I have just aquired a 1979 Trillium Jubilee Model in excellant condition. It is like the front bunk 4500 model.
I cannot find the drain valve for the water tank.
I have looked under the trailer and under the seats. There are no access plates or openings into the area under the floor where the tank is.
Any help would be appreciated.

John

It's the fresh water tank. I guess it does not have a drain.
Thanks Joe

I had a 74 Trillium before I got my Casita. It had a water tank under the seat on the driver's side. The drain was at the far end of the tank, near the rear wall. I ran a line from this drain, leaving it open, and added a new drain on the frame exterior. This was much easier to use.

The tank on my 4500 is inside, under the table/bunk. There is a about a six inch piece of plywood hinged to give access to the inside. The drain is on the right side (looking at the back of the trailer) very near the front of the tank. It should have a drain through the floor. As I remember the vave was hard to work. Be careful not to break it out of the tank.

i have a 13ft 1976'er. My water tank is under the dinette seat on the 'passenger' side. the vlalve shut off should be on the left hand side. had to replace as brittle and wouldn't turn. didn't cost much. have a look under the trailer around this area. should have a rubber hose there that empties it. hope this helps. maybe yours needs replacing if you cant see it
