    Does anyone know where this is located within alan Autotrail Navajo? We cannot find it and my husband has been through the hand book with no success.
    Thanks

    On most vans its a sink type plug in the bottom of the tank, you will have to unscrew the cover on the top of the tank and fish about a bit. They often have a chain attached to them, presumably to stop them staying too far when they have been removed. Have never seen an automatic tank drain valve personally.

    If memory serves on AutoTrail there is a "tap" on the end of a pipe outside the van not dissimilar to the grey waste drain.

    It's probably on the same side as the waste water drain down. Blue circular "tap" with bar across it and drain outlet below.
    The tap and pipe assembly can, on occasions, come loose fairly easily as it's a push fit supported by a spring clip so may have detached?

    Fresh water tank drain is behind the rear wheel on the drivers side clipped up behind the skirt. The heater tank is harder to find in the wardrobe under the false floor and right down behind the fire. Use a torch and look for the yellow valve - tip it vertical to open then open all your taps to drain down.
