Empty water tanks in Scamp

Know this has been asked before but cannot find answer. I'm winterizing for 3 months off road and parked outside. I watched scamp video but still do not see where water tank empties out. I turned the toggle on water tank as instructed and turned on all faucets whereby a small amount of water cme from faucets. I opened gray water valve and only tiny bit of water trickled out. Where is the drain spout ? Is there another one ? I turned on pumps as well but nothing. Ps. No way am I putting that de I we for Rvs in my scamp. Also is it good investment to buy a scamp cover for 159$?

There is a drain valve located at the bottom of the water tank on the side facing the sink . Turn the valve and the water will drain out a hose which goes through the floor to the outside . If nothing drains out shut the valve and check the hose , My drain hose was plugged one time from insects After clearing the hose reopen the valve and drain the tank

The hose comes out the bottom and the pitcock is turned to point 90 to the trailer. Either pointing directly towards the inside or the outside of the trailer.

Yes I know about pitcock and already did that. It's hose I don't see. Will go out and search for it again. As no water is under ir around trailer I am assuming either it us empty or hose is blocked.

The hose referred to is just a very short piece of tubing slipped over the outlet end of the drain valve to insure the water drains out of the trailer.
Sometimes it protrudes below the floor and sometimes it doesn't.
