Low Level Drain Hose

I have a 2014 Cherokee 254Q and was wondering what the low level drain hoses are and what they would be used for.

My last camping trip in the mornings after showers water was dripping from one of these hoses, not sure what one though, they are located on the curb side to the left of the door steps up and out of sight. We were connected to city water supply with a pressure regulator. My dealer has the camper now doing some work on it and can not explain why they were dripping. I have been on 3 trips with this rig and 3 times have had issues when we returned.

Pardon the pun but the wife and I aren't happy campers at this point.

Any help is appreciated.

they are for draining the water out of the lines, usually just before winterizing with antifreeze

Why would you figure they would drip water and quite a bit on my 3rd trip out and never have they been touched by me or my wife? No one was in the camper when this was happening.

Just trying to figure what happened and why

My fresh water tank's drain dripped like crazy from day one. The pex clamp was not properly tightened. A quick squeeze with my pliers and no more leak

The caps/valves on those lines are notorious for leaking. Did you try to tighten them?

Some people replace them with better quality hardware.

Replaced mine with 1/4 turn hose bibs. Easier to drain and I now have an outside hose hookup if needed. Never used it for getting water but put a hose on to direct water from the house when draining.
