FResh water drain valves on 27fb FC

Where are they? Im such a noob and I cannot find pictures on the web or videos.

Do I even need to drain the fresh water and the water heater system if I keep the unit heated via the furnace at nights and leave the water heater ON.

My unit is in northern Nevada and I am heading to St. George in Mid November. Weather here is very crazy with huge temperature changes in the High Intermountain desert. From now(late Sept) to our departure to st. George we will not be needing to use fresh water or septic systems, we will just be sleeping in the RV.

The fresh water drain is a white plastic valve on the curb side behind the front wheel. Rotate the lever on the valve 180 degrees - in other words not just to align the handle with the tube, all the way.

We use the trailer on and off year round so we have always have fresh water in the trailer. I'm fortunate to have power available where I store it so our furnace is set to 40. If you search the forum you'll find many that have no trouble in very cold weather as long as you use the furnace.
