Couple questions....

Anyone know what these two lines are for? They are capped and right under the exterior water connection just above the grey and black dump valves.

The blue one is leaking. Should I try to tighten it down more or remove the cap and put some Teflon tape on it maybe?

Also, the housing for the water connection is loose and doesn't seem to be properly siliconed. Should I just put a fresh bead of silicone around the housing?

This is on a new TT and I don't want to haul it 80 miles just to have these minor issue fixed.

Thanks,

They are your hot and cold low point drains. You should also have a drain for your fresh water tank. I would remove the water fill connection thoroughly clean recaulk and reinstall.

Blue and red are the low point drains. I had to nip the band clamps off and put on small hose clamps. Probably just add a little more silicone to that fresh water in let. Sometimes it's easier to just go around taking care of the little things ourselves.
Hint: Keep a small divided storage box on hand to store those drain caps in when rig is winterized along with a couple spare hose clamps and assorted hardware. Teflon tape and electrical tape also.

Here is in inside view of what would be your water fill inlet, ( mine was crooked not gapped like yours) but what I found is when hole was drilled it was on angle and that puts stress on assembly being that it's plasstic when for example the sun heats it up a little it starts to distort. I removed mine altered hole slightly and reassembled. No parts needs just some sealants and labor. Click image for larger version

Sorry forgot, your leaking fitting if tightening fails to work, try big box fitting called Tiger Shark or its equivalent. They are tool free slip fittings there pricy but awsome Click image for larger version
