You open LPD's first to empty water lines. Drain fresh water tank next. When empty, close these 3 valves and begin winterizing (compressed air to blow out lines and run rv antifreeze into all lines and drains. Would recommend you watch Youtube videos on how winterize.

Are you also asking where they are? I found it odd on my 2013 Eagle that they call the fresh tank drains "low point drains", not "fresh water drain". What I would call low point drains would be at the lowest point in the plumbing system. Mine are behind a small cover in the cargo area. There are two quarter turn and pull up valves that dump whatever is remaining in the pipes onto the ground.

From what I'm told here, Jayco is very good about responding to requests for schematics, wiring and/or plumbing. Might try that route. Could need the info in the future.

We have two points with "low point" drains, one at the fresh water tank and two on the passenger side of the cargo bay as noted by Cosmik. I got tired of taking the two screws out of the little panel, and trying to get them back in the same holes, so I just put two mirror hangers, little ones, on the bottom and one on the top. Now when I wish to take the panel off, I just swivel the upper hanger to the side and remove the panel. Now, we'll see how long that set-up lasts, although I did attach them with little bolts and nuts to see if I could make them last longer.

In my x20e, the low point drains are located under a panel in the base of the bathroom sink cabinet.

If your 285 is like my 285RKS the low point drains are located in the right foward comprtment. They are opened by pulling straight up, not by turning.
