2010 26E Fresh Water Drain

This past spring we purchased a 2010 Thor Fourwinds Class C Freedom Elite 26E. I would like to drain the fresh water tank but have been unable to locate the drain plug / spigot. The owners manual simply states "drain the..." and recommends having the MH winterized by a service tech but I'm sure that I could do it since I maintained our previous Class B Pleasureway. Any help is greatly appreciated.

My 28Z has a spigot on the driver's side at the bottom of the sidewall, near the shorepower inlet.

Thanks. I'm not familiar with a Z, but for mine behind the driver's door is all electrical; first the generator, then the bay for the shore power cord, then the batteries. Then rear wheels, gray holding tank and dump valves. The only fresh water used on the driver's side is outside shower and inside shower. I would think that the fresh water drain would be on the passenger side or center but have not located it. But then, I have not located the fresh water tank which I think would have been easy to see. Thanks again.

Never saw a 26E so it is merely guesswork on my part. For the freshwater tank, check under the bed and see if it is there. They are usually large enough that they can only go under the bed, dinette seating, sofa, etc.

Thanks. The bed sits over the cargo hold (I'll look again but I don't think it is there), and we have storage under both bench seats for the dinette, and alas no sofa in our model.

On my 28Z the cargo hold is in the back half of the bed, but the front half is where the fresh water tank is.

It might be that the fresh water drain - if you have one - simply drains out of the tank bottom, and the valve might be at the tank.

Found it. The fresh water tank is behind a panel under the restroom sink. The valves are located behind a panel under the oven. When I saw where the drain went thru the floor I looked forward of the passenger side rear tire and there it was. I must have looked right at it more than once and didn't see it... I guess I was expecting the tank and valve accessible from underneath. Thanks again.
