Snow Socks and how to drain fresh water tank
 
I am a new-bee here. I have a 2014 Airstream/sprinter Interstate, on a 2013 Mercedes chassis. I blew out the water system and added antifreeze recommended by the forums. Now I need to empty Fresh Water Tank and canít seem to find it (thought it was up front) and how to drain it.
Also I live in CO and plan to travel South in Jan,any recommendation on snow socks if traction law is in effect

Welcome to the forum Jasper14!

I live in a "no Snow zone", well, we've actually had two nice 5" snows in the past 15 years. Never a driving issue. Probably no snow socks needed if you're South of Dallas, especially at lower elevations.

As for your drain question, we have many member with your model and year who will be along shortly to answer that question.

All I can tell you after having towed 3 trailers through Colorado in December, April, and October.... If the weather is looking bad stay put and don't go, wait til it clears...unless you like the "adventure of winter driving and all that goes with it". Socks or not on your rig if it isn't mandated by work then don't risk it. I personally had a trailer try to drag me side wise down the interstate west of Cheyenne...I saw a motorcycle group in May stuck in ice at passes in late May waiting for tow trucks to take them back where they came from.

As far as snow socks on the rig....why risk it? Plan your trip and figure if it gets nasty we stay a day longer til it clears up. It might make your trip more fun?

If yours is like my 2013 EXT the fresh water tank is on the drivers side, forward of the macerator. It is whitish in color, somewhat translucent. Drain is on the bottom (obviously), towards to front. Be careful not to cross-thread the plastic drain plug into the plastic tank.
