What Do These Hoses Do?

Hello, all. I have a 2014 DRV Suites trailer that I just bought. In looking for my fresh water tank drain valve (which I still can't find), I noticed these three pex lines coming out under the coach. They are really close to being right under the washer and dryer so I'm assuming there's a connection, but I don't know that. Does anyone know what they're for, and where is the fresh water drain valve? Thanks for any help ya'll can give me.

Looks like pipes from the ends of low point or tank drain valves.

That's what I would guess.

Hi

I have a DRV Tradition. My drain valves are near the floor, below the copper distribution pipes in the lower compartment. The water pump is also in the same area. Hope this helps.

Yes, those are drain lines. Whatever you want to know about Drv's, ask actual owners on the Suites owners website, www.suitesowners.com, OR on the THOR website, which just purchased the company, OR on the 5thwheelforum.com, which has a Drv thread. Very helpful owners

Hot/Cold system drains and fresh water tank drain.
The valve is inside down low behind the water heater. It is 1 1/4 run that looks like a angle stop under your sink cabinet at home. Very slow to drain 100 gallons!

I just purchased a residential camper in May, and I have found many differences between the Trilogy and my previous campers. Look for those owners forums for specific makes when you get into these units, as they differ greatly from all other Thor/Keystone/Forest River products in design and equipment.

Thanks. I'm glad to see that their website is back up. I've been a member on it for a while, but when it went down several months ago, I didn't hold out much hope that it would be brought back around.
