Drain holes

There are a two holes in the bottom of the fiberglass under the side rear of the trailer. They are right behind the mud flaps maybe a couple of inches toward the rear. Are they for drainage or for some other application. Thanks Stan

Drainage. Because ETI builds a tubbed trailer (encased in fiberglass), water could get trapped if there was a leak either in the plumbing or vents or windows, etc. ETI planned ahead with a method for it to drain.

You will really appreciate them, for example, if someone leaves the water pump on and the faucet bounces ON while driving a long distance. Evidently, it doesn’t take too long to empty the large water tank that way. You’ll finally notice it at the gas station, where you will see water pouring out of those dang holes…
