Hopefully someone is out there that can help. My freshwater tank will not drain. I have all 3 valves open. Any ideas?

You have a blue hose coming out of the bottom of the rig with a valve on it. That is the fresh water tank. The three valves are for grey and black tanks.

The blue with no valve should be the over flow. The red for the hot water drain point, one blue for the cold drain point and one blue for fresh water.

Russ,

If you arent getting anything out of the tank drain, try blowing back into it. Mine had junk blocking the drain port from assembly.

I pulled out a wad of plastic shavings left over from the original tapping of the drain outlet.

To empty the fresh water tank (as noted on other posts) there is a small valve located under the RV and somewhat near the basement door. You will need to kneel or lay on the ground to reach the valve.
