Water valve of some type?

Can anyone tell me what this is? I bought a 74 Argosy and the man o bought it from said he had no idea what it was, he assumed it was for hooking directly to water at a site. That is kind of what it looks like to me too, but I can't seem to get any of the fittings loose.

Yes, that's the city water connection. Used to connect pressurized water to the trailer. Yours has a couple of extras on it - a small ball valve for one. The white thing on the end is used to blow the water lines with compressed air when winterizing the trailer.

The ball valve may be there because there isn't a check valve installed, or the check valve went bad.

If you can't get the fittings off, you may need to replace the city water connection. You can buy a new one with an integral check valve pretty cheap.
