Potable water tank drain 94 Excella

Getting ready to winterize my new to me '94 Excella 34'. I have no books so am wondering if there is a drain on the fresh water tank. There appears to be 2 access panels underneath, one on each side of the tank cover. As it is a PITA to crawl under, I am wondering if anyone knows of the tank drain, and if so on which side. I have pumped out as much as the pump will pickup, but am concerned that there still could be enough in the tank to freeze and crack it. Thank you.

The tank drain should be centered on the tank on the curb side of the tank and accessible without removing anything.

reach in behind the forward wheel and and you should fit it. I it is a 1/4 turn valve.

I found the 2 hot and cold drain lines in the compartment forward of the wheel well as described. I was wondering if there is a drain at the borrom of the main water tank, as there are 2 access ports in the lower pan that are screwed on. Everything else all ready for the cold weather. Thank you HowieE!!!

Unless modified by a previous owner the drain valve should extend to the outside and like Howie mentioned operated by hand. If you don't see it between the curbside wheels you may want to remove the covers you mentioned and see what's up. I'll bet you a donut that it's there somewhere. Just gotta find it. They can be a bear to replace but something that many of us have undertaken. It's not rocket science but if you got large hands can be a challenge.

Found it!!! Thanks a lot everybody. Only got about a gallon out, so the pump sucks things almost dry. Ready for the -40 Canadian winter now.
