    this is going to be a little bit difficult to explain. some RV's (not all) have a valve in the line from the freshwater tank to the water pump. when you turn this valve 90 degrees, the line in from the fresh water tank is shut off, but another line that can be placed in a gallon of antifreeze is opened. this is a useful feature that makes winterization much easier. in a perfect world, this would be documented in a readily available owners manual. i don't see anything that looks like a bypass valve in the picture you provided, so there probably isn't one installed in your PUP.

    if your PUP has a hot water heater, there should also be bypass valves that close the inflow of water to the heater and close the outflow of water from the heater. the water heater can then be drained by removing the threaded plug or anode.

    Help. We are camping and hookup up to a full service site. Water is working fine, sink is drawing. No problems except there is a blue hose with a cap on it behind tire that hangsanout four inches and coming out of floor. Wheniremoved it, water just pours out and when I recap of itgoes down to A small stream.

    It appears that it may be your low point drain. Meaning, it is used to drain the water system for winterizing.

    I don't know your water system so I can only guess. There may be a bypass valve to shut off water to the low point, but I don't see one in your pic. If it is leaking at the cap, you may need a new cap.
