Rockwood 5th wheel FW hose connections

In another thread members were talking about filling their FW tank from 5 gallon jugs using their fresh water pump. Got to thinking about a hose and valve on my 8280ss 5er that I never saw on any of my other trailers. I believe this hose is so you can blow out the water lines when winterizing.

I am posting two photos of it. My question is, does it have any other use? And is there a way to use the water pump to put water into the FW tank with it?

I should add that the hose to the left goes to the FW tank, to the right goes to the pump.
