    Fresh water drain.

    Didn't like crawling under to open the fresh water drain, so here is what I did with instructions.
    Parts needed: 10" section of 1/2" PEX tubing, PEX crimp rings, 1/4x20x2.5" J-hook w/2 nuts & lock washers and a velcro strap.
    Cut off the short tube and valve used at the drain by cutting off the PEX ring. Turn thr T tword the front and insert the new tubing and crimp ring. Cut the new tubing where you want the valve to be. Remove the old valve and install to the new end. Drill 1/4" hole through the edge of the cross member and install the J-hook for the new tube to rest in. Use a strap to make sure the new valve and tubeing can't bounce 0ut of the J-hook unless you want it out and lowered to drain.
    Now it is easy to lower and open the valve which is just under the street side of the battery box.

    I just open all the faucets and then dump the grey tank. A little slower but don't have to crawl under the rig to open a drain valve. It's good to stop before completely empty or you may harm to water pump.
