Low point drain plugs

Hi I have a 2021 Thor Freedom Elite 26HE and can't find the low point drain plugs anywhere. I have looked everywhere under it, under both benches and sink but can't seem to find them. Can someone point me in the right direction?

This thread, spec. #15 may be the answer...

Location of water tank drain

low point drain valves

Thanks, that looks like the one for potable water but still can't find the hot water low point drain valve. I did take out the plug and drain it but I would think there is a low point drain somewhere.

I had to contact Thor. My valves are hidden behind a panel under the kitchen sink. On the outside they don't hang down very far at all. It's not like the ones on all my TT's.

You will find 2 low point drains. 1 hot 1 cold. Both will have caps or valves on them . You will also find 1 FW tank drain and possibly a ventloverflow line.

My 30FE low points are under the bed next to the pump. I don't know the configuration of your unit, but maybe this helps.

Trying to winterize my 2019 Freedom Elite 26HE and can't find the low point drains. I found 2 pipes underneath that I think are the drains but I'm resisting taking measurements from the outside and transferring those measurements to the inside to find them that way. (Lying on my back on wet concrete is not my idea of fun!) Thor seems slow to respond to phone calls to their Customer Support line.

But a thought crossed my mind (it happens very occasionally!) The schematics from Thor show the drains between the water heater and the bathroom shower. Given that I'm going to pump anti-freeze through those lines until it comes out through the shower and bathroom faucets, won't the anti-freeze displace any water still in the pipes at the low points?

The other question is can I trust the Thor schematics? They show a water pump at the wrong place which doesn't give me a good feeling about them!

Freedom Elite HW low point drain

I have a 2021 Freedom Elite and couldn't find my hot water low point drain valve, neither could anyone else. I registered my FE with Thor at https://www.thormotorcoach.com/owner-resource/ and all the manuals for everything in your particular RV are there in PDF form. I found the manual for the HW tank and found out there is NO low point drain. It says to drain the tank by removing the tank plug, open the HW tank door on the side of the RV and you will see it. It also says there will be approximately 2 quarts of water remaining in the tank that won't hurt it if it freezes. To blow out those 2 quarts it has to be done through the blow off valve. So I guess the old saying still holds true; when all else fails read the directions!

My potable water drain is under the bench seat closest to the cab and the HW tank diverter valves are behind a panel under the kitchen sink. Good Luck!

Thanks. Yes I do have the pdfs and the plumbing schematic for the 2019 model year does show low point drains but there's nothing to say how to access them. I've assumed that since I can get anti-freeze coming out of the shower, bathroom faucets and toilet then I'm good to go as the anti-freeze will have flowed through the low points to get there.

I've contacted Thor through phone and their website and haven't received any response - it's been over a week!

I've emptied the HW tank but do need to get rid of any deposits still in there. I just bought a Camco wand to do that job.
