Winterizing

Anyone know how to open the low point drain valves on a 2020 Windsport 29M?
I found then under the outside kitchen; how do they work is my question. Winter is fast approaching in the mountains of Washington; and its time to winterize.

Did you just find the hoses/pipes out the bottom or floor or did you find valves????. Is there a cabinet right over,its possible Rvs and MHs have used lift up/out floor panels. Also possible if you just seeing hoses/pipes out bottom ,they are for tank overflow . Check owners binder for winterize instructions..

Low Point drain valves

Thanks for the response & ideas"

I found the low point valves by looking under the coach and confirmed location
using the fresh water line schematic; i then had to remove the lower left draw from the outside kitchen to get access. My outside refrigerator sits above them. I can see the valves but they do not have a handle to turn them on. the valve stem has a ring through it. I tried turning them by the ring; no luck getting the valves to open. I tried to pull up on the stem using the ring again no luck. Any one have any ideas?

What am I missing here.

That's strange download the IRV2 app it makes easy to share pics . My friends old 5th wheel has some odd low point drains I seen fixing other things.
I never had low point drains on my old TT it winterized fine without.

I had the ring pull valves on my Winnebago, the first few times you use them, they're quite stiff to pull up. I put some food grade lubricant on the stem once it was opened and let it work into the internals with a few open/close cycles. They drain from the bottom.
