From what I have seen of overver flow drains is you normally see a single line for that purpose. My money is on a slightly open low point drain valve
If the t-handle does not close with a snap or a click feel and sound, then there may be some sediment blocking the valve from seating and closing properly. To remedy, clean and lube the T-valve with keg lube, for example, which is food grade. The valve should then seat and close properly.

To remove the T-valve, remove the metal clip just below the handle and don't lose it for the reinstall after the clean and lube.

Not always. My 2015 32RLDS has the thermal package and my low point drain valves are below the sealed underbelly.

Take off the rear wall panel in the basement, there may be shut-off valves behind the panel for the low point drains.

very strange I have a 2004 Jay Feather that has a open under-belly and all the low point drain valves (3 sets of them) are all located inside of the camper. Wish I had taken a pic of them

I have replaced all 3 of my low point drain valves as they all leaked and no matter what I did continued to do so....just plastic POS IMO. I went to HD and replaced them with brass 1/4 turn ball valves. I will be doing the same to the plastic ball valves on the HWT by-pass as two of them popped the seals....and yes I did winterize properly :-)

Will have to remove some paneling to see that. Will need to be tomorrow. Those drain tubes go up through some black material and "up" -not sure where to.

Will need to dig in tomorrow I guess. Thanks!

they should be in an area that is accessible. Look for your water lines in the area above the drain tubes

I have a 2015. The fresh water tanks (Elite package) have drain valves on the exterior of the camper to drain.


The low point drain lines have piping that extends through the insulation, but a valve inside the camper. Mine is actually in the bathroom, under the sink, back in a hidden corner. I can't even really see inside there, I know where it is and open and close by feel.


Mine also leaked slightly last trip. I think it is likely some debris causing the valve to not seat 100%. If it continues throughout the year, I will mention to my dealer when I bring it back for other warranty issues.
