will atwood drain from cold intake

I just finished replumbing my trailer and put in a lowpoint drain which is also connected to the cold water supply line on my new 6 gal heater. I figured I could open a hot faucet (for venting) and drain the heater back out the intake. My brother said the only way you can drain this heater is through the plug on the front which is going to be a challenge with my old Bowen door which I worked hard to keep. Will my way do the job?

Depends on how your trailer's plumbing is routed. If the water can go from the lowest point, out of the trailer, then maybe you can open the overpressure vent in the top of the water heater, and it will be sucked out. But more likely, you will have to drain it through the bottom drain on the front.
