This is on our new-to-us 2002 Lance 811. The city water connection is on the street side under the sink, the cable connection is there also. On the back of the camper I noticed another hose connection, as well as this spigot thingy down by the bottom. I thought the hose connection might be a black tank flush but the black tank is on the other side of the camper in the rear. The fresh tank is all the way up front. That little access door is fishing pole storage.

Anybody know what this hose inlet and spigot might be for?

Spigot is likely the FW tank drain.
No idear what the other hose connection is.

Spigot is probably the low-point line drain when you want to empty your FW tank.
I have two spigots on my Lance, one hot, one cold, low point drains.

Don't know about that the hose connection -- could be an outlet for external wash-down hose? Try running your pump and see if water squirts out at ^^^ pressure. IF so, then it's for external wash off mud or whatever [emoticon]

Does that model have a slide? On our Eagle Cap, that "hose" cap is the access hole for the manual crank handle.

Ours also use simular hose cap to cover access to slide-out manual crank- seems a bit low for that though.
Spigot definitely drain

As others have mentioned, the one with the cap is the manual crank access.

That makes sense, the slide is right there. Innovative way to seal off the crank port! I do have 2 low point drains that are hoses that hang down below the bath, I guess the spigot could be dedicated to FW tank drain...

Looks like city water inlet. Same position on my Rockwood. Or could be inlet hose for anti-freeze. Look at your water lines.

Valve is standard water tank drain.

City water hookup? The lowest one sure looks like a tank drain, that is what we had on our S&S.
