What's Draining

There is a tube hanging down under the RV behind the removable cover in the utility bay. This is the first time I've noticed something draining through that... where is the water coming from?

Weirder yet... there is a little thing that looks like a nut on the passsenger side just under, and between, the two front bay doors. I thought it was one of those nuts that you see throughout the coach, except, there were drops of water coming from it!

Now... one thing I did differently, was, I dumped at a public dump site and had to use their sewer hose that didn't fit quite right. So, I hosed down the tray in the utility bay after I dumped. Could that have caused the draining in either of these places?

There's always something new.

I think the tube is your rear fresh water tank overflow

On mine, the tube coming out underneath the service/utility bay is where the front air conditioner drains. Other models have different locations but mine drains from there. Also the "low point" drains are located near the front of the service bay...on mine.

On a 2005 the front ac drain is on the drivers side in the generator compartment it could be the low point drains as you mentioned

Four options: 1-one of the low point drain valves dripping [dont think these have an external pipe]; 2: one of the A/C condensation drains but think by o5, the drains were located front windshield column and rear cap; 3: one of two fresh water tank overflow drains; and 4: the flush drain for your RO water system, if you have one.

The passenger side drain is most likely from your refrigerator. The one at the service bay (toward the center l/r of the coach?) sounds like the rear fresh tank overflow. There is also one on the front of the tank.
