HELP! Where's the low point drain on 2019 3820FK

Folks I've been searching stem to stern on this rig for the low point drain and all I find is a 4" hose pigtail hanging from the bottom of the back side of the rig, but now valve anywhere that I can see. Is it hidden behind the undercarriage panels or something? Any insight on this topic is appreciated. As usual, the dealer told me to call back on a week day and schedule an appointment to bring it in. Arrrggg...

It is very helpful to know the year and model of your Montana. But I will guess you have a fairly recent year and the low point drains are right there in the right wall of the convenience center. There should be a red and blue line each with a twist valve. Dem be its.

lashcraft,

Your 4 in hose at the back is your fresh water tank drain. It just has a screw off cap. If you are trying to winterize there is more involved than simply opening the low point drains. Several good threads here on winterizing.

As carl n Susan stated, it will on on your convenience center wall, right hand side as you look into it. Red and Blue lines with silver handled twist valves on them, they also drain thru that floor to the ground.

Thanks everyone for the replies... The small hose hanging down at the back of the trailer is the fresh water drain line I was looking for. Turns out the factory never installed a cap which kept me looking for a valve. When to the hardware store and bought a ball valve and will use it to close that tank from here on. The blue and red pex lines are drains for the plumbing but not the fresh tank, and my aim is to sanitize this tank because we'll be boondocking over the Christmas holiday... Bad timing, but its an adventure.

So you wasn't looking for the LOW POINT after all. Glad you found what you wanted anyways!

Larry-- Are you seriously going to be boondocking over the Christmas Holiday? Sure hope it's in a warmer climate than where you're from! Glad you found your fresh water drain. A lot of the salesmen that sell the units don't even know what it is or where it is. Good luck in your boondocking adventure.

Not really boondocking, but staying in a park in KY whose water is already shut down as are sewers...

What park, if I may ask? We have wanted to head down your way this summer to check out some of the camping. We live in Central Ohio. What area would you recommend?

We're visiting family for Xmas in northern KY, and http://www.oakcreekcampground.com/ seems the best option for the holidays. No other reccomendations... first time.

Don't know what part of Kentucky but when traveling north on I65 we stop at Grandma"s in Shepherdsville just south of Louisville. Nice stop and visit Churchill Downs and Louisville Slugger.
