Low point drains...

We have a 94 classic 34. I finally found the low point drains, which on our model are in the access hatch just forward of the closet in the head. The problem is that the compartment is so full of heating ducts that I can't reach them. I can see them, but can't get on them to turn the handle. Anyone have an idea about this?

Having said all that, I blew out our system with a small portable pancake compressor, like a contractor might use. Worked very well, because it has a built in regulator that I set for 50 psi. Even with the small tank, it would still blow well for 60-90 seconds before I had to let it pump up. Nice because I can do that procedure pretty much anywhere, running the compressor off the generator. It doesn't seem to take that much air if you do one faucet at a time.

Are you sure that's what you're looking at?

It would seem they would be more accessible.

Mine is outside and underneath, near the dump valves.

Yup...2 little valves with a plastic handle. Weird place for them, but the drains thru the belly pan correspond.

My '89 Excella had the plastic valves Tom describes before I installed PEX. They are awkward to open and often difficult to access. A hot / cold pair were under the kitchen sink and there was another under the bed for the city water line. My '02 Classic has them as Bob's photo shows.
