Glad I don't have an AS, again (there are some things I really like). Drain valves on mine are in kitchen cabinet. Fresh water just off of tank and far from tires. Almost shielded. In the older versions, behind exterior access door. That said, the city water connection on one of the old ones was just in front of tires.

These companies did study each other. Frustrating that they didn't all use the best approach after one or the other introduced it. I could list differences and we'd all know the better one.

Nice set of posts. Bookmarked.

Wow! A lot of work. Mine broke when hit by a stone thrown by the tire while traveling to AK. Made a quick fix with plumbers' caulk pushed into the broken stub of the plastic valve. Given the requirement to cut an access in the galvanized pan to replace the broken valve, I decided to see how long the caulk lasted. So far it's been 4 years and all is well. I use the pump to empty the fresh water tank when winterizing w/o problem. Ty

When mine broke, I took it to the Airstream dealer in Albuquerque, NM and had them fix it. Less than $100. Money well spent in my opinion.
