3 pipes in the back

I have 3 pipes in the rear compartment of my MH, they each have a valve on them. Not sure what they are for. I'm sure they are some kind of water drains, but 3 of them?? One is pinched off with a pair of vise grips...

What type of RV do you have? One could be the fresh water drain, another the drain for your water pipes from the sinks and shower, the other valve may be for your winterizing.

3 valves, it could be the hot water bypass for winter.

For posting photos ; I always re-size to 640 pixels , and when your in the " manage attachments window and click download , make sure the " download complete " text comes up before you close that window , or pictures are lost in cyber space.

EDIT: BTW , took me about three weeks to get onto posting photos , so you're not alone.
