1) What are the blue and red connections coming down by the steps. It is on the opposite side of the trailer for the water intake, etc.

2) There are 3 vents/drains scattered about 1/3 of the way down the trailer on the underbelly cover. The picture with duck tape is where I put it to prevent the screws from backing out. Does anyone know if those 4 screws are suppose to be attached to anything under the underbelly cover or are they just to attach the drain to the cover?

The red and blue lines are low point drains, I am unsure about the vents.

But they may be for underbelly ventilation to prevent moisture.

Vents are probably for the propane tanks and batteries. Screws are only into the plastic underbelly and not into anything substantial.

The vents can also keep the underbelly from completely filling with water if you have a leak, causing the liner to pull loose and crash down before you even know you have a leak.

We have a vent like that right under the bed area of our 5er. It alerted us to a small leak under the shower,,only dripped once every 2 minutes or so...repaired last month under warranty.

I'm actually happy to find those vents; leak alert and humidity prevention
