269 FBS Eagle - Looking for low point drains

Ok Gang...

This happens to be a mystery to me. On the driver side of the TT is to labels to indicate the low point drain under the TT. If you to crawl under and look you see the tubing sticking out of the floor.

Now there is one in the bathroom under the sink that I found...



But where is the drain in the Kitchen area

I've looked and looked and just can't seem to find the ones in the kitchen area... Can some help me find them?

I have a 2000 Jayco Eagle brochure that shows the floor plans for all the Eagle models. However the closest model I can find to what you describe as a 269 FBS is for a 269 RD which is a fifth wheel. Then I found the picture you posted and the saw that your RV is clearly a 296 FBS travel trailer. Obviously, you must have transposed the last two digits.

With that said, and looking at the 296's floor plan, looking toward the rear of the TT it shows a pantry in the right corner. does the pantry storage area go all the way to the floor? Unfortunately, floor plans don't show you where the furnace, HWT, etc, are located. But, if I had to guess, the drain valves might be in there, possibly under the bottom shelf if the storage area doesn't go all the way to the floor. If the bottom shelf is fixed, then the front panel below the pantry's door(s) gets removed somehow. I'm also going to guess that your HWT tank is either in there or in the wardrobe compartment that's opposite the bathroom.

Where's your fresh water tank and water pump on that model? On my 266 FBS, they're under the bed. However, I have a 36 gallon tank and the 296 FBS was supposed to have a 50. I say "supposed" because in the brochure many of the specifications for the 296 (and only the 296) were marked as estimated. I have to presume this was because the 296 was a new model that year and Jayco didn't have all the actual specifacations when the brochure went to press.

Yeah but the funny part is the side of the coach is maked for 2 low point drains and the tubes are even present in the rear of the TT just can't find the valves...

Thanks for the additional pics!

That aqua & white striped hose is the water filler hose for the fresh water tank. This means your fresh water tank is in the rear of the TT. It also appears that your fresh water tank is below the floor. You didn't say how many are tubes are exiting through the bottom of the rear of the coach, but there should be two for the fresh water tank- one (with a valve) for draining it and one that serves as an overflow/vent. On my 266 FBS, the black holding tank occupies this area as my bathroom is in the rear.

Do you know where your water pump is located? If it's setup similar to the way my water pump is, the hose that gets inserted into the RV anti-freeze jug for pumping it through the water lines should be close by.

According to my 2000 Jayco Eagle Brochure, a water heater bypass kit and winterization kit was standard equipment on all Eagles.

For what it's worth, below is a picture of the water pump, front drain valves, fresh water tank and winterization kit on my 266. You can see a little bit of the "pink stuff" in the clear vinyl hose that gets inserted into the RV anti-freeze bottle. You can also see the aqua & white water filler hose that is connected to the upper corner of the fresh water tank. On my TT, there are three drain hoses exiting in this area. One for the water line, one for the fresh water tank and one for the overflow/vent on the fresh water tank.



At this point, it might be worth a call to Jayco's customer support. I'm sure they can easily provide the definitive answer as to where all your drain valves are and how to gain access them.

Running down that path already... When you call Jayco make sure you got the serial number of your trailer handy... (Just let everyone know!)

I gave Jayco Tech's a call and they are stumped... The female tech I talk to couldn't find it in the plans.

As for the low point drain in the rear there is 2 tube poked out the fresh water tank cover right where the label shows it on the side of the coach...

They are suppose to give me a call back once they figure out whats going on...

Ok, let's try this. When you look under the kitchen area lable is the fresh water tank drain there? If there is the drain c-o-c-k and tubes hanging down, the tubes are the overflow for the tank and the drain c-o-c-k is considered the low point drain (kinda dumb, but that's the way they have always done it).

The tubes and label in the back are probably the ones you are looking for. Directly above them at floor level should be 2 push/pull type valves. Sometimes they are well hidden and hard to find.

The tubes to the left of the tank drain are the overflow according to the plumbing diagram. The actual Low Points are the ones to the bathroom.
