I cut a piece of card board about 4" wide and 2' long bend it in the center to form a trough, Lower the deck all the way then break the drain plug loose. Slide the trough under the plug and remove the plug with my fingers and let it drain into a pan. Works good for me, Just done one monday. Also warm the unit up before draining.
