Can anyone identify these things?

Totally new to pop up camping, but I'm wondering what these two things on my camper are for. 1992 Jayco 1006 Pop Up. First photo is some type of metal / aluminum connection with the word "HOT" written on it. Also, is it missing a cover or something? The second item is some kind of plastic drain pipe? But a cap screws on it as well. Thanks.

Exhaust gasses will come out of the metal furnace vent, so keep stuff away that could melt or burn. You may consider adding a screen over it that camping stores sell to keep out wasps, mice, etc. if they get in, furnace will likely not start, or stop because it can't vent.

Does the furnace vent suppose to have a hose coming out of it or a cover when not in use? And what does fresh water fill mean? Thanks for our super fast response!

furnace vent is just as it states. All it does is vent out the hot exhaust. Some people purchase a stainless steel wire mesh to keep critters and bugs out. This is not required.

The fresh water fill; there is an onboard water tank, shove a garden hose, into the port and fill until it starts to over fill. Some popup's have an electric water pump, that will pump water out of the tank to the sink. Some popup's have a manual hand pump at the sink. Also note; many popups have what is called a city water connect. This is where you connect your garden hose right to the camper, and it pressurizes the plumbing so it works like when you are at home.

Now that I have that written, I wonder if that is not your waste water drain, as you say do you connect a hose to it? The straight on view makes it look like the fresh water fill. But if it has male hose threads on it, it will be your sink drain. Easy way to test; remove the cover, pour a couple cups of water down the kitchen sink drain and see if it comes out that port. if it does, it is your sink drain. If it is the drain, most people take an old garden hose cut off a 3 to 5 foot piece from the female end of the hose. This way you do not accidently use it for drinking water. Then they put the cut end into a 5 gallon bucket or a waste tank tote, for disposal.

That's not a fresh water fill, it's a sink drain. Our old pop-up was like that. If you look at it carefully, the threads are wrong to be a fresh waster hook-up; it's the male thread on it, not female, as you would expect for a fresh water fill. What we did was connect a 3' length of garden hose to it with a female end and run it into a 5 gallon bucket.

If you do find a way to use it as a fresh water fill, you'll find a heck of a mess in your trailer. The salesman told it was a fresh water fill, but I didn't believe him, fortunately. What made me question him was where was the sink supposed to drain to?

Thanks for all your responses. I will test it to see if it's a sink drain. I do have a different connection on the same side of my camper that's labeled "city water" connection. I will assume that this is for hooking up pressurized "city water." However, if city water isn't available, how does one go about using the sink?
