Help, plz? Water hose attachment outside...

We have a 2000 Forest River Spinnaker w/2 pull outs
Model: number 33RLBW, 35' long.
What does the water hose attachment, on the outside underbelly, go to? It is on the toilet side but a bit more to the front of the fifth wheel, away from the toilet.
And I ask because it is leaking and we cannot figure out what it is?
Is it a hookup for a hose to have an outside shower possibly?
Or maybe the water heater, leaking?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you.

I'm not sure on your particular rig, but it sounds like a low point drain used to empty your water lines for winterizing. Typically there are 2 fairly close together. One for hot water, and one for cold, but on an older rig.. I'm not sure. It's possible there may be only 1 for the fresh water tank.

Is it threaded? If not threaded then it's possible it could be some type of drain for your fridge or air conditioner. In that case, then you would want it to be 'leaking'.

Being a (2000) year unit it could be a (Mod/Addition) that has been added for (?) reason! Since it is (Threaded) very well (could/is) a Black Tank flush! Hooking a hose to it without knowing where it goes could give a (Shower you Don't Want)! Youroo!!

Hose connection

It may be a tank Flush connection for the black water tank. Can you see the black tank? Check the tank and see if there is a hose installed on the tank near the bottom.

Here is what my Low Point Drains looked like before and after.

Hope this helps the OP figure things out.

On my 05 Cardinal, these are two low point drains. Underneath between the hot water heater and front bathroom.
