Blue hose under kitchen slide

2014 36CKTS has a blue hose with a shut off valve behind the rear tire. Any one have an idea it's purpose?

It sounds like a low point drain for cold water...should be a valved red line for the hot water also.

Low point drain most likely. You can drain any water in the cold water lines before winterizing.

I have red and blue near the front. I thought they were low point drains. This is only blue and in the rear with a shut off valve.

There are 3 "valves" if you have the residential reefer. White push pull is for the ice maker. Petcock is for the fresh water tank drain and the vertical one is your low point drain. All 3 are blue on my '12.

It is the fresh water tank drain on my 34 RLSA. Should be a small tube close by that is the fresh water tank over-flow.
