Vegas 25.1 low point drain

Hello

We are trying to drain and sanitize our fresh water tank. I have found several pictures and articles on the location for a 24.1 but have not been able to locate on our 25.1. Does anyone have any pictures or description of the low point drain location for a Vegas 25.1?

Thanks

John

We finally found the low point drain under the sink, behind the access panel. By removing the two screws, the access panel is hinged and we can get to the low point drain. Seems obvious now Now we just have to figure out how to get the tank to drain quicker.

Tank draining slowly seems to be a common thing with all the Axis/Vegas units.

When I'm in a hurry I simply open the low point drains and the tank drain and run the pump.

I use the outside shower to speed things up. Turn the pump on, open it up and let it go.

Low point drain location Vegas 25.2

I'm looking for the same thing on my Vegas 25.2 (2017). Manual leaves a bit to be desired in this area. Thanks in advance.

Looks like all models are in about the same place. My low point is directly in line and behind the passenger side rear tire. If you look in the wheel well, you may be able to see a blue pex tube sticking straight down.
That is where my low point drain comes out. Just in front of the rear tires on the passenger side, I can see the hot and cold (red and blue) tubes.

If you can find them underneath, it should give you a pretty good start inside.

Good luck!

I will give it a try.

Thanks!

I was told the drain on 25.2 was under the couch with the water tank. Is this correct, or fiction?

That makes sense. On my 25.1, the low point is directly next to the inside edge of the water heater. If you look at picture 2 above (with the access panel down), the white is the insulation on the water heater.

Actually the white in the picture is the plywood. However, the insulation is right behind to the left.

If the yellow flag is showing the breaker is open--yes that will prevent the genny from starting.

For the rest of you looking for your low point drains: Contact Thor and ask for the freshwater plumbing diagrams--it will clearly show where the low point drains are (while you are at it ask for all the other diagrams: waste plumbing, electrical, etc.).
You can ask via Thor's website:
