Drain valve for what?

Let's try this again. This is obviously a drain valve, but from what? Inside the street-side forward storage compartment, next to the water heater, on my 2014 FLying Cloud 25 FB. Cant see where the line originates. The pex turns down just to the right of the valve and exits about 2" under the deck and is not capped. May be a low point drain. The owners manual has no plumbing diagrams and doesn't identify this valve specifically.

Looks like a low point drain. Make sure you open all your faucets when you pull it so everything can drain out.

Thumbs up

Yep...low point drain.

I found ours when I replaced the useless, (wet), carpets in all the storage compartments.

I contacted Ohio for exactly the same question about a month ago. It is a drain valve, but not a low point. They determined that the low point drain does not drain all of the water heater piping and this valve does, so they say.

The same thing occurred to me when I was trying to remember all(?) the tips given to us by the dealer when we picked up our trailer a couple of weeks ago. I regret being grumpy with the new AS but I sure expected a company selling a rig for this kind of money to be more thorough with details.
