Winterizing 27n

I am winterizing my new to me 2015 Itasca 27n sunstar. I drained the water using the drain in the water filling compartment and noticed the drain goes in the side so all the water does not drain out. I found another drain on the other side and with the pump on seemed to get more out. The manuel refers to a drain jnder the bed which i see no sighn of. Am i missing another water tank drain somewhere? Or do the two I refer to do a good enough job? Appreciate the belp and suggestions other 27n owners can give me around this pricedure

Make sure water heater is off

Make sure water pump is off

Tag both water heater switches - " DO NOT OPERATE - WINTERIZED " You will damage your hot water heater and perhaps the water lines connected to it if you turn on heater without any water in it.

Remove the shower head hose at the faucet end and let the hose hang down to the shower base so the water can drain out of the hose

Open all the hot and cold water faucets inside

Remove the water heater drain plug - leave off for winter

Remove the outside shower & hose at the faucet end

Open the hot and cold outside shower faucets

Open the water tank drain valve behind the shower faucets

Go inside and hold down the flush lever on the toilet a few seconds

Open the door to the water tank compartment and open the drain valve by the water pump

Remove the debris filter cover on the inlet side of the water pump - leave off for winter

Open the door behind it and remove the metal cover above the water heater (5 screws)

Operate the drain valve behind the water heater

Operate the bypass valve behind the water heater

Go back around to the water compartment and push in the button on the fresh water fill valve
and hold until water stops running out
