Oh I found the valve all right!
Yesterday at lunch, the curiousity of finding the thing was killing me, so I ran over there at lunch time.
Sure enough, on the back side, or opposite of the door, between the two wheels, way up under there - was a white cap. Not a valve, a cap.
I reeeached and start screwing - out pours PINK! Probably from the previous owner winterizing it last year and me never un winterizing it. So I panic to screw it back on, which is hard now that my hand is soaked.
I wanted to get it back on because that was the whole purpose of emptying it - so I could fill it with antifreeze, right?
I had always known I could see about an inch or two of pink through the see-through blue of the fresh water tank, but at times I actually thought it was just a stain.
And I'm right that this is not enough in the tank to get moving with the pump right? or could I winterize from here?
I also took a rachet set from our local mechanic for the hot water heater outlet but it was too small. There was some pretty white teflon tape around the fittings too - fresh from just last year? Anyways, I have a bigger rachet set now and will try again, maybe tomorrow - today it was raining!
One more thing, I never hooked up the propane this year to anything. The tanks were empty and at one point I even removed them from the front because of a too close camp fire - Being a first timer and the camper being so old, the idea of having a pilot light near my rear as I sleep scares me
Oh and after all that - I hurry back to work and get a speeding ticket!!!
