Mystery Valve

In Water hook up bay on a 2020 Forest River Wildwood Heritage Glen LTZ 286RL 5'er there is a valve on pex line unmarked. What is it for? It is not the heater bypass which is clearly marked.

Can you post pictures of what valve you are talking about?

something semi close and then a wide view or 2 to show where it is.

It’s a valve that can be opened and closed? Antifreeze input hose?

Pics are often more helpful than descriptions.

It is the white valve on the white pex. When I move the other white pex (antifreeze inlet) it seems connected. If it is for the the antifreeze inlet then for normal operation it should be closed - Right?

Looks like it is an inlet for antifreeze.

Mystery valve

Like already mentioned, the suction for anti freeze. I bet if you pull on one end of the pex , it will come out revealing the end that goes in the jug.

The white pex just below the city water connection has the end for sucking in antifreeze just out of lower edge of the picture. When I pull or wiggle that pex it moves the pex connected on left side of valve. So the valve seems to be for the antifreeze inlet.
Question - when connected to city water or to fresh water holding tank via pump this white valve should be closed and the red valve for hot water tank bypass should be in normal position (not bypass)?
