Ok, call me a rookie!

Does anyone know where the low point drains and fresh water tank drains are on a 2019 Chateau 31E? For the life of me I can't find them and I don't remember the dealer pointing them out on the walk through.
The manual is less than helpful as it could reference any Thor motorhome. My Winnebago was specific to my model number, and I sure miss that convenience.
Thanks!

The low point drains are usually by the water pump. If you can't find it listen to the pump noise and then look for a panel held on with screws instead of staples (screws you can remove, staples you can't--trust me on that).

The fresh water tank drain will be near the tank (which is usually near the pump--it is likely that will be behind the same panel).

Looking at your floorplan: I would guess they are below the bed, or under the bathroom sink.

I will check there, thanks! Didn't think they would be in a place I needed tools to get to. My old one was a little easier to get to.

There probably is a panel facing upward, under the bed.

I found they could be anywhere. In my Vegas they are on the other side of the coach underneath a drawer. The only way I found them was to crawl under the coach and look for the two hoses exiting out the bottom.

I think Thor send out Gremlins in the middle of the night and changes this stuff so we'll never find them.

That about sums it up! I'll crawl under when I get home and look for drains! It's nice to know Thor is consistently inconsistent!

FYI - we had a 31L. There were drains under the bed but we also found Drains behind the drawer under the stove. Doesn’t mean you have them there but you might check.

Are they related to the "Tool Fairies", that always swipe the tool that I just put down?

I gave up years ago on the silent statement we make to ourselves...."I'm gonna put this here so I'll remember where it is when I need it again", as we head to the hardware store to buy another one...just before we find the first one we were looking for.
