Low point drain

Greetings
I have a new 25bds. Prior to that I had an aframe camper. While walking around I noticed this low point drain receptacle. I opened the door and saw the hose. It was in the open position. I turned it to closed. It looks like another device would be snapped on to end of hose. After just going to take another look it definitely has a slip fitting where a male fitting would fit. So Iím thinking open or closed nothing would come out of hose.
What Iím trying to find out is if I even need it. I live in a s FL and wouldnít be winterizing.
What would slip into end of hose. And for what.
Thanks for reading.

Suggest a pic. I am most familiar with caps on the ends (with no valve) or nothing on the end (with valve).

Very possible that the valve the put on the end of the Low point drain just happened to have a female slip fit connection on the open end. There should be two low point drains one for cold ( blue pex) and one for hot ( red pex)

The photo you posted appears to be the low pressure propane port for an outside grill or stove. If you get water out of that you are in trouble. Low point drains are red and blue.


To post a photo, rather than hitting the submit button keep scrolling down to attach files and click manage attachments. A search widow will open that will allow you to locate the photo. After selecting the photos, be sure to click the upload button.

Under the deck at the outdoor kitchen is a receptacle for hooking up the 2 burner stove. The barbecue has a connection on the wall to hook into.

That is a gas line. low point drains are red and blue with valves. FW tank drain and overflow are white or clear (uaually). Overflow will have no valve. drain (should) have a valve.

As Flybob said, that valve in your pic is for quick disconnect for a gas grill or stove. Even though you have an outdoor kitchen, you should have gotten a small table and an RVQ grill that slide onto the mount above the little door you pulled that hose out of. Looks like this:



The sticker that says Low Point Drains means to stick your head under your unit at that point and you'll find the low point drains. Since the Micro Lite is the sister of the Mini Lite, I'm guessing you'll find a red and a blue PEX hose with caps on the ends, as on my Mini Lite.

Sounds like you had a really bad PDI.
