White hose beside low point drain

There is a white hose under the trailer beside the low point drain that is running water. Can't figure out why and where the water is from.
Help is appreciated!

Fresh water tank drain? And it may be draining because you may be getting water into the FW tank due to a stuck check valve in the water pump. Or, if you have water in the FW tank, then the drain valve may not be closed completely.

Picture would help to identify what it might be?

My Creek has three low point drains plus the fresh water tank drain so, that is why I asked for a picture!

Drains would be capped off. Sounds like the overflow/vent for the holding tank and yes, it might be because the water pump may have a stuck check valve if there is shore water hooked up.

Shut city water off. Cycled pump on-off a couple times. Turned city water on. No overflow water.
Problem solved.
Thank you gentlemen!! I'll be able to sleep tonight!!

Not necessarily on all makes/models. Mine is just a shut off valve at the end of a very short stubby hose sticking out from the underbelly cover.

I was told that was overflow for onboard fresh water tank. Tech filled as part of new unit walk through and said “just fill until it starts flowing out that tube”.
