Are these for winterizing?

I've owned this camper just over a month and have camped in it once for 6 days. I do know that I had to close these valves the first time I hooked up shore water. Are they used to back-flush the water lines/holding tanks? Thanks in advance.

Those look like your water system drain valves. One for gravity drain of the house plumbing, and one for the fresh water tank.

Bypass valves wouldn't be opened to drain on the ground. They are to bypass the water heater...which is drained using the drain plug on the tank itself. That plug is accessible behind the outside tank cover.

My potable tank drains directly beneath itself. All I know about these is that they look to be an add-on and one of them spewed water when on city connection. Thanks for your insight!
