Hose to nowhere

I removed my black and gray dump valves to replace leaking blade seal and found this hose going to nowhere. Any ideas on what it's for? The only thing I can come up with is a drain for the washer/dryer pan. But it looks like it was connected to somewhere with the hose clamp and what looks like a peice of plastic broken inside of it. It's almost to clean of a cut to have broke though.

Just a WAG here, but could it be the vent line for the fresh water tank? On many RV's there is a similar hose that goes from the top of the water tank uo to the Gravity Fill compartment. As you fill the tank with water it displaces air which comes out of the tube. It could have broken off the fill compartment.

With an air gun not sealing against the hose blow air in it and have a helper listen for noise to see where it goes.

An earpiece from a music player taped to it also works as the sound will travel through the hose and come out other end.

Looks like the hose which drains a trough at the bottom of each side of your slide. In my coach I have one hose coming down in the second bay drivers side (generator bay) and this hose in the water bay.

That would be my guess, especially since there is a piece of plastic fitting broken off in the hose.

Fresh water tank vent would be my guess as well considering where it is located (plumbing bay) and you have not mentioned any significant water leak issues.

There are a few other open ended hoses that I am aware of - drains from air conditioner condensate pumps (I have 3, one in front drivers compartment, one near plumbing bay for centre air conditioner, one near back; they all drain to under coach). Another open ended hose is for the refrigerator drain tube however that usually terminates in the outside fridge compartment.

Just sharing some other info in case your hose is not our primary guess.

Rainy and windy today so no looking into it. But no leaks anywhere,two a/c units drain under the coach,fridge is on the other side of coach but will check that out. I didn't look but I have the drawings for my coach not sure if that will show anything.

I agree on the gravity fill. Take the screws out of the cover, and pull it out once this rain and wind stops. There is enough slack to pull out. Did that coach once belong to a school teacher/piano restorer??

Didn't have much time today but that hose is not from the fresh water fill or the fridge. While poking around I found another hose.


This one is for the washer/dryer pan. The other hose seems to be running towards my shower area. I tried to stick my hand up and snap a few pics but really can't see anything. Might have more time to fool with it tomorrow.

Ok looks like I crapped out on the freshwater tank vent idea. So here is another idea. Do you have a outdoor shower? On my coach the shower or spray head broke off the hose and it looked like what you show in the first picture you posted the other day. Could it be?????

If this is a drain hose for something, I don't understand why the hose clamp on the end.

One more idea. Where is your refer located? If it is close by, it could be off of the drain that is in the bottom of the refer

Spilled 1/2 bottle of water down the refer drain and no water came out of that hose. Weekend is comming maybe have some time to fool with it.

Thumbs up Mystery Hose

Not being a wiseguy, but did you actually remove the gravity fill compartment and pull it out?? That plastic with the clamp that is broken, looks like the back of the vent on the compartment for the fresh water tank. Either way, I like the compressed air idea. Keep us informed.
