What are these Valves for

What are these valves for.

On my 2010 Jay Feather 17 Ex-port, there are 2 valves on the floor under the refrigerator with water in them. These valves do not appear to be part of the p hot water bypass system, those valves are near the hot water and pump them selves.

When I winterized the camper these lines did fill with pink antifreeze and now that I am un winterizing everything seems good, but I would still like to understand what these are for and what position they should be in.

HELP Trey

They are your low port drains. When winterizing, open these up to drain the water out of your lines.

I see in the pic, that you still have RV antifreeze in your lines.

Yea - I just started to un-winerize it about an hour ago. - I did think they were low level drains and that make sense, but when I turn them nothing drains. maybe they are push/pull valves ?

Yes, push/pull.

I sure don't like the way Jayco used that metal strap to hold down the water lines, and/or the valves.

The ones on mine are under the rear bunk and they are pull up valves, not turning valves. They are low point drains.

OK - make perfect sense now and I just tested it and lines drained. What I found is if the valved are turned one way they will not pull open, but if you turn them 90 degrees, they pull open easily.

Now I will sleep much better tonight - thanks all for your help.
