Water in floor of water connection bay

Question for someone who has a later model Hurricane... Had an opportunity and need to drain the gray and black water tanks in my 2014 Hurricane for the first time today.

All of the drain hoses were jammed in there. When I pulled them out, I discovered about an inch of water in the bottom. I don't think it was from the sewer drains but rather more likely fresh water from the outdoor shower being turned on carelessly or from when the hose to the freshwater tank was disconnected with water in the hose. I'm assuming that if it were from the gray or black water tanks it would have smelled to high heaven. It didn't really.

I'm surprised there were no holes in the floor to allow the water to drain out. Anybody have this issue? Seems like an easy job to drill some holes.

If no smell then it's got to be from residual water in garden hose or from rinsing sewer line before stowing, etc. How long has it been sitting...should have evaporated? It also could be from rain splash entering compartment underway somewhere. I would not drill holes anywhere as outside rain water WILL come in then while underway. Dry it all up and just observe going forward. Place a small white towel under the drain valves for a little while. It will spot if the caps are leaking/seeping. Look for a removable drain plug in there somewhere.
