What do these valves do?

A PO installed a new kitchen counter unit that makes it very difficult to gain access to the fresh water tank connections. Today I removed a couple drawers so I could poke around a take a few pics. What do these three valves do? I assume one of these is the fresh water drain? Which one?

The one directly facing the camera in your second pic should be the fresh water tank drain. The other two are water system drains. You should have a couple in the rear of the trailer as well, and one inside the water heater compartment.

Thanks, Terry. I opened that valve and nothing happened and I know that tank has water in it. Perhaps, I didn't open it far enough. I'll try again.

What does it say by those pencil arrows on the subfloor? I also have 3 drain valves under the sink and has been a mystery on how to get watr tank to drain as it should.

We had a full tank of water when we picked up our "72 - had probably been in there well over a year (EW!). Nothing happened when we opened the drain, so Chris looked at the drain pipe under the trailer - plugged. He stuck something up there, and, yup, it drained- for over 4 hours!
Try checking to see if the drain is plugged!

Thanks, Kay. I'll try that. I opened that valve ALL THE WAY and nothing happened, so that will be the next thing I try.
