Water Valve Question - 2005 Kountry Star 3742

I know what all my valves are except the one circled in the photo below. I think it goes to the water tank but am not sure. Does anyone know what this valve closes off within the water system? Checked my chassis diagrams but it doesn't show valve locations/function.

Note, the water pump is just above out of view in the photo so the valve on the lower right of the circled one is the valve for water pump intake for winterizing.

If that white water line on the right goes to the pump, I would think the valve in question would have to shut off water from the tank in order for the pump to be able to suck antifreeze into the lines.

It looks like it needs to be closed, circled one, so the pump can suck the Anti from the white hose when you open that valve.

I agree, it is the shutoff so you can open the valve just below and to the right to add antifreeze. You can also use this use the pump to fill your tank by setting the two valves to add antifreeze and then open the tank fill valve.

Exactly. Bob I also sent you an email. That's the valve I wrestled with this week because my pump would not pull water out of the tank. I then realized that valve had to be open for for the pump to pull water out of the tank.

Thanks for all the responses, that's sort of what I figured but wasn't sure.
