What in the world is this for?

Could someone please tell me what this is for. Its on the dump side of a 2015 23ss, Under the outside shower and left of the cable hook up. Has the same type of connection as a city water hook up or garden hose. I have scoured the owners Manuel which i'm thinking would serve a better purpose lighting a campfire. I may not know what I'm doing but I know where to go Thanks guys

I was hoping but I can find nothing going to the tank. Although that would be great!

The label is talking about sewer gases. I say FI is right. Open the black tank dump valve... hook a water hose to it and run some water in there and find out.

What's strange is the sticker on my XLR that was near the flush inlet/hose connection, said to open the dump valve before flushing. What I do is nearly fill the black tank from the flush inlet, then dump... repeat until clean. You can run the black tank over inside your trailer (probably) if you aren't careful. But, a flush valve is a nice addition.

If you look inside the cabinet of your bathroom sink and see one of these vacuum break valve then it is for your black water tank flush....

THX guys, That's exactly what it is. Which is great! Extremely happy about that. I do wish that would have been mentioned during the walk through but I will take it none the less. I was a bit shocked at all the debris that was in the tank. Styrofoam, plastic, And a piece of wood shot out?

Meh, has been seen/posted about so much it is now (in my book) considered normal.

Have you checked the lens of your inside lights for sawdust yet?
