Red and Blue caps underneath in back end.

I was cleaning out my black and gray tank and when I looked underneath I noticed a blue and red cap line. I wasn't sure what they are for or hooked up to. I guess dealership didn't mention it.

Those would be your low point drains, for when you go to winterize. Enables you to drain most of the water from the lines.

Low point drains are not for your tanks. They are for water left in your lines. Your fresh water tank will have it's own drain line as do your grey and black tanks.

Good luck,
Don

Yep - low point drains. Assuming you are parked fairly level and assuming your unit was assembled with plumbing lines in a somewhat normal orientation, removing these caps (and opening faucets to release vacuum) will allow almost all of your hot (red cap) and cold (blue cap) water to drain out.
You probably have a third similar drain somewhere under there for the fresh water tank.
I was going to refer you to some good winterizing sites, but I see you are in FL so not sure what to recommend as I'm in the currently very cold Midwest.

The hot water heater drain that you mentioned is important too, but it is really only for the heater itself, not the rest of the supply and feed lines.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Brian

Shoot those winterizing sites to me. I am in Upstate New York now and probably will leave 5th wheel here when I go back to Florida.
