Under the rear of your fiver is a drain line coming from the bottom of your fresh water tank. Just remove the end cap and let it drain unless your model has a manual valve on the hose end.

This post is meant to be humorous in a fashion ... here in the plains states you'll see all kinds of wild setups this time of year headed to Texas for the winter. This just seemed worthy of a photo.

leemedic … in reference to your dealers statement that there were no straps … just what was holding the tanks above the belly chloroplast? That stuff will hardly hold a twelve pack of bottled water.
