Dewinterizing... What is this? (2 things)

We haven't started yet but this is our first spring with a TT (2007 23b hybrid). These are pictures of stuff in a cabinet by the fridge. I'm just wondering what the purpose is of the tube that is open?

Also, any thoughts on that black wire that is attached to nothing? Maybe it goes where the orange and red is? Click image for larger version

The tube is for winterizing. It goes in a jug of antifreeze and there should be a valve on that tube that must be opened when adding the antifreeze. Another valve goes to the fresh water tank, that must be closed when using the tube, open in normal operation.

Don't know about the black wire but the clear tube is used to draw your pink antifreeze from o bottle when you winterize, there should be a valve that it's attached to on the pump side. Make sure it's closed when you de winterize (summerize) your plumbing

Typical water pump equipped with winterizing bypass valves. The clear hose goes in the antifreeze jug. The image shows the valves in the NORMAL OPERATING position. For winterizing, the valve on the clear hose would be open and the valve on the suction line coming from the fresh water tank would be closed.

I would not attach the black to any red period. not knowing what it goes to I would cap I and test the pump to make sure it works and if it does I would leave it capped

Not familiar with your unit. What is that next to the plumbing in the other space. Furnace

It should look like this for winter and in spring you can sanitize your lines from this location also. You can also recover your antifreeze by placing a bucket under the low point drains, opening them then open the H&C lines. Should be able to retrieve about a half gal.

I just looked at mine. That wiring is hidden behind the luan divider. The orange wire may relate to the refrigerator and the furnace in your unit.

My suggestion is to email Jayco customer service with the first eight digits of your VIN and ask for a wiring diagram. You might try sending that picture in that email and you might get an answer from Jayco.

Definitely going to inquire with Jayco about that wire! The other side of that wood panel is where the heat comes out (furnace I guess?) and above it is the fridge.

Thanks!!
