2020 Eagle 280 RSOK low point drains
 
there are 2 pipes, one hot and one cold, hanging below our new Jayco Eagle without valves and marked as low point drains.
our previous trailer had a set up like this to make sure that the lines below the hot water tank were drained but they had valves on them.
there are 2 other low point drains elsewhre with valves on them.
we are using the city water connection and the "hot/red" pipe is dripping continuously. the cold is not.
I am not used to anything marked low point drain that doesnt have a valve on it.
What are these?

The valve are under the bottom drawer in the bedroom - you have to pull the drawer to access - this is a ridiculous set-up. I plan to install valves under the trailer this summer - pulling that drawer is a pain in the butt.

Got a flashlight and peered through the 1/2 inch crack with the bottom drawer open. There they are! Small black valves tucked against the vehicle wall under the bottom drawer slide mechanism. Thanks again!

Buy couple of Sharkbike or Gatorbite or Flair-Fit push on 1/2" valves.

then open/leave open those hard to reach valves under the drawer

I wish RV MFG Designers had to 'work' on RVs for a year before they could design ANYTHING!

Thanks Old-Biscuit, I had one valve and installed it on the dripping hot water pipe. I need to get one more valve to install outside on the cold pipe. I will remove the lower drawer and open the "hidden" valves so that I won't have to get in there again.
