Water shutoff valve - help needed

I just got a 2014 25FB Flying Cloud and am in the process of dewinterizing it. There is water flowing out of this tube and I would appreciate any help in locating the valve. I've located multiple valves, but not the one that controls this. I am assuming that it may be an overflow for the hot water heater since it is right below that area. I've attached a picture of both the tube and the hot water heater.

Thanks!

Drain

Hello AirReg. I don't think the water heater has an overflow tube. Ar least mine doesn't. That tube is either the drain for the frig or the drain for the AC. Good luck
Happy camping nm1oqrz

One other note, when the city water is connected, water comes gushing out of this tube. No problems otherwise.

Plumbing Diagrams - 2014

I am trying to determine why water gushes out of a white tube under where the hot water heater is in my 2014 Flying Cloud 25FB. My manual has plenty of electrical diagrams, but no plumbing diagrams.

Does anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks

I believe it's a low point water drain.

If I recall AS started putting a white panel next to the water heater side in the storage bin.

Older (prior to 2014) versions did not have the panel which hides the water heater, and your shut off valve is probably behind that panel.

I find it hard to believe that with a 2014 Airstream you did not receive an owners manual. I would get one, regardless.

Could that have been a drain that was left open from winterizing? Can you follow the tube to a shut off valve?
