I’m thinking your photo is sideways.......so that doesn’t help.

Also......you,provide no information on what year, make, model, or general location of where the shot was taken.

We need help to help you too.

I said I was new. Forgive me for not following proper protocol. The picture was not taken sideways but for some reason it loaded sideways. It is near the back left side of a Wildwood X Lite 195BHXL.

What year Wildwood?

Two things come to mind... and I'm basing these both on the fact that I believe one end of that hose is just stuck up in the underbelly and is loose.

1. A winterizing port of sorts where the loose end of the hose goes into an antifreeze jug, the valve is opened and the on-board pump draws antifreeze into the plumbing.

2. The drain (or the overflow) for the fresh tank.

Have you looked to see if one end pulls out?
It really does no good the way it is with the hoses kinked on both sides of the valve.

Did you buy it used from an individual or a dealer?

2015. One end came loose and water was pouring everywhere. Haven't checked to see if it is just stuck up there. Will do that. I assume the valve should be off?
