Look behind any small panel covers that are screwed in place in the basement.

My 2012 HT 26.5 RLS has the approximate location of the low point drains marked on the FW. The rear one, for the fresh water tank is behind the wheels on the driver side of the trailer and the front ones are on the passenger side right next to the pass-through opening. On mine, I have to remove a little "door" to get inside to open the low point drains.

Same on my 2013 eagle. I thought having to use screws to attach the little 6" by 6" cover too much, and since the wall has some felt like covering, just put a few pieces of sticky back velcro on it.
The actual hoses were short enough to be a bit above the siding. I replaced both with slightly longer so as to run out without wetting down behind the siding, andvwhile that far into it, replaced the plastic valves with quarter turn brass.

I did basically the same. My low point drains are behind the basement wall, with an access cover with two screws. I just leave the screws out and the cover will stay in place pushed behind the carpet a little. I also added a second set of valves on the drain lines to extend the lines below the aluminum siding. Second set of valves because sometimes the original set does not close properly.

I also got tired of having to squat down and try to see the fresh water tank overflow hoses, to avoid starting the siphon. I used pex fittings to combine both into ine run of tubing, routing it to just below the FW fill, where I installed another brass quarter turn valve. Now its easy to know when full, and shut the valve, drive to sute, and open the valve back up once a little water has been used.
I carry pex fittings, crimp tool and some tubing on board.
