Water tank drain valve

Sorry to bring this question up but I cannot find the drain valve for the potable water tank at the left back of my 2020 Chateau. I have crawled underneath the chassis and found the two white pvc overflow sections sticking out but cannot find the drain valve. Appreciate anyoneís guidance.
Thanks
Braunski

Donít have your model but it has to be accessible and attached to the water tank. Itís probably under a seat or the bed wherever the tank is. The two white pipes probably are the hot and cold line drains and they too will have valves right above where the pipes stick out. If you totally canít find the tank drain you can open the line drains and let your water pump run until the tank is empty. Itís probably just about as fast anyway.

Are they where the tank is located? Or the pump? Or maybe just the low point drains. RV valves don't always look like valves. Sometimes they are a "pull to open/push to close) type valve with a ring in the end:

What tool do you use to mock up your pics with arrows, characters and such? Thx.

This one was already annotated from IRV2.

But I use a free capture program by Techsmith that was originally called Jing, but they have just replaced it with Techsmith Capture. It has built-in annotating capability such as arrows and text. You create a free account with Techsmith which allows you to save your capture to the web for direct sharing or you can save it to your PC and add it as an attachment.

Water valve

Just to close the loop on this I found the water valve behind a small access panel in the rear drivers side storage area. Seems crazy to have to undo 4 screws ( which will strip) to get to the drain valve. When we are back from our trip to Montana I will find a way ( or someone else to add a valve below the main floo for access from the outside.
Thanks for the comments
