Looks like the drain for your fresh water tank. Valve must be open.

If that is your breather tube for your fresh water tank, it may be 'self draining'..... Mine did that on our first few trips. a suction is created by water sloshing or over filling and flowing out and then the tank is able to sometimes drain 2/3s because of the suction/siphon effect. A Dealer (or you) may have to rework the tube to stop the siphon effect.

Petcock turned to the open position and draining fresh tank. The other two hoses are overflow/vent hoses.

Thanks for the replies. I have never filled the fresh tank and have left this valve open all the time (should I keep it closed?). We have been in torrential rain for 2 days and suddenly this valve began draining. Wasn't sure if it was coincidence or? The suction effect makes sense, I'm sure there was some water in the tank, but we're talking gallons of water draining. After this trip I have a long list of warranty repair items so I'll add thus and have it checked for good measure.

Here is something I have been thinking about in regards to the "bowing" of the outside kitchen doors some of us have been experiencing.

I have been leaving my outside fridge turned on with my drinks in it when I am not at the trailer with the door closed. There is no venting in my outside kitchen. I know some trailers have a duct vent into the bunkhouse.

I wonder if the heat from the fridge is what caused the door to bow???

Also do you think there are any issues with the fridge long term leaving it running with the trailer all closed up??

Please discuss,

Is your kitchen vented to the inside of your trailer?

That's a good point to consider. On my last trip I started turning my outside fridge off when I pack up.
