Looks to me like a capped off cold water line that could be used for adding on. Have you tried to un-cap it and see what happens? Might be fun!

Looks like one of the low point drain lines. You may want to e-mail Ashley Evans at aevans@forestriverinc.com and ask for the complete set of Sunseeker manuals for your specific model. They cost $25 plus shipping and are worth it. You might also want to call Mike Burns (Sunseeker Rep) at 574-206-7603. One of his functions is to answer our questions. Hope this helps!!

That's what all my low point drains looked like on my Keystone Outback.
Haven't crawled under the new one yet....

Okay, I purchased copies of the camper's manuals, and there in no where shows this blue/red hoses. Can anyone please tell me how to open them? The cap does not come out at all, I attempted to unscrew the second ring but there is nothing to come out, unles I yank the top cap from the inside the hose, (the top cab is inserted approximately 1/2 to 1 inch long inserted into the hose. Suggestions? I do not want to pull that cap from inside the hose and then I can not put it back later.

I agree with the low point drain. Just use 2 pairs of pliers, one to hold the main body and one to spin the cap off. These caps must be removed and RV antifreeze run out of them for proper winterization. As a suggestion, put some ball valves in place of the caps for easier draining/winterizing. The plastic threaded 1/2" valves "should" thread right on.

Okay I will try that, I thought that the caps will come out easily but now I know to use two pliers to assist me to remove the plugs. Thanks.

I am going to assume the pic is looking in the engine compartment. That's what it looks like. NDP is No Discernible Purpose. It looks like someone jerry rigged something. If it were a low drain valve it would be near the ground.

It REALLY looks like nothing. Like someone jerry rigged something. Where does it go? Did you trace it out?

No engine compartment, the two hoses are in the same side of the black/grey valves, and I have two other ones in the back center near of the bumper. (They are also a red and blue hoses.

I would like to know if I do not find these low point hoses, and I am going to winterize the camper with anti-freeze should I be okay? The antifreeze should go down to the low point also, right?
