Triple E Commander query
Just bought a 2005 32 ft Triple E commander which we are going to take on its first trip tomorrow. We wanted to drain the water tank and replace with fresh, but cant find a drain plug or instructions in the manual anywhere on how to do this! It gives instructions for winterizing with antifreeze, and utility panel identifies low water point, but no where does it show a drain. Help! Thanks so much!:)

Assuming your 2005 32' Commander is basically the same as my 2004 32' Commander. My water tank drain is in the compartment just aft of the entry door. Its a lever type tap and there are 3 pipes underneath, one for the drain and two tank overflow's.

Low water point should be the drain, is it capped or tap in line. Tap would be for tank drain. Cap would indicate a pressure line, hot /cold should be one for each. My EEE 5th was that way.:thumb:
TripleE made what would seen by some ; myself included ; the best cold weather unit around.When upgrading to class A, I couldn't find a floor plan I liked in a unit I could afford. I hope they get back into A production bt the time I can upgrade, I'd love to have one.:D

I have a 2000 Commander 3504GS and the fresh water drain is located alongside the fresh water tank. My fresh water tank is located under the rear bed. The drain valve has a round handle just like your house water shut-off valves and is located on a hose that comes out of the very bottom of the fresh water tank. You should also see an overfill hose coming out of the fresh water tank.

The low point drain valves on my Commander are color coded for hot (red) and cold (blue) again with round handle shut-offs.

Suggest you read your owners manual , if you don't have one contact Triple E in Winkler, Manitoba.

The 2005's drain is by the 2 overflow pipes in the baggage compartment just behind the entrance door. The tank itself, is under the main floor just across from the entrance door. Look under the inside step and you will see the return air vent. The tank is just inside there. There is also a steel cap on the otherside just under the slide. That gets you to the otherside of the water tank for removal.
Just open the tap in the baggage compartment and all the tank water will run out - for draining it.

Thank you!
A big thank you to everyone who replied to our query - the correct answer was the yellow valve in the storage compartment just behind the entry door. Our manual had said it was part of the utility panel, but no amount of wishing and searching placed it there! (the suggestion to read our owners manual was unneccessary - we had already spent 4 hours going cover to cover 3 times)

Had a wonderful first time drydocking camping expereince with it - and look forward to our longer trip this winter. Thanks again everyone!
