Happy owner!

Hi Everyone- We are Doug and Pam Pennington from Jacksonville, FL, proud owners of a 2015 Flying Cloud, our first trailer- avid tent campers in our younger days! We get excited just thinking about where we can go with our 'toaster', as our son calls the AS. We have learned so much from the AirForums- didn't know what we didn't know Having mostly done quick trips to state parks over the last year, we are parked now in Williston, FL, where we came to escape Hurricane Matthew. Fortunately, we just experienced light rain here, but had 2 large oaks fall in our back yard- 1 into our roof, 1 into our neighbor's yard- everything's good, tho!!! The irony of escaping Mother Nature INTO a trailer
For the first time, we put potable water into our tank, but cannot find the 'petcock valve' to drain the tank. Will be here a few more days and investigate further, but wondering if you have any ideas! Thank you all...

Congratulations and welcome! Glad you're safe too.

Tank drain pet cock is typically right under the tank. On my 28' it is on the lh side between and to the inside of the two wheels.

Look between the wheels on the street side, that's where the drain is on our 25' FC.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us. You should find a small white plastic petcock between the street side (left) wheels. It kind of hard to reach and can be difficult to deal with. I have found that the easiest way to drain the fresh water tank is to turn the pump on and use the outside shower.

We are in the far out (Central Time Zone) Panhandle. We came here from Jacksonville about 21 years ago.. Two of our grown sons are still there. The one in Ponte Vedra Beach came over here to avoid the storm. They just went back over there this morning.

Thank you

Thanks all- valve was right where you said it was, and I like the alternate way to drain the tank! We are true newbies ;-) SuEllyn and Brian, hope your son's property in PVB withstood the storm. Will be going back and forth btw Jax and Williston while debris removal and roof repair completed. Still no electricity but could have been MUCH worse.
