Black tubing capped off 3825fl

On my curb side front almost directly below the outside outlets I occasionally get. Water drips.
Upon looking up under the skirting there appears to be two capped off black pipes. This is where the drip originates.
Not my low point drain. Its on the road side.
Before I take my basement walls out again doesAnybody know what they connect to ? Shouldn't be any piping on the curb side. No use for water over there.

It depends on how they plumbed your unit. Could be for the water pump/heater area.

On the wrong side for anything. Everything that uses water and should have piping is on the road side of the trailer. I guess it's take out the basement walls again and crawl around some more.

You would think that, but it's is usually pretty jammed on the road side. They need to get the drain where it is reachable outside the frame but inside the skirt. Pipe is cheap. Fittings (even plastic ones) are more expensive. The interesting cost question is whether they used elbows or bend supports.

True, it's hard to tell what they did. As soon as we make it to where we are set up for more than 2 days I'll tear into it again. What has me is the black tubing. And there being 2 of them.

Dear Leon, we also have a 3825fl so I'm interested. You're right, no reason for plumbing at that location. A guess might be fresh water tank overflow, but that wouldn't need two. A second guess would be something to do with plumbing connections for washer / dryer in the rear. Don't know if yours has it or not. Also are they capped or open? I have the fresh water tank drain at about the same location but more on the driver's side. It is a blue plex tube with a 1/2 inch cap on it. There is also a condensation drain of blue plex under the refrigerator in the slide out that is uncapped. Can you tell me where you found the low point drains? I have not been able to find both of them. Also you stated you took out the basement wall. Which one? The rear one with the battery disconnect on it? How did you do that? Finally, do you know where the battery converter is? They hid it well! Thanks

Possibly for hot and cold drains. Maybe black tubing is marginally cheaper than red or blue. A lot of senseless things they do is because of cost. 1000-foot rolls are common bulk supply.

Back again. They moved us from TX to Indiana so I haven't had a chance to get in there but I have a feeling they are the low point drains. Strange place for them but... What isn't strange when looking at the builds they do on these things.
