Rear Low Point Drains in 2016 26BH??

Just a quick question, what is the low point drains for that come out the rear of the unit for? There is a sticker on the rear wall behind the spare tire. The drains don't have valves like the two fresh water drains on the drivers side if the unit. See pictures below. As always thank you in advance for your help.

They allow you to drain the plumbing lines.

When I had a 26BH the valves to open the low point where under the bunk bed, near the water heater and water heater bypass plumbing.

I winterize with compressed air, so the low point drains are critical in that process.

Go underneath the rear bunk into the storage area and you will see the water lines running down through the floor to those tubes. There should be a T handle on each one. If you pull up on the T, the valve opens, allowing all the water in your pipes to drain. If you open the pressure relief valve on the water heater (allow air in) this will eventually drain too. I do this every time I finish camping. Open up all your faucets as well when draining to allow air to flow into the pipes and allow the water to drain out.

Great! Thank you all for the help. I will try and get out there tonight to check it out. I know there are valves under the bunk, but did not realize they pulled out too.

Ok, just emptied out the storage area under the bottom bunk and I now see the "T" handle valves for the rear low point drains as mentioned. They were not the valves that I was thinking of, which were the bypass valves. So everything makes sense now! Again, thank you for the help! I will definitely be using these now that I know that they are there.

Yep, I just found those last weekend on our 28BHBE. They are under the bathroom sink in our trailer. I winterized it last year without using them because I didnt know they were even there.
