Fresh water drain

I wish my 2015 owners manual was made for my 2015 Greyhawk. The manual says there is a valve on the outside of the camper labeled "fresh water drain". The only valve I can find on my camper is labeled "low point drain". The manual also indicates that there are two more low point drains but I can't find them either. I am using the low point to drain my fresh water tank. Anyone know where they hid the one labeled "fresh water drain?"

I believe that's it Rick. My TT says the same thing. "low point drain". That's what you're draining from the coach at the low point drain..fresh water.

In our FK we have two knobs in a rear compartment that are the low drains. The FW drain is poorly positioned on the side connected to a hose that runs in front of the rear driver wheels.

I have a melbourn 29d and fresh water drain is right under drivers side close to drivers door right off the tank itself. I have a problem with the pump not picking up and proving fresh water. I replaced the water pump but it seems to run backwards and build up air pressure in the pipes. Is there a backflow preventer or check valve on top of the fresh water tank that can stop up?

I found the two valves in the storage bin. What a crazy place to put them. I do not know if there is any kind of backflow preventer but there is a screen type filter on the input side of the pump itself.

Yup, those two and the one on the drivers side by the Genny.

Welcome to the forum.

It might be best to start a new topic in this 'Jayco Motorhome' area. Posting new questions in an existing topic (like Fresh water drain for a Greyhawk in this case) can get overlooked.

I'm new to this forum, too, but haven't needed to ask many questions... yet. There maybe guidelines somewhere, but I don't recall.

There a lots of helpful people on this site and will certainly try to help when they see your question.

It seems to me like our '12 31SS has a fresh water drain on the driver's side, just forward of the rear cargo door. The low point drains are on the passenger side, inside one of the storage compartments.

On my 33RLDS it was in a hidden compartment under the shower that I found by accident. Dealer didn't show me much as the dude didn't seem to know much.
