Drip from red/blue drain tubes

We have been camping for 3 nights at a full hookup site in our 28 BHBE. Just noticed a drip that is coming from the red/blue drain tubes. Specifically it seems like it's dripping beside the red tube, not exactly from the red tube. We have a pressure regulator at the tap. The water is not hot. Any ideas?

The red/blue tubes are the low point drains for the hot/cold water lines. I would check the actual valves inside the TT that control the low point drains in question. Look for any leaks around the valves and associated connections that may contribute to the water dripping outside the TT.

Thank you! It seems to have been a pressure issue (water heater filling up I guess) but to be honest I am not sure where the actual valves are for these low point drains. The only low point drain that is marked is just the fresh water tank drain outside...?

Those hot/cold low point drain valves are not always easily seen...., I have to remove a bottom drawer in my kitchen to see/get at mine.

The valves are usually straight above the the actual drain tubes inside the TT, so I would use that as a starting point. They may be behind a panel that has some screws on it, etc.

Have have 28bhbe. I think those drain valves are under the bathrooms sink in the floor. Opening those values drains the hot and cold water in the lines. Might just double check the integrity of those valves and make sure they are fully closed. I've never used the values, so I don't know much....
