mystery drain pipe

On my 1996 Rockwood Roo, at the back driver side corner of the trailer near the black/grey drain valves, there is a short red tube, no valve, sticking out of the floor towards the ground. Where does this tube drain from??

This is not the drain from the fresh water tank, which I know to be forward on the trailer and directly under the fresh water tank, and which has a valve.

Low point drain?
Fridge condensation drain?
Rain gutter drain?

The surest way to lose is to play Marco Polo with a ventriloquist.

The fresh water overflow is at the same port as the the fresh water intake.

Low point drain???? Low point of what - trailer subfloor??What fluid would be coming out of this??

The fridge condensation drain is on the opposite side of the trailer behind the fridge.

The rain gutters drain outside the trailer. The drain tube I'm asking about sticks out of the sub floor of the trailer about 6" in from the side.

Is there a storage cabinet above it that you can get into and trace where it goes?

You might blow some air up through it and see what happens, but be careful, you could blow it off of whatever it's attached to.

Might also be for the A/C if you have it.

Since it is RED it most likely is the low point drain for for hot water on one of the sinks or shower.
I would bet there there is a black "cap" on the end of it?

It most likely is a system drain. In my 2006 pop up,there were two valves in a bottom cabinet that were used to drain the cold and hot lines. Check the cabinet above that drain pipe and you should see the valves.
