Default looking for newbie freeze help in Texas

Hi .... Ya'll have been wonderful but I need HELP!

I'm trying to drain my lowest level plumbing point in my 2009 X210WBS and can't find the drain lever. I found it a couple of years ago, but believe it or not ... can't find it now. Can anyone give me at least a quadrant to look for it? I found the fresh water "boondock" tank drain, (very poor plastic on that valve handle), but I can't find the low-level-supply drain ... and I've been under the chassis until my back is raw.

Is it maybe in the side door with the hot water heater cutoffs? That doesn't seem to be the lowest point below the bath tub, for example.

Any help would be appreciated.

Bertie.

Our 2008 FBR was under the sink. Look for two little stubs underneath. Sorry it’s so cold down there. We were 3 below this morning in northern Michigan. But yours is a newer different model. Good luck. Hopefully someone will know.

Okay, I finally found it ... "again". It is actually located under the piece of plywood access panel on the bottom of the side gas grill compartment. This is where the water heater and it's associated plumbing and valves are located. There are two plugs with metal rings on them, (one red for hot water, one blue for cold supply). You pull up on each plug (there is a spring type mechanism in them) to drain each and then push them back down to re-seat the plugs when the lines are drained.

Hopefully this will be helpful to other FF campers!

Thanks again for being so kind and considerate as to reply, Michigantraveler. Much obliged. ; =)
