Drain lines

We had a hard freeze last night in southern AZ. I left my inside faucet on in the bath and the kitchen. Running water all fine this morning. Looked outside and the two drain lines (hot and cold) from the kitchen/bath junction area were draining on the ground. The cold was a steady drip, but the hot was almost a steady stream. When we turn on the hot water in the kitchen or bath, the hot drain slows down to a trickle, but still leaks. I have pulled the pressure valve and it sprays correctly, and shuts correctly. I have found no interior leaks at any location. The underbelly is insulated, so there shouldn't be any problems there. The water is definitely coming from the drain tubes. Am I missing something? Thanks for the help.

Sounds to me like the leak is at your drain lines. Some are capped and some have a valve. I would check to see if that is the cause.

I don't see any caps on the ground. I also haven't opened or closed any valves, except for pressure valve on tank itself. Thank you for your quick reply. Could the freeze have stuck a valve that I haven't found yet? This is a 1996 Forest River Salem T27RLG. Thanks again.

Just to make sure, we are talking about your low point drains located under the trailer?

If so, then I'm afraid the caps or valves are all I can think of as to why water is draining.
Are the end of the lines threaded? If so then I would say the caps are missing. If that's the case and you haven't traveled, then if they somehow came off and they should be close by.
If you have been on the road, they may be lost.
Maybe you can make a temp plug until you can reach a hardware store?
Sorry I'm not much help, but I'm positive there are others on here that can come up with a good solution.
Good Luck
