How to drain Water in Freshwater Tank?

Does anybody know how to drain the water from our Fresh Water tank in our 2011 Pinnacle?

Dealer put water in it for testing, not sure how to drain it.

Your 5'er isn't a lot different than mine from the outside, so....
look right behind the right rear wheel and see if you don't see a low point drain. If you do, that is the fresh water tank.

You should see a sticker that says LOW POINT DRAIN.

If you don't boon dock, You really don't need to carry but a few gallons of fresh water for flushing on the road. My dealer filled mine up and I figured I was toting over 500 lbs of water. Drained it all but a little. My valve is behind the door side wheels.

On our Pinniacle the fresh tank drain is in front of the curb side axels and rear of the step.

Just as a side note, some trailers have two fresh water tanks and two drain valves.

Thanks everyone, I found it.
Guess I was just not looking in the right place.

On our Pinnacle 35LKTS it is on the curbside just behind the axles
