A new leak

I drained all tanks, hooked up city water, and now my new 4212 is dripping water (at the rate of about 1 drip every 5 seconds) out of the two vent tubes under the curb side of the unit near the front under the cargo bay. It's labeled "low point drain" but I know that it's not because there is no valve to drain. That's on the other side. There are just 2 drain tubes that look like the over flow drain tubes. Drips are only coming out of one of the two tubes. I have a feeling that this is connected somehow to the water that has been coming out of the rear toilet when we have the fresh water tank full. Any thoughts? This drip is only happening when we are on city water.

There should be some valves that go to the washer prep in that area. Mine has 2 inline valves in the overhead of the large storage and also a small hatch in the front that accesses the low point drain shutoff valves.

My rig is different but the washer is in the same area.

Those are the low point drains behind the panel in basement on the curb side. There are 2 valves buried down low behind panel.

That was EXACTLY it. I hadn't had the chance to log back in and tell anyone, but in the cargo bay behind the curb side panel, there are the two low point drain valves. apparently 1 had not been closed fully and was only slightly up. A quick trip to Camping world, problem solved. We thought it might also solve the leak we are having in the rear toilet area, but alas, we couldn't get that lucky. Thank you though, hopefully this will help some other newbie in the future.
