Did this just start after the cold weather????
I'm not familiar with your trailer model, but it sounds like the line is cracked or a fitting is loose.
You have detailed the model and year your trailer is so those with the same type may be able to help you.

Is the tube one of the drain lines?

Airstream water systems have drains installed so one can drain the system for winter storage. If that's what you're dealing with, it should have a valve nearby that will close off that tube. Look "upstream" of the leak along that tube.

Airstream water lines are installed above the floor, so they're usually easy to inspect.

If you have an owner's manual, the system should be explained in that. If not, Airstream should be able to supply you one for a year model that recent. Their factory website is a good one. I've had good luck with their customer support people, although our unit is much older.

Are you talking about the drain for the AC?

Open the front closet door and lift the closet floor. In the front left corner you should find a hole down through the subfloor. There are 2 drain valves below the floor. Before you attempt anything see if you can reach down through the hole or crawl under the trailer to see if water is dripping from either of these valves. If it is one of the valves they are 1/4 turn while pulling on the valve stem to open and 1/4 turn while pushing on the valve to close. They are not easy to work and hard to get at so be sure that is the problem before you do anything with them.

Under the trailer behind the center passenger side tire is the drain for the fresh water tank. Check that valve for leaking.

Under the floor of the closet is the Auto Fill Valve. Open the center closet door, you may have to lift the heater tube, you will see a 1/4 in. copper line coming and electric solenoid off the plastic water lines. The switch for this system is on the control panel. If the solenoid leaks or was left on that would have filled the fresh water tank and with city pressure may have cracked something.
