Question mystery drain valves

Need help locating the 3 drain valves on my 1985 Excella 32 ft. road side center bath? The manual indicates three valves of which I yet to locate. There is a small T-handle just off the pressure reg. line. But it only turns and with no water flow at all. I’ve considered blowing air through the lines and then just adding antifreeze through the city water hookup but not sure this will fill the water lines at the level of the 3 mystery valves.

Thanks for any input on this!

Your best bet is to buy a RV Pump Converter Winterizing Kit. This is the easy and practical way to fill the water lines in your RV with antifreeze. The kit installs before entering the water pump and allows you to use your pump to draw anti-freeze from the bottle to winterize your system. Does your trailer have the water heater-by-pass kit?

No I wish the hot water tank did have the by-pass. I've considered installing one but I would have to remove the mattress and the plywood under the dbl bed to install it and then every spring and fall to open and or close it.
I know 7 gal. vs 2 gal. to do the winterizing.

I have a spare 12 volt pump rigged up to pump anti. in from the city water hook up hopfully this will fill all the lines once the hot water tank is full.

Run some through the fresh water tank and your pump also.

Look underneath for openings in the skin, that should help locate the drain valves.
