Drain lines?

Used my parents' 26TBSS at Ocean Lakes Family Campground this past weekend. Had a great time as we rang in the new year on the Atlantic Coast!

Near the Black/Gray water drain valves behind the slideout, there are two lines hanging down - one's red, one's blue. I can only assume these are drain lines for something... or maybe they're vents for the holding tanks?

We're all new to the Wildwood/Travel Trailer thing. My Rockwood Freedom popup isn't nearly this complicated!

Thanks for the help!

I'm sorry... Complete newbie now.

Low-point drains for the holding tanks or the fresh water systems?

Couldn't find anything in the manual about these...

Thanks again!!

for the H/C FW lines.

there are no low point drains for the holding tanks, other than the discharge.

So what is H/C FW? Not so newbie now but I don't have a clue what this means. Best guess: Hot or cold something or maybe fresh water?
