I can't tell from the pic. It's too wide angle for my old eyes to see what you're addressing. Is it directly under your fresh water tank? If so, it's probably your drain. On my Wildcat, my drain just has a screw-off cap. Can you make a closer in pic?

Well, you seem to have a lot of stuff going on under there!

The blue 'L' shaped PEX line could be a low point drain but they usually are not 'L' shaped and there is usually a red PEX line near it too that have removable caps. That seems to be permanently plugged?

The line with the valve could be the fresh water drain but we've seen reports here of valves like that where you put a short piece of hose on the nipple on the valve and that is where you suck antifreeze into the system during winterization.

Finally, you have what 'appears' to be a low pressure LP line coiled up and zip tied to the underneath of your R/V. I suspect that shouldn't be riding there permanently.

Didn't your dealer do a PDI/Customer Orientation with you?

These questions should have all been answered then.

the would appear to be the FW tank drain but wee still cannot see what the valve is attached to. FW tank drain should be attached to a short peice of pipe the points straight down from the floor. What is that valve hooked to? Is your FW tank directly above this valve?

I'm assuming the coiled black hose is a gas line for BBQ grill. Is that correct?

under you trailer you should find at least 3 pipes. FW drain and 2 low point drains. If there is not a vent hole at the FW fill valve than you will find a 4 th pipe. It being the FW vent/overflow.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant
