What is the hose coming from the bottom of my wet bay?

Geez, every time I turn around I discover something new that is NOT in the owner's manual!

I noticed this hose coming from the bottom of my wet bay. It's not for my water fill, and my tank flush (sani-flush) is inside the wet bay.

I don't think it is for winterizing because I have a clear open ended hose in the wet bay that I can use to drain the water out. It has a valve on it that is closed. When I open it water runs out.

Seems like it would be easy to damage this off if I ran over something.

I can't tell...it's behind the wet bay bulkhead...I'll get a mirror and see if I can see where it leads to.

Fresh water tank drain or low point water line drain.

If its near ir below your fridge it could be the condensation pan drain. Ever see anything dripping from it?

Maybe intake hose for pumping antifreeze through the system when winterizing. My coach has this feature, but it is a pipe nipple that can take a rubber hose slipped over it. With the valves set correctly, the water pump will pump from this source.

The fridge is right above it. Seems strange to have a fitting on the end though.

Fred - that makes sense. I will crawl under and trace the hose back inside to see where it goes and I'll look at the manual under 'winterizing' to see if it mentions the hose.

If it was just a drain hose....why the threaded winged coupler on the hose?

Low point drain, fresh water drain or winterizing suction line but I seriously doubt the later one.. Should be 2 if it's a low point drain.

Drain some water from your fresh water tank and see where it comes out.

Ok I think Fred was right. In the attached pictures you can see where the blue and red (hot and cold? Aqua Hot?) lines go down through the floor of the wet bay. This is where the fitting is. The clear line running vertical is just pushed thru a rubber clamp (only friction holds it there - it can be pulled out). I think the clear line is the drain.

In the manual it shows a very simplified picture showing a tube running in to a container for anti-freeze for winterizing.
