    Look under the trailer and see where it's coming from. It could be a drain valve for the water tank or drain valves at the low spots in the hot & cold water lines that are used to winterize the system.

    WeRJuliIan If it's "Aluminum", why not "Sodum" and "Uranum"?

    ^^ x2

    Your water tank almost certainly has a drain, underneath somewhere.
    Usually a short hose with a valve on the end, more or less reachable by bending down and looking underneath.
    In the best case, somebody left the valve open, the last time the tank was drained, and all you need to do is close the valve.

    If you're less lucky, it may be a damaged water line or even the tank itself, but a drain left open is far more likely. I'd check for that before you start climbing underneath :)

    The drain valve could also be found under one of the dinette seats if that is where the tank is found.

    Did you find it? Just FYI if you put your camper and tow vehicle make / model / year in your signature it will help people be able to accurately give information. Click on your username at the top-right of the page and click the "Signatures" section. Happy camping!
