Need help finding fresh water drain.

We have a 2012 Jayco Eagle Super lite HT 5th wheel with a full winterized package so it's enclosed underneath with an insulation panel. We would like to know how to drain the fresh water tank without running water through the camper faucets. We could run the pump and drain it through the sinks but it makes sense that there should be some sort of drain hose or valve under the camper. We just can't seem to find one. Does anyone have any suggestions where it might be located on our particular camper?

Look behind the rear tandem wheels. Will usually be there and inside the IBeam frame
Most of fresh water tanks on our trailers have been there.

On the never eagle htís (or at least my model) there are 2 drains. One is in the back of the trailer, the other is in an access hatch in the basement behind the docking station on the drivers side. Look for something around your water pump and a low point under the kitchen. I have an island in mine so itís on the passenger side rear which is a bit different.

Thanks for the info, it indeed was (what was left of it) just behind the rear passenger side tires. So this is why we couldn't figure out how to drain fresh water tank, there was NO valve just a tube that made it appear to be a low point drain. Especially since it was right below the sticker for the low point drain! So why wouldn't water just empty out with nothing to stop it even after camping and driving for miles? Lots of mud all the way up the tube!!! Figured something had to be missing, found the broken bracket, stuck rod up the tube. Problem solved, stuck a rod up the tube and wiggled it till boom the water started to flow! And now we know every nook and cranny inside and out and what is hidden where after looking for a non existent valve that we will soon be replaced and the tank sanitized in the spring! Apparently it had been broken off previous to our purchasing the RV and the bracket tucked up to the underbelly.

Our freshwater drain is there behind the axles on passenger side like many others report here. It was just labelled as a low-point drain. Drove me crazy at the first sanitization.

Glad to hear you found the drain but sorry to hear it’s broken. I think I’ve seen valves like you will need at RV parts places. Check Amazon and etrailer too.
As for it being labeled “low point drain”, it kinda is. It’s probably connected to the FW tank at or near (ie: the bottom) of the lowest point on the tank.
Enjoy your HT and many “drama free” miles!
