Hole in side of trailor

To the right of the front door of our tt is this hole. Does anyone know what it is for. Unable to tell where it leads from the other side. Worried about water and leaks. Thanks. We have a 2012 signature ultra lite.

I'm thinking it where you insert your jack to manually winch your opposite slide.

The 2 posters ahead of me speak no lies !
If your electric slide out motor quits then you can manually take it out or bring it in .
your dealer should have showed you that on pdi .
he also should have supplied you with the tool to do it with !

well no sense putting in an X5 but you use the landing gear manual crank you should have found in a compartment in that hole.

Also, it is below the floor in the skirting, no issues with leaking as it is below everything

You should feel very lucky you have a hole for this purpose! Our friends bought a Laredo two years ago. If their slide fails, they have to PUNCH A HOLE in the "skirting" area to access the connection to use the tool to crank it in/out. How is that for a HUGE design flaw??? The one on our TT is accessible without a hole. You wouldn't have to worry about water damage; there isn't anything behind this area to get wet.

I think it is where the water drains out when your water line breaks inside your trailer.
I think I read that in the trailer manual.
