the title was turned over to CW.

We did an overnight at Mueller state park here in Colorado over the weekend and love it. It's got all of the available upgrades but for the living room vent fan, plus an after-market satellite TV robo-dish. I say 2014ish, because it is a 2014, but has the new window shades and in-shower faucet valves. It doesn't have the nifty awning LED's though.

I worked summers in the service shop at the local Winnebago dealership a loooong time ago; sadly, some things haven't changed much. Lots of little issues that need attention. We worked a year's worth of extended warranty into the purchase price, so it'll go back to CW for some TLC as soon as the parts arrive.

Thanks again for help with the drain location.

Regards,

Randy

Found 'em

The valves (3) are inside, under the passenger side bed. They exit between the frame rails so they're impossible to see from the side of the coach. There is no caulk in the holes, so off to the hardware store for some of the nasty black expanding foam stuff.
