Anyone know what these are for?

When camping last week after hooking up to city water noticed water dripping from one of the little tubes. Never noticed it before when hooked up to water. Removed panels in camper and found no trace of water leaking inside.

Low point drains. There should be a couple of valves directly above.

use for draining the water system, i.e. winterization.

I would add a short section of hose to that and then spray foam the opening to keep spiders and what not out.

Search for rodent proof spray foam. Mice can chew the regular stuff right out.

Thanks for the advice, little bugger's find all sorts of ways to enter. I guess another question would be if these are low point drains what is draining once connected to water source. I don't recall ever seeing water dripping before why now. I wonder is there water pooling I cant see.

Yes, they are plastic and road vibrations do strange things.

Fittings do come loose so it is a good idea to get on the water and find out where it is coming from BEFORE it does some damage.

Thanks for everyone's replies I have found the problem it looks like the cold water and it was the one that was leaking was slightly open I pulled up on both valves ( I assume that's what you would do when winterizing) and push them both all the way to the floor. I also found that they are tightly sealed to the floor with some sort of chocolate sealant I don't know if its rodent proof but it's sure to keep out buggies. It looks just like chocolate pudding yum yum.

Glad you got it and thanks for the picture and fix.
