What is this for ?

We have just got our first AS, a 25ft rear twin classic limited 2007, and we have found out a lot (like the PO was a s+%& bag and hid any and every fault he could )
We are now almost done with fixing things but Im stumped on this red topped spigot - to the left is the inlet (I think) for the black tank flush and to the right is the city water inlet - is the red topped one hot water out by chance ? If so how do you turn it on and can I hook up an outside shower or is this some kind of drain ? Any insight would help

Maybe it is a drain line for the HW heater? Or a drain for the lines? Open it and see what happens

Since it has a siphon breaker you can presume it is an exit only so drain or outside water. Maybe the previous owner liked to water the daisies when boon docking....

I can't see where it comes from, but my trailer has a similar faucet near the city water inlet. It is just a cold water outlet. In my trailer, under the bathroom sink there is a check valve in line with it and a valve bypassing the check valve. I think I figured it out. The check valve is above the water pump pressure but below typical city water pressure. With the bypass valve closed, the outside faucet works when connected to city water but doesn't work when boondocking using water out of the tank with the pump. With the valve open the outside faucet always works.

It is both an outside spigot and a low point drain...specifically for the water heater. I have a short hose and shower head for mine, for washing beach feet, dogs and gkids.
