Question Water Drain Location(s)

Hi. I own a 2017 Dutchmen Coleman 192RD. I am in the process of winterizing it. In draining the water lines, I spotted a valved line hanging down below the bottom-side near the back end of the RV and I have drained it. However, I cannot locate the hot and cold drain lines. Please let me know where these line are or if there are any to even be found. Thanks. John.

I don't have that model. Most of the time the drains are under the hot water tank or the water tank itself.

Mine are just under the water fill ports. the drain towards the back on the right side is the fresh water drain. Make sure you drain the hot water heater and bypass it.

I called Dutchmen customer service and the guy said there was only the one drain pipe behind the axle on what would be the driver's side. That is the one I opened up and drained. However, he did not seem the surest to me. So, I am asking anyone who would own my model of the Dutchmen.

There should be a drain for the hot water and one for the cold. the fresh tank (on mine) is behind the front axle.

does your trailer have the insulation on the bottom? These two valves should be directly under where you fill.

I think you may need to settle for the air method of blowing the lines out if you can't find the system drains.

stupid manual doesn't say much.
