Unknown filter

OK - this newbie is still putting off dewinterizing the Cruiser Aire, but the wife and I are going to tackle it next weekend. Wish us luck. I still have not located the fresh water tank drain. I have found the two low point drains (red and blue) under the trailer. Also, was shown the two valves behind the water heater. I open both of these after getting the antifreeze out, right? (Not sure why there are two)....again newbie point.

New question from the newbie - we found a screen/mesh type filter in one of the kitchen drawers. Looks like it may go to the overhead fan on the stove or maybe some type of filter for the fridge. Anyone got any ideas?

I hound this site so much, you would think I would have found it by now. Not sure whay I would do without all your help.

The fresh water drain should be just below the water tank itself along one side. I glued a valve to mine because the factory just had a threaded cap.
Not sure about the mesh screen. Have not seen one for the fridge but if it is a metal filter it might go to the range hood.

X2 look for a hose with a cap. Sticking out from the underbelly. The valves you found behind the water heater 1 needs to be open, the one going into the bottom of the water heater and the other needs to be closed. The one in between the red and blue lines. This is the bypass. You do not want to bypass for normal use.

If the mesh screen is approx 6x6 inch square, it's for the range hood.

The filter may be the external range hood filter that fits beneath the outside vent cover to keep birds from nesting in there.
Mine was missing and guess who found a great place to have a family!

Goldy, post a picture. That would be a big help to decide what it is.
