Water drains on 2000 28 prep series

So we bought a used camper and we love it. It's a 2000 Crossroads 28 Prep Series that is in great condition. We've camped at least once a month this year, now we are trying to winterize it and can't find the drains. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where they might be? The camper is an all weather camper so seeing everything on the underside is out. Appreciate any help we can get.

They call most of the campers "all weather". Mine is also enclosed on the bottom.
If you look close you should see a pex tube coming out the bottom in the area of where the water tank is. That would be the tank drain. Also there should be two more coming out the bottom some place that will be the low point drains.
You will have to get underneath and do a good, inspection.

Found Something

I got underneath it today and I did find 3 pipes coming out of the bottom. It looks to be under the bed area. There are no valves on them. I will have to unload the storage area to see if there is an access there.

There were no caps, but it wasn't hard to figure out that where they stuck out was under the bed. We had to empty the storage area and pulled up a panel and found the drain valves, the freshwater tank and the pump (which we didn't know was there). So I can finish up winterizing tomorrow. Thanks for the help.

Interesting setup, could come in handy being that easy to get to the fresh tank. Have fun winterizing, did my Saturday, drained the fresh water tank, water heater and opened the low point drains . Also turned off the A/C.

Actually, that's a very nice setup, in that the water is shutoff inside the cabin, where, even during cold weather camping, the temps are warmer. Thus, you can camp in the fall when it's nice during the day, but freezing at night. As long as you keep the furnace or electric heater on, which I presume you would for your own comfort.
