Unrecognizable hoses

What are the two hoses coming out bottom just below the Alde furnace vent. One is 1/2" with a brass plug. Other is open ended and looks to be 1" - 1 1/4". Click image for larger version

Dump hose and drain hose for the Alde fluid. Dump incase too much fluid is in the system. There is another one more toward the middle of the trailer which releases hot water when there is too much water pressure in the system. This by the way should be released and dumped about once a month in cold weather we have found much more often in warm or hot weather.

Thanks. I know about the drain line for dumping water to ensure air cushion. So both are for Alde? Any idea why small one has brass plug in it?

Hi

The other end of the "overflow" tube can be seen at the top of the fill tank over the toilet.

Just got my trailer back from jc for various repairs. Got home and have a steady drip of what appears to be clear fluid but not water(wonít evaporate and has lubricity. Probably glycol but is clear. Any thoughts as to why I am seeing this. Early 17 classic September 16 build.

Could be overflow from the Alde tank, which if they replaced the fluid is possible. Check the reservoir in the bathroom and see what level it's at. That said, if the Alde has not been used for heat the fluid would not have expanded and should not be coming out at all. Yours was made about the same time ours was, ours was late August.

Did some investigating tonight. Does anyone know where the overflow tube from the overflow reservoir goes? It does not appear to run back to the Alde unit- (there are two tubes coming directly off the Alde unit and through a rubber stopper to the outside drain). Where would this drain to?

John, you may think this is crazy but go to the rear storage compartment and look to your left, past the light, far upper left corner. There you should see a rubber elbow joint. Make sure, positive, that joint is absolutely clear from the wooden partition. My elbow joint got punctured by that 90* corner and the results were a complete loss of fluid just like you are describing. We have the same build date. There’s a thread with photos and the remedy on here somewhere. This happened in March out of the blue, no warning and everything had been working great for the previous 17 months. Just a suggestion...

By rear storage compartment you are speaking about the exterior roadside compartment under the twin correct?

No, I meant the rear, not road or curb, at the bumper. The largest exterior storage compartment. Inside the compartment Far, upper left . You have to almost squeeze into the area to see it.

The discussion on this is buried in the Much Ado Alde Thread, Page 45. I would share the link but I couldn’t make it work. But there are photos to help guide you.

Regarding the larger black hose exiting trailer beneath Alde system. If you position yourself below the trailer and look into the end of the large black hose, there should be two smaller tubes located inside, one clear and one black. The black tube should be connected to the Alde automatic air vent. The auto air vent might be fouled open and glycol is leaking from it to the small black tube overboard on to the ground beneath trailer. I and others have experienced the same problem, contact your local dealer. Where are you located?

Piping through rear storage looks okay. Not a ton of space but doesnít look like itís being rubbed.

Cwo7241- yes. I can see those tubes on the inside as well leading to the rubber stopper. I am in the Cleveland area so I take to JC for service. Unfortunately I just got it back this past weekend from JC for other issues.
