Low point drains

I was looking under my 2012 Sprinter 272BHS and didn't see any drains other than the single one for the fresh water tank. Any ideas where to look?

If you will use the search function and look back through some of the threads, there are pics of the low point drains. If your FW drain is a single piece of PEX with a cap on it hanging straight down from the coroplast, the low point drains will likely look the same except that there are two of them together. They might look like this:

Others have drain valves in the control center where all the other hookups are located.

They are there, you just have to look for them. They are generally on the same side of the trailer as the waste gates and the FW fill and drain.

I would also point out that this is one of those important things that the dealer should have shown you during the PDI. We hear a lot of horror stories about dealers not doing a decent job in this regard.

Mine are in the back above by the black and grey valves and below the hot water heater on my 2012 Sprinter.

Mine are actually on the curb side under the galley area. Keystone seems to like putting them there. They are going to look like the photo Steve posted, and in the case of my Outback, may be obscured by a wheel. You may have to lay on the ground to find them. Extending them to the side of the trailer and installing manual valves so you don't have to reach under the trailer every time is a worthwhile mod.

I'll dig a little deeper to find them. On my last trailer I installed shut off valves that had garden hose threads and a "Y" hose so you could mix the hot and cold. That worked great it you needed a hose for washing the camper, grill, etc. Thanks for the replies.

On my 2012 311BHS the water fill is on the right side by the door and the low points are directly below which is by the pump. They are tucked up high next to the frame between the outer skirt and the frame rail. Mine has an enclosed under belly so they are plumbed outside that. They should be fairly near the pump.

Found them! I was looking under the corogated plastic and not outside the frame rails. Thanks again for the advice.
