Well, if it is for the sewage hose, I doubt I will use it. It seems dryer vent hose would be easy to puncture.

Its a backdoor for the mice to get in. Now I know where mine are coming from.

What side of the motorhome is it on? Is it on the side where the awning is? If so, did some previous owner have an awning room, and this provided heat to that room?

Really I'm just taking a wild guess.

Questions I would be asking are:

1) where is it located on the RV... exactly?
2) is it hooked up to anything?
3) If connected to the furnace, does it suck or blow?

in any event... it doesn't look OEM to me.

who knows... maybe a previous owner used to run ducting out to his Igloo Dog House to keep the pooch warm.

Ooops! just went back and read all of your post. So its on the drivers side. That is really strange. I'm going to stick with "Dog House Heater".

It's killing me to know. So, I'm going to have to run over to where I have it stored and turn the furnace on. I'm certain it is OE because the door perfectly matches the door on the back of the coach where the electrical hook up comes out.
Sure would hate to place my sewage hose in there though to then discover its an air inlet for the furnace.

I'd think the air ride 30 psi has nothing to do with that vent looking thing. It'd be pretty hard to get that door to hold 30 psi, no?

The original owner wrote that info on with magic marker as a notation to what to keep the suspension pressure set to. The air valves are mounted below the wording.

OK, so I went to look at it and turned the furnace on. There was no suction into or any air coming out of the hose.
I may have to then go with the sewage pipe storage, but it just seems odd that this hose would angle up and in toward the middle of the coach. I would think it would be level if this were the case. Plus, why would the owner have the sewage hose stored in the tank compartment when I purchased the unit?

Our old coachmen had the same " compartment " for the sewer hose. We never used either. Since the material is just dryer vent hose it is very flimsy. I tried to stow the sewer hose there and it was a PITA. It was too short to even think about putting a sewer hose of any length in there. I see the theory in it but seems like a poor design.

Is your coach equipped for a clothes dryer? Maybe the dryer outlet?

I recently lookad at a 1992 coach while I was in the market and it had the same thing and it was labeled sanitary hose storage. It was the exact same silver drier vent hose and looked like it would be a pita as stated above to try and shove the hose into it. I haven't looked at many but the only ones I've seen that on didn't have a tube bumper to store the hose in.

If it won't budge, hit it harder or get a bigger hammer.

That felxibal hose they use is kind of anemic for hose storage though... I think it is a vent for something, Perhaps after market.

NOTE: I have added a door or two like that to my rig, it is painted to match the rig exactly.. Looks factory, You would think it's factory, I know better.
