72 Safari Fresh Water Drain

So I'm still trouble shooting the water system on this trailer. Tried filling up the fresh water tank and noticed water coming out of a plastic tuber poking out of the belly pan under the tank. Further inside inspection shows a water outlet from the tank that has a T on it with one side going down to the drain tube and the other side going into the water pump. from what I can tell there is no water valve in this run to stop the water from draining out and sending it only to the water pump. Any thoughts on this or what not should do?
Thanks

It sounds like the water tank drain valve is open. There should be a valve under the floor and accessible under the sink area. That is how my 75 Trade Wind was built.

There isn’t a valve and am wondering if a PO removed it and replaced with a T connection to let it drain out the bottom. Perhaps a freeze protection move.

Fresh Water Tank Plumbing 72 Safari

So there is a T that comes up from the fresh water tank and has a drain hose that goes out the belly pan to the ground then the other side goes into the water pump. When I was filling the tank the water just goes out of the drain and not to the pump. Shouldn't there be valves on this? One to stop water from going to the drain line and another to stop water going to the pump so that it is forced to drain the tank. I can not find any other valves under the sink or flooring.

Between the grey connectors is the T that goes to the drain without any valve. Anybody got any thoughts on this?
