Aft relief tube dripping through floor below sink

I have two copper tubes about a foot apart relieving though the floor under the kitchen sink. The aft of the two is dripping what seems to be water, but I cannot track its source inside the base cabinet. Any ideas where this back one comes from? THNX!

Those 2 pipes are for drains.

The valves for those drains are immediately above the floor and could be somewhat recessed.

One of the drains is for the water line and the other should be for the water tank.

However, there have been some installations where one valve drains the cold water line and the other valve drains the hot water line. In that case, the water tank has it's own small drain valve.

Those are low point drains. Try looking for a pair of red knobs on those pipes, and making sure they're tight.

Terry got it in one. Those three red valves are only to be left open when draining your trailer at the end of the season.

Welcome to airforums.com, by the way! I like your choice of trailers!

How about some photos of it for us, kaiaua?
