New and need help

Good evening everyone. My name is Tyler and Iím new to the RV life. I bought a 2021 Coleman lantern 26bhs and love it. Iím still learning the ways of it all but i am finding practice, repetition, and most importantly asking questions is important. So my question, for my current issue is draining my fresh water tank. For the life of me I cannot find the drain plug for it. Iíve searched google, went to the keystonerv website and watched videos and looked at all my manuals and cannot find it. Iíve crawled under the rv and found the obviously low point drain but that is the only thing under the rv that closely reassembles a drain. I was hoping someone here knows exactly where itís at or had a similar issue and knows where to find it. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Suggestion: try crawling underneath it again, and see if you canít find something that looks like the photos below. Thatís the fresh water dump valve & handle on my 5th wheel rigÖ but Iím guessing yours probably has something similar.

Look for something that looks like your low point drain valve somewhere near the axles that is almost impossible to get to!

If you have coloplast covering, they may not have cut the hold for the drain. Your tank should be located center of your axles.

Your fresh water tank should be located above the front axle. Some have the pull handle valve like ATC Guy showed, mine is a 1/2Ē quarter turn valve sticking through the underbelly by the front right tire. Got to crawl under the TT to reach the valve.

My Aspen Trail 1900 RB has low point drains on the street side near the back tire. Also have fresh water drain on the same side near the front tire.

The fresh tank drain on my Kodiak Cub looks exactly like the two low point drains underneath. The hot water low point drain is red. Both the other two are white.

There is no label showing which is which or where they are.
