Newbie plumbing question

Hi,
My wife and I have just bought a nice used Jayflight 198rd, and I have a plumbing question. Under the wash basin cupboard in the bathroom I discovered these two water valves, could someone tell me what they are for please?

They look like low point drains for winterizing you pull up on them and it drains the water from your water lines .... you have to open hot and cold faucets to let them gravity drain .... anybody else can chime in if they wish to add

They are low point drains. They are used to drain the plumbing system for winterization. You open all faucets and then these valves to drain the system. They pull up to open them and push down to close them.

It appears they are in Orlando, FL... probably not familiar with winterizing.

Aha !
Thanks for the replies guys.
Winterizing? I understand the concept but here in Orlando it is sunny and 75 degrees today, however I shall file that information away just in case we ever go anywhere cold.

Trust me, you have no clue what "brutal" really is ! LOL 120 is brutal..but it is a dry heat, and once you get use to driving with oven mitts, it's not bad
