Well, RFP, please let us know if you actually have two low-point drain valves, in addition to the side mounted tank drain valve. It would be good to close the loop on your original question.

Okie dokie... Here's what I found: Under the trailer there are only the two drain 'spigots' shown in my first post's photo. I can't find any other drain/spigot other than those two outside the shell.

However, inside the rear storage compartment - to the far right of the door - there are two obvious drain valves... one white PEX the other red PEX. Both exit the shell through the floor and are easily seen under the trailer.

So, I guess that I'm left to believe that there are three 'low point drains' ... two inside the storage compartment and one at the fresh water tank.

Go to the Airstream website and send them an email and tell them what you found and to have them clarify.

Airstreams are a lot more complicated than our Casitas.

I also have 3 low point drains, but two are under the trailer. The third is in the outside storage locker. Airstream told me the one in the locker is for a portion of the hot water system that the low points would not drain. Of course I also have the plastic tank drain under the trailer between the wheels.

We have a 2012 16' Bambi. One of our low point drain valves has broken off. Has anyone experienced or repaired this? Thanks.
