Took the cap off of the drain tube for the fresh water tank on my 06 CF29RE Cruiser 5er, and nothing came out. I know there are a few gallons of water left in the tank, and I poured 3/4 of a gallon of anti-freeze in also, and nothing drained out. Am I missing a step somewhere? Is there a valve on that drain I have overlooked? I have owned this rig since new, but haven't winterized it before, as it was stored in a mine.
The drain doesn't come out on the bottom. It's in the sidewall of the tank. You can never totally get your tank empty. There is enough room for expansion so it shouldn't hurt anything.
I hate to tell you this, but it was a mistake to pour antifreeze in the tank. I don't know how you will ever get it all out short of dropping the tank so you can roll it around to flush it.

Thanks Old Farmer. I'm not too worried about getting the anti-freeze out. I can flush and drain it an unlimited amout of times next spring when the water is turned on again. I just wanted it as empty as possible to avoid cracking the tank.
I have a similar concern. First I was hoping that someone here could tell me on what side of the tank the drain was on so I could use the jacks to tilt the 5er and get more water out. My concern was the line from the tank to the pump. My guess is that I need to use the pump until only air comes out of that section. After that, pump the antifreeze in.
