2001 Bigfoot 29RQ fresh water drain location

I've crawled over my motorhome, done internet searches, and still cannot locate the fresh water drain on my Bigfoot, if it actually has one. I would appreciate it if anyone could provide the location. Not under the dinette, not in the heated external shower/black/grey water valve location, not underneath the motorhome.
Please and thank you.

I gave up and pumped it into the black and grey tanks. Still want to know if the elusive fresh water tank drain exits...

Further explorations. If you remove the forward facing dinette seat, drivers side, and remove the drawer, there is a hole down into the water pump area, with a petcock drain which drains the water out under the motorhome.

Yes, mine was under the rear dinette.
If your interested. I removed the hose supplied by Bigfoot for pickup of antifreeze to winterize. Installed a 90 degree elbow and brought up a new hose through that hole. A better quality reinforced one that would not kink.
Left about three feet long. Then when I was on the road in extreme cold weather I could do the winterize job from inside a warm coach rather than outside...worked real well for me.
I then decided to add a small three gallon tank under the dinette which would hold enough antifreeze to do the coach...all I would have to do is turn the valve and turn the pump on. However, just as I was getting ready to do this final mod, I lost me head and bought a new coach.
That Bigfoot was an extremely well insulated coach. Used it many times in -15C weather and the basement was a little warmer than the coach.
