If there is no visible drain, I would run the tank dry using the, (sink/kitchen tap) and pump the remaining out with an inexpensive submersible pump.

Hi Paul,

Welcome to the forum. I’m not familiar with your particular motorhome, but if the pipe from the tank to the “little blue valve” is a flexible one then it may be as simple as unclipping the valve and lowering it to the ground so that more of the water can drain out.

Good luck with getting it sorted before the weather turns colder.


Regards,
John

If only I could think of an original, witty signature . . . this is where it would be . . .
