The white valve he installed replaced this hose/cap where you can drain it. But, I'm wondering what he did to the front. All are pretty fragile and low (albeit the fresh water is more fragile as it's more fixed)

I had the same thing on my last trailer. I cut them off as short as I could and re-installed the fittings/valves. I bought a special crimper and rings from Home Depot.

If it were me I would get rid of that blue extension and replace it with a threaded ball valve.

I would take all the hose off and put a street elbow in with the a valve on it.

It's on my list to address when I get a chance (Trying before this weekend before the next trip).

I will add 90degree elbows to them when I can get to them. They were not as low as the fresh water drain. They are on the mod list. Too many projects in front of them.

Ended up buying the crimper for the drains in the front, cut shorter and added a valve to make it easier. Now it doesn't hang down.



On the fresh water tank just found a small valve I could screw in with a coupler. Now, it's a little above the sewer lines.



But, still debating about flipping the axles.

Bought (2) pex pipe turn outs at Lowes for $2.00, 1/2" adapters and 1/2" PVC ball valves and pipe.
