2002 Ultimate Advantage mystery drain

Question for you other UA owners.....I have a 3/8 white plastic drain hose that comes out underneath the chassis on the passenger side between the water compartment and the pass through storage compartment.
Literally between the walls. It protrudes from underneath....but can only be seen with a mirror or laying on the ground.

Water has been dripping from that drain all weekend. No other leaks are apparent. The water compartment and frig are dry. The bathroom sink faucets and toilet water supply don't seem to be leaking where I can see or feel.

Any thoughts or clues would be greatly appreciated.

Only thing I can think of is AC drain.
Or the low point system drain.

I'm kinda confused; my water compartment(wet bay) is on drivers side. On my MH, the water pump and fresh water storage tank viewing is on passenger side, but the rear wheel well is adjacent, then battery compartment forward of wheel well.

It should read 'water pump compartment'.

My layout from back to front is A/C, water tank over the batteries, rear wheels, water heater, water pump compartment, pass through storage, then 3 storage bays.

It is interesting that it stopped leaking when the water supply was turned off. So 2 things....1...I'm glad Winne put in a drain....and 2....where the heck is that water coming from?

It's not the water tank overflow...mine is right behind the water tank. It's not grey or black water. Doesn't seem to be close enough to the frig to be the drain for anything. But it does fit right under the passenger side bath....toilet and sink.

Going to take the bath apart next weekend and take a look.

Jim,
On my 2002 Ultimate Freedom that is the frig drain line. I found out when I turned on the pump with the ice maker water line disconnected. All that water came out the frig drain line.

Could you have a cracked or broken ice maker line? Is there a shut off valve that feeds the ice maker (assuming you have an ice maker)? Mine is under the kitchen sink on the other side of the coach.

I do have an icemaker.....and the line wasn't leaking where I could see it....which probably means it's leaking where I can't see it.

I'll turn off the water feed to it the next time I run the coach (it's not being used now). Thanks for the tip.

It does sound like the drain from the reefer pan to me. Look inside the reefer access area and find the hole in the drain pan, then pour some water there and see where it comes out underneath.
