Fresh Water Drain

I have a 2015 Keystone Passport Ultralight 3220bh. I have not used it for the last 2 years and I had two questions (as the owners manual was pretty useless). #1.,are the two lines with the blue and red caps under the body the fresh water tank drains? #2., has anyone had issues with their slide outs not working after sitting? The rear slide worked just fine but the main living room slide didnít work at all.

Welcome to the forum

The two line with the caps are the "low point" drains. They only empty the water out of the system and NOT the fresh tank. There should be another single hose hanging down or maybe a valve on the bottom of the fresh tank itself. You may need to figure out where the tank is located and then lay onderneath, It IS somewhere underneath,

As far as the slide goes, what type of slide is it?

The red and blue lines are low point drains for the system. The fresh water tank has a white 1/2" drain at the base of the tank.
Is your battery fully charged or are you on shore power?

Edit: Slow typing. What chuckster said.

There are THREE drains under your trailer. Two (usually close together) are the "low point drains" for the hot and cold water lines". The third one will be under the fresh water tank and will have either a cap or a valve on it. It is the fresh water tank drain.

As for your slides, it's hard to say whether not using them for a couple years would damage the mechanical components (motor, ram, gear sets, cables, pulleys, etc) but it's a "sure bet" that the rubber seals have become brittle (not easily bendable) and possibly adhered to the sidewalls and top of the slide. If the slides are in the travel position (inside the RV) you might want to go inside and use a paint stir stick or a similar device to push the seals away from the sidewall to make sure they aren't "stuck to the sides". While doing that, check any cables, pulleys and wiring to the motor for any visible damage, corrosion or other signs of failure.

Make sure you have a fully charged battery in the trailer before attempting to move the slides. A partially charged or defective battery will cause the motor to overheat and possibly do more harm than good.

The underside is sealed for all season camping. I only found the grey and black water drain as well as the 2 drains mentioned before. As for the slide out is is a cable slide.

We had both batteries freshly charged and we hooked up to shore power via a 110 converter. The smaller rear slide worked fine but the front slide we didn’t even hear the motor engage.

Refer to JRTJH's post.
May also be a circuit breaker mounted on the trailer tongue.
