1995 Eagle 210 SL Fresh wtare drain

Recently acquired this trailer and I need help locating the correct valve to turn. I can not determine how to drain fresh water tank. I know its not rocket science but I am stumped. Any help appreciated.

My camper has 3 "drain valves", two that are long and slender with "T's" on top and one mounted to the frame that has a clear plastic hose attached to it. The one with the clear plastic hose drains the fresh tank, the other 2 are low point drains that drain the plumbing system. Look along the frame of the camper to locate this valve. You should only be able to turn the tank drain 180 degrees. Turn it both ways and see if any water comes out. Hope this helps.

My 2004 unit has the same drain valve pictured in Rustic Eagle's post, and it is in the side of of fresh water tank. There are also two plastic hoses hanging from the tank, which are overflow tubes. Two other plastic tubes are located at the other end of the trailer, which are low point drain hoses for the interior plumbing. Your drain for the tank has to be at or near the bottom of the tank, so I suggest you just look all the way around it near the bottom, and you are bound to find it. Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the replies. I have the clear hose but still cant seem to get it to flow water. I will spend some more time this weekend looking. I will try to post some pics of my set up. One would think there is a valve some where. Also when I filled the freshwater all the way up it seemed it has some kind of overflow outlet. When it got to the top it drained out a little. Seemed a little odd but not sure if that is normal for this trailer. Otherwise everything appears to work just fine.

Found the drain. Its similar to low point pin drains, it was by inside by the tank but below the floor board in rear, made it hard to see. It drains slow but it works none the less.
