1977 airstream tradewind freshwater drain

there appears to be no drain for freshwater tank on the trailer and lots of green slime is in filter before water pump. Any ideas to clean entire tank thoroughly.

Welcome fellow Canadian and 1977 Tradewind owner! All I can suggest running lots of water through and a bleach solution to sterilize and then more flushing after.

If you need a 1977 service manual and owners manual, I can burn one on CD and mail it to you.

My '77 Excella 500 31' did not have a fresh water drain either. You have to use the on board fresh water pump to pump it out. What a pain so I carried 5 gallon buckets of fresh water.
