How to drain fresh water

Hi,

I picked up a new Whitehawk 27dsrl about 2 weeks ago, and this weekend was the first time I had to load it with fresh water as the place I was camping only had electricity. So I know how to dump the black and grey water. What about the remaining fresh water that's left over?

There should be a little valve for draining the fresh water tank right by where the tank is on the underside of your unit.

it should look like this

If I have a lot of FW left at the end of camping, I just open the gravity drain when I leave, and let it drain while I drive down the road. It is located under the trailer, directly beneath the FW tank.

Thank you so much for this information! I'm new to RV's, so this definitely helps.

fresh water not working

I too have a whitehawk and just dry camped for the first time yesterday. The tank reads full but with the pump on no water is available. All water features including hot water function properly on previous trips with city water. Is there a bypass or something im missing?

Make sure your valve is in the right position at the water pump coming from the tank. If it was closed during winterization for sucking in anti freeze, it needs to be opened to pull water from the fresh water tank.

Thanks Joe, the owners manual doesn't have a mechanical diagram of the water system. How would you locate the valves, topside or below decks?

Found it. Works good. Should that be closed when city water camping?

No need to close it if on city water.... Only for winterization to suck in antifreeze.

At the end of each outing I also drain the water lines and water heater by opening the low point valves and the faucets. I don't like having water sit in the pipes between uses.
