freshwater drainage?

Just filled my 1974 argosy trailer with fresh water & bleach to clean out the plumbing. DC pump works great, etc. but how do I drain the freshwater tank without running all of the water through the graywater system? There is what looks like a drain located directly in front of the tank, but I can't get it to open & when I look under the trailer, I don't see the hose where it would presumably drain out of.... any advice would be helpful. (The first of many questions to come )

On mine there is a drain between the axles on the road side. Not to hard to reach. Sal.

Find the main water feed line from the tank to the pump....its a short one normally. That line probably will split to two of those valves will be the drain.
(Remember now, I am the one who flooded my trailer last week with those same two valves)

Try again.

When you say you can't drain the tank; Is it that nothing comes out when you turn the handle on the valve to drain it? If you can turn the valve handle and you have turned it and nothing comes out, try turning it the other way. The valve on the tank in my '74 will only drain when the valve is in that position.
