Antifreeze valve leaking on our travel trailer

The anti freeze valve on the side of our travel trailer has started leaking. How to fix it?

Antifreeze valve? We don't have one, could you be a bit more specific?

Post the type of rig you have and a pic of that valve would be nice. Most of the rigs I have worked on the valve for shifting pump suction is inside the rig.

Antifreeze valve/ inlet

It is a 2014 Forest River micro lite. It is a knob with a screen in the middle, and it has been dripping water all day. I've included a picture of it, hope it works.

Ok that is the inlet for antifreeze the actual shutoff valve will be inside normally by the suction inlet for your FW pump. Make sure the valve is closed.

Like Sea Dog says, the selector is on the other side of that wall, inside. Reposition lever or replace as indicated. Usually, you'd find a cap on those fittings on the outside and since they are garden hose thread (GHT) you can go to just about any hardware store or home center and get a cap/plug in plastic for that in either male or female configuration and cap off the fitting...no leak! Go to RV store and find one with a lanyard attached

I don't have that type of connection, but is there a "Check Valve" in the Inlet like there is on the "City Water" connections ?? Bad valve would allow water to leak back out.
