Are you sure those aren't your low point drain hoses?

Those stubs are likely the low point drains and you may want to put a tee in the line there so the drains can still be used. Other than that it sound like a feasible mod.

Buy some garden hose, a "y" fitting with shutoffs, and some barb type fittings.

Invert the "Y" hook up to the hot and cold low point drains with little hose pieces and some fittings. Then bring the hose with a spray end off the single end of the "Y" there you go. You have a hot and cold spray faucet at the door and you can just remove it when you leave. No holes or tools required.

I might just do this to mine although not in as accessible area as your is. But always good to have.

I would not want the wash station near the main door. Seems it would be better located near the rear of the trailer.
