White hose protruding from under the

One quick question on winterizing our 2012 FB Flying Cloud.

There is a small hose protruding from under the AS by the back access door. I believe I had closed the handle on the pipe on the inside of the access door and when I was adding antifreeze I notice the antifreeze coming out of it. Is that suppose to happen? It did not when I turnt the small the handle the other way on the pipe that is inside the access door.

Also do you leave the fresh water drain open or closed for the winter?

Thanks
John

Don't know about your hose end and leaky AF. Nothing on mine like that. I leave may fresh tank drain open in winter.

Air conditioner drain tube?? Can't think of any other small white tubes.

Freshwater tank drain, I leave open.

If it is the AC drain and I think it is why would antifreeze becoming out of it? When I turnt the vale inside the access department it stop draining.

Shouldn't be AF for sure if it is A/C drain ... perplexing.

That drains the part of the piping that the low point drains cannot drain; the valve is in the storage locker. I asked Airstream about that when I bought my 25 FB.

Your low-point drain is open...turn the valve handle the other way, I think clockwise

My thanks to all for their assistance. The value is closed and the antifreeze has been added. Now if I take it out in the winter it will truly be dry camping.
