Default Red & blue Low Point Valves under the Fun Finder

We are winterizing our fun finder for the first time. We watched the video on the Cruiser website. It states that there should be a red and blue low point valve underneath the trailer and you unscrew them and they drain all the water from the inside the trailer. Now our problem is, we do not see these valves under our trailer. Anyone have any idea what we need to do?

I have a different model so things may not be the same. What I have are two hoses (pex hose) sticking through the bottom barrier. One of the hoses is blue, one of the hoses is red both with a black cap. They come out of the barrier close to the middle (side to side) about two feet behind the rear axle. I just take off the caps to drain them.

Our forum has had this same question before. I recall one responder finally finding the drain lines covered by the black underbelly sheet found on many newer models rather than protruding through it as most of us have. I believe the best way to start is to identify where your fresh water pump is located(on many models it is located under the bed by lifting a plywood lid. From there you can probably see the blue and red pex lines which pierce downward, through the floor.

On the 214WSD, they are just in front of the rear bumper, under the trailer, almost directly under the shower.

At the risk of sounding repetitious, SHUT UP...

If you were a small child, I would have to say BE QUIET, but you're not, so I won't!
Now, let me go turn the heat up a notch...

Oh, so it's like living in the freezer? Who'd want that?

Ok, you know summer - when the minute you walk out the door into the blazing sun and sweat starts dripping down your back.

Fall is nice, except when it rains every weekend.

Don't forget spring - when the wind never stops blowing.

Then there's winter - that wonderful time of year where you can enjoy being outside, with cool, crisp mornings and warm afternoons.

Beats living in an oven with high humidity!

Besides, being born/raised in the upper midwest, the changing seasons are lovely, the snow is beautiful, and one gets to enjoy spring, summer, winter and fall.

I spent a year in SE Asia ~ hot and humid is NOT favored.

I totally love the changing seasons and remember, you can only take off so much to get cool.

That is when you step outside and it feels like you stepped into a sauna.

Heh. For the last six summers I travel with the trailer from mid-May through at least the first week of August. A couple of those years I went all the way to Labor Day.

Yeah, I'm familiar with heat and humidity.

Hey, I've been to AZ in July. I know why every old western shows a dried up water hole with a skeleton next to it.

That why we say - "but it's a dry heat!"

Yea, I hear that from folks that 'winter' in Arizona but in reality, 120 degrees F is still 120 degrees F be it outside or in the oven ~ just like -20 F is -20 F be it outside or in a deep freeze.

Anyway, that is my opinion.
