Fresh Water Drain

We don't use our fresh water tank but I did run a few gallons into it. Our old trailer had an open bottom, and there was a drain plug on the tank, but this bottom is enclosed. Are the low point drains the only way to empty it? Nothing faster?

And there are two drains side by side. Are they both connected to the tank, or am I completely missing how to drain it? Thanks.

As far as I know there is no other way to drain the tanks - at least with the enclosed underbody intact. I was told by our dealer that we have 2 low point drains because there are actually 2 tanks that are plumbed to be self leveling and together make up the 86 gallons of fresh water capacity. It's definately not quick to drain off much water!

I believe you are referring to the two drain hoses side by side which are actually overflow tubes. They are separate from the drain tube, which has the valve in it for draining. As far as I know, that is the only way to drain, unless you want to siphon water out, which would probably take longer.
