3 low point drains?

Hello all,i have tried to search for a answer to this but I gave up and figured I would just ask for help.I was blowing out trailer to do a temporary winterize since its getting real cold here at night and I am going to Hershey in 2 weeks and didn't wanna deal with flushing out lines,so anyway I have 3 low point drains,2 are valves and there is 2 pipes next to each other kinda under where the refrigerator is,they are siliconed in pretty good and don't seem to move,does anyone have any idea of what these 2 drains are for and if something should be coming out of them?

My guess: overflows from the fresh water tanks...

If they are hot and cold, try pulling up, not turning.

My low point drains for blowing out the lines are setup like Roadwarrior mentioned. I pull them up, blow out the lines, then push them back in.

On my 32BHDS there are also 2 hoses sticking out from under the enclosed underbelly right near my fresh water fill. On my TT they are overflow hoses for when I overfill my fresh water tank.
I know this because in the spring while sanitizing my water system I noticed water coming out of them when I left the garden hose in too long to fill my fresh water tank.

Both my 2007 Eagle and my 2015 White Hawk had 3 low point drains. The 2 that are together are for the hot and cold water lines. The one that is off by itself is the drain for the fresh water tank. On the 2007 the hot and cold drain valves were the pull to open type, but on the 2015 WH the valves are the turn 1/4 turn CCW to open type. Since the OP has a 2015 trailer, I will assume that his hot and cold valves are the turn to open type. It is easy to tell which type they are. The pull have a small flat handle, while the turn are a larger rounded handle.

My White Hawk also has 3 low point drains as described by RVer-Bill.
My 26BH had T-handles to pull or push located inside the trailer near the
hot water heater. This was located under the lower bunk bed in the rear.
I was a pain in the rear to have to crawl under the bunk to open and close them.

The low point drains on the White Hawk are clearly labeled on the lower body panel.

Ok so maybe these are over flow for fresh tank,they are siliconed in the underbelly pretty good so I cant see pushing up on them,per the spec sheet my fresh water tank is 82 gallons,unless it is 2 tanks combined then maybe both the lines are for each tank,they are open pipe with no type of connections on them,my other 2 low point drains are 1/4 turns valves.I never messed with fresh tank as the campgrounds I been to had water connections.I just wanna make sure im not missing some type of drain for winterize,Thanks for the replies

They sound like FW tank overflows. With 80 gallons, you probably have 2 FW tanks tied together.

However, on my Starcraft 235fb (Twin to Jayco 23fb), I have the following: Two turn valves for draining the FW tanks (one for each tank). Near these, there are the two overflow tubes for the FW tanks and these have no valves on them. BUT I have another set of two tubes (with no valves visible from the outside) at the rear of the camper under where the water heater is located. Opening up the storage compartment in that area, there are two of the "pull up" type valves located there. This is the low point drain for the water system. So in my case, there are 6 water tubes coming out of the bottom of the trailer. Two have visible valves and are to drain the FW tank, two have hidden valves and are the low point drain, and 2 are overflow tubes and have no valves at all. Good luck! It would be nice if the info for your trailer was in the manual, or if the dealer at least showed you where the stuff is located.

Yea I wish the manual for these were unit specific with more detail,kinda seems like they are generic for a few models with just basic info.The dealer did a good job walking me through but kinda pointed at the drains and didn't even notice them at the time.However they did miss the bunk room door had 1 screw holding it in instead of the 6 and half my cabinets the screws were never installed for shelves and lastly that my heater didn't work properly,keeps over temping.other than that I love my trailer
