Freshwater Tank Won't Drain
I have a '99 Fleetwood American Tradition 40TVS and I am experiencing an issue regarding draining the freshwater tank. I open the hot and cold water drain valves in the water compartment along with the two drain valves in the opposite side luggage compartment. When I open all 4 values they drain for just a few seconds and then basically stop. The cold water drain in the water closet will drain slowly if I run the water pump (although the book says not to run the water pump to drain the tank). I have followed the steps in the owners manual and the tank will not drain.

In the couple trailers we've had what you have been opening is the system drain, there should be another valve right next to or against the freshwater tank itself. Usually has a hose hanging down low

Just turn on the water pump. The low point drains aren't in the tank itself, so you need pump pressure to push water to the drains.
