Hello - We are first time owners. Just purchased a 2001 Glendale and have it permanently set up on a lot with septic. Question is we can clearly see the drain release valve for the black water, but cannot find the one for the gray. We looked for a rod that maybe the handle may have fallen off, but did not see one. Any suggestions?

The first picture shows the main pipe that has the black water drain valve; the second is a closer look

Welcome to the forum.
In your pics, the first one doesn't show enough detail, but the 2nd looks to me as tho the valve that is visible is the 'failsafe' valve installed post-factory. I am not familiar with the Glendale (Titanium is the mfg?--Canadian company no longer in business?) but the smaller line in the 2nd pic is the gray water line. If there is no valve on it similar to the larger line, then the valve (and the original black tank valve) are located inside box that the lines are coming out of.
You are needing to do some more detective work inside the basement area to locate tanks/lines. Or first thing to do is get under the trailer where the lines come thru the box and see what the access possibilities there are.
Looking at the stain on the side where the fresh water enters, it appears it has been used for a long time as a stationary home, and had a constant leak, and the water is high in iron content.
Good luck, check back as you find things out and maybe need a little more help.

Thank you! So should we take down the under side of the camper to see if we see the drains/valves?

Do the best you can to follow the two drain lines back into the frame area. In every trailer I have had, there is a valve with a pull cable somewhere in the lines. This may mean taking off some of the covering or the box I see in the lower pic.
Since this is a used unit, there is no telling how the previous owner handled or modified the system.
Since you are going to have it situated permanently, you will have to learn NOT to have the black (sewer) tank valve left open--there must be fluid in the tank, or ugly solids will build up. Use the tank til it is near full, then dump and flush--this is a really dirty side of RV life, but necessary.
Keep working at this, and ask questions anytime.

You may not be thanking me if you open something at the wrong time with a full black tank...
Best of luck on this.

I would also suggest joining the Titanium owners forum, since other Glendale owners should be able to help you with any number of problems that can arise.

More information would be useful. 2001 Glendale. What model is it? Did you ask the seller any questions?

Any chance the original owner converted over to an electric valve and removed the handle?
