Does this trailer have a pressure relief valve? If city water pressure is too high and the regulator has failed it( the pressure relief valve) will relieve the excess pressure. In a pinch you could go to Lowes or Home Depot and get a pressure regulator for a home sprinkler system and connect it to the end of your water supply hose then connect it to the trailer. Get one that is rated for 40# of pressure.

On many trailers of this vintage, there is a rubber hose that allows the condensate from the roof AC to drain to the ground. It passes between the inner and outer skins and goes from the AC unit, usually coming out just aft of the streetside tires.

"Fiddy bux" is slang for $50.

How can running an AC in the winter run up his water bill?

Well it's in the mid-70s in his town today, with 73% humidity. There may be condensate dripping.

How this adds to his water bill is one of the mysteries of the ages, I'm guessing.

I'll take that bet. I would be more inclined to say that it is the low point drain that is open and supply water is running out. His original description is not that clear as to the actual location of the tube which led Andy to think it was the A/C drain tube. I add $50 that we never hear from him again.

"water coming out small tube behind tires"

OK, could we please see a photo, Randy?
