Water drip left of entry step

I am getting a drip of water coming from a flexible hose to the left of our entry step. It will be a steady drip for a short period, then stop for a period, then continue in this cycle. We are in full hook-up mode. Holding tanks are not full. Any ideas?

Ok I was able to look under the coach. There are 2 low point drains there. I do not what these are for, or where the water is coming from? Thanks for any help.

They are for draining your system when winterizing..Take you some Teflon tape and put on the threads and tighten back up should take care of it.

thanks for your reply. I thought they were the drains for wintterizing the unit, but I have never winterized. Unless it is from the dealer predelivery check.

They are screw caps. Try tighening them first.

I have the same issue and just re-tighten them once in a while when they start dripping.

I have the same problem.

I think it's designed that way so you know they're there and don't forget about them when it's time to winterize.

You may also want to check your refrigerator drain. If the drain hose is not routed properly, the water from the frig will run down the inside of the coach and usually exit where you are seeing water dripping by the step.

I would like to see a picture of the steps being under a low point drain. Seems rather odd that the steps are that far under the coach.

I had the same issue
I was told by a fellow camper there was too much water pressure at the rv park and I needed a reducer
Put in a pressure regulater between hose and rv and problem ceased
Now I always use a reducer and haven't had a prob since
