1976 Sovereign fresh water tank drain

I am new to both my 1976 Sovereign and forums. I am trying to find out how to drain the fresh water tank. I could really use the help because here in Kansas it is starting to freeze hard enough to become an issue.
Thanks for any help.

Run the 12 volt water pump until the water tank is empty. That's it.

There is no fresh water tank drain on my 77 Sovereign. I run the tank dry with my electric pump and then take out the filter and disconnect the pump input hose and stick it in the antifreeze bottle and pump the system full while opening various faucets and john.

Thanks. I thought about using the pump but was not sure if there was more to it. I had to change the water pump out and added a valved line for adding tank additives like antifreeze.

Thanks again to both dwightdi and Splitrock
