Hummingbird 10RK empty water tank completely?

How do we go about emptying the good water tank completely? We tried to pump out but it still has water in it. Donít want it to freeze during winter.
Didnít see any drains etc from the tank.
Any advice would be helpful.
Thank you.

I don't have that model, but there should be a low point drain (a white valve underneath) that will mostly drain it. We (and I think pretty much everyone) find that the small amount of water left isn't a problem, as there is plenty of room for expansion (and we live in Montana, so we get hard freezes).

If you open the low point drain before your final leg home, you will get even more water out, but not all of it.

Most likely the valve will be under the TT frame, near the gravity fill port, as MontanaRick stated.

I leave it open, and the tank is completely dry by spring.

A thin amount of water in the large tank will do no harm, as it does not have the thick mass to rupture the tank.

Don’t know if your low point drain is like mine but my line has a slight sag in it that keeps some water right up to the plastic drain valve so I push the line up to remove that little bit of water just in case.
