Gushing water

I need some help. I replaced hot and cold water lines from hot water heater. There are two water valves underneath the bathroom sink on 1977 AS, hot and cold. I connect the outside water supply and open both valves and water is pouring out of a drain line outside underneath the back of the trailer. Am I missing a valve to shut off and where is it coming from? Any suggestions?

I believe the valves you are talking about must be low point drain valves mainly for draining the system for winterizing

Thanks for your insight. I guess I must have been having a Senior moment. It's always good to consider the obvious. It's great. No leaks. One down and nine to go on my 10 item repair bucket list. I appreciate it. Probably will have some more problems later.
