And if you're wondering, I looked under both benches inside - where the tank is AND where the water heater is, and there are no additional valves in there that lead out here.

This drain should only be for the fresh water tank. The plumbing line low-point drains (Hot / Cold) should poke through underbarrier as (2) 1/2" (approximate) diameter pipes...My drain valves for these pipes are inside the camper directly above where they drain out the floor. (see picture above)

Good luck....

I'll take another look, but I am stumped.

That said, I am sanitizing my water system, and need to empty the freshwater tank. Nothing happens when I turn the valve.

On my TT - that exact valve swings 180 degrees open to closed and only drains the fresh water tank (from a tube out the bottom of the fresh water tank to that spigot). If your fresh water tank was filled, gravity pressure should cause it to drain. I cant imagine you have "vapor lock", but you might want to loosen the inlet cap and make sure the overflow vent is not blocked when opening fresh water tank low-point valve.

Usually low-point water line drains are installed just in front of the pump. I usually depressurize and open up all my spigots before popping the low-point water line drains.

I've tried both with and without pressure. I'll try to take some pics of the inside. It's **** confusing.

I'm having a hard time following the water flow from the images..... easy to make out the antifreeze siphon, water inlets, pump....

What I don't get are the two flexible lines that go under the floor....one appears to be the fresh water tank overflow.....the second comes off the inlet side of the pump

Wish I could help more....
