Water leaking from low point drains

There was a pipe that was leaking in the wall behind the toilet. Had to bring our Windjammer to the dealer in order to open the wall to fix the leak.

When we moved the trailer, we noticed a lot of water coming out of a square in the middle of the tarp under the trailer about at the same level as the low point drains. When the trailer was brought back to the camp site after repairs, we noticed that water continually drips from the low point drains even if the caps are on. There seems to be some pressure on them.... Any idea as to what the problem is would be welcome!! Tks!!

I have a Clipper 17FQ and had a similar problem but in my case the low point drains were shooting water up into the underbelly.. I cut them off and replaced them with 1/4 turn shutoffs.. One end was pex that I crimped on and the other end was 3/8" thread that I capped with a cap and washer .

When it was winterized were the caps removed to drain the line? The antifreeze may not have got to the end of the low point caps. The caps could have froze and cracked.

There are rubber seals inside the caps that can fall out during service

X2.....They are flat rubber like a garden hose, but a round 'o' ring works just fine.
