What is this for?

Can someone please tell me what this hook up is for?
It appears to be linked to the furnace, but I cannot find anything in the owners manual on it.
It's access is behind the compartment door where my LP tank is.

It appears to me that it might be used to hold the sewer hose when it's not in use?

On our Newmar Dutch Star it's sewer hose storage, but our inside tube is white plastic pipe. That looks to be dryer outlet flexible hose.

It is made of the same tubing that the furnace lines are. I haven't crawled underneath (yet), but it does appear to run over to the furnace. I was thinking maybe any exterior hose could be hooked to it to heat something. But there are no external attachment points.

I need to add a signature. I have a 2002 Monaco McKenzie Rogue.

In the picture, it looks like something is written above the hole. What does it say?

It looks like "Air ride" and "30 psi". There are two air fittings there too.

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say it is an external hot air vent. Have you had the furnace on to see if you have heat?

It says 30 psi. It's for the Air-Ride suspension.

I need to try that. I think you are absolutely correct! However, what would it go to? And it is underneath the living area slide which would make it a PITA to deal with. I need to determine if it is an inlet or outlet.

But it is also odd that they would place an outlet on the drivers side of the RV and not the side in which one typically hangs out.

Exactly what I thought and said a couple posts ago.

And let me say, I like all the input!
This has been a head scratcher for me.

I KNOW! I think. Previous owner had RV parking space next to house or other source of less expensive heat and A'cond. Simply pipe heat from house ducts to RV. Great idea.

ahicks is right. It is sewer hose storage. most manuf. used this cover with solid plastic pipe, but a few used dryer vent. If you want to be sure, look under the coach and you will find it does not hook into anything.
