Remote Fresh Tank Drain

I am brand new to Jaycos. I've owned an Outback TT for 9 years. On my Outback, I installed a fresh tank drain plug with an elbow, then used PEX tubing to run a line to the edge of the trailer and put a plastic ball valve on the end so I could just reach under the trailer and turn the valve, instead of crawling beneath the trailer and removing the plug to drain the tank each time I was done camping.

Is this already done on a Jay Flight 32RLDS Elite? (I haven't picked it up yet, so I need to know if I have to get the parts for this mod, if need be.)

Also - this trailer has two 40-gallon fresh water tanks. There's only one fill tube, but are there two drains?

thanks folks!

As far as I know, All Jay Flight models have a fresh water drain valve. My 26BHS has one. One issue you might run into is water coming out of the overflow tubes while driving. I'm about to put valves on mine so I can close them during transport. Just make sure to open them while filling and using.

Congratulations on the new trailer and welcome to the forum.

You could call the dealer about this. You will be doing a PDI and maybe the tech could help you with this at that time.

Mine has 2 40 gallon tanks as well. They are plumbed to act as one tank. That is to say there is a large hose connecting the two tanks at the bottom, so they will equalize when filled.

Both tanks have their own drain with valve attached and both have their own "breather" or overflow hoses in the top, but there is only one fill spout.

Thanks Camper Bob! That's good news! I'm sure they will show me that on the PDI. I pick it up a week from tomorrow! Hope the weather stays warm, now I'm REALLY itching to get out camping!!!
