2 Fresh water drain valves?

On my 27BH I have 2 hoses under the tank. 1 has a valve that I can close but the other doesn't. The one with out started to drain water as I was filling up fresh water tank. What is this for?

Sounds like the unvalved line is a vent or overflow for the fresh water tank.

I was thinking this too but there is no way I filled up the 42 gallons in 3 minutes

Maybe it is supposed to be capped or have a valve.
Is the valved line a low point drain?

I would assume the valved obe is low point drain, but there isn't kutch literature in the manual.

It looks like the same type of hose as the valved line. No threads. About 1" away from the valved line and hanging about 4" below the tank.

My 312QBUD has the same set as your talking about. I assumed too, one with valve is drain and other is vent/overflow.

Mine as well 312qbud, I thought maybe they were supposed to be joined and maybe a clamp was missing but I went to the lot and looked at two other same models, and they are all the same separated

Awesome thanks guys! How do you drain your hot water tank? I noticed there are 2 hoses (one Red and one Blue) almost directly above the Grey/Black dump valves with screw on caps. Are these my low point drains, and is this how I drain the hot water tank?
