Drains

I agree with "Old Coot;" your dealer was "out-to-lunch. Without looking at the trailer, I would say that the drain looks like the fresh water tank drain. As for the blue and red lines, they are definitely the low-point drains for the hot and cold water lines. In my A122S, they are located right next to, and in the compartment containing, the hot water heater. Actually pretty convenient.

My fresh water drain is actually up front where the fresh tank is. I have no idea what the single blue hose would do. I just don't want to start opening drains without knowing what they do.

You can do a dye test. Put something red in the gray tank and see if it some red comes out of the pipe.

All three hoses are low point drains (hot, cold, & fresh water). If traveling with empty fresh water tanks, replacing the cap with a bal valve you can easily drain the FW tanks before you leave.

Are you sure the one up front is a drain or is it the holding tank vent? If it doesn't have a cap or plug it would be the vent for the tank.

It always helps to tell everyone what brand and model of trailer you have when asking questions.

In your picture, as others have said, the blue is the cold water drain and the red is the hot water low point drains. Also in your picture it looks like the fresh water holding tank drain. There might also be a fourth hose that isn't capped and that would be your fresh water tank overflow tube.

My fresh water tank and drain are both up front. Then the red and blue and the other blue hose by itself are at the back.

Yes, all four hoses have caps in them.

Red and blue are the water system, light blue is a the freshwater tank. It looks like the FW tank is under floor on that model so having a drain at the rear makes sense.

I'm guessing your dealer never winterized anything - I guess that is an issue with being in a warm state...
