draining fresh water tank

I have a 2013 Freedom Elite 21c and trying to drain the fresh water tanks is like watching paint dry. Any idea on how to speed things up? Thanks.

Use the outside shower and turn the pump on.

What he said above.

You will want to turn the water pump once once its empty - lt will want to run continuously looking for water to pump.

The WP needs water to keep it cool. So prolong use will shorten its life or damage it.

Open the fresh water fill cap where you fill the fresh water into the tank . That will allow air to help drain your tank .

You just need to invite some buddies over for a beer-drinkin' card game!
It'll help you pass the time...
