Water in a corrugated engine hose

Have a 2019 f53 v10 ford engine (Vegas 25.6 MH). Above the right tire wheel well is a four inch corrugated hose that filled with water. I took off the hose clamp and drained it. Now I'm trying to identify what that hose is for so I can explain it to Ford. After the hours of net searches, I've had no luck even identifying it. There are two identical hoses when I look at the engine. Any ideas? My husband says they're "breather" hoses. The water was clear and odorless that i drained.

I think main reason is for that temperature exposure, external damage, defective hose and for misapplication. it's my strong believe that you will get relief from this problem if you can take care as descried issues.

I put two photos of the hose to give you a broader view of the engine. It's the hose on the left of the picture

Air intake for heat/air conditioning unit, and I believe it is a non Ford unit.

Have you been through standing water that could have splashed up? Or sprayed a hose in a upward direction on the front grill?
I have a Vegas 25.2 and have had my hoses off to get to the battery and have not experienced any water. Possibly condensation from air conditioner if something is not put together properly. You can see where the hoses hookup to the unit through the access hole under the desk, or possibly through the wheel well on the passenger side.

Yep the crowd is correct they are simply breather hose intake or exhaust to cool or heat something in the coach. The water condensation or something splashed up from the road, I wouldn’t worry about it

It was FULL of water. I'm talking two three cups of clear water. It was so full of water it weighed down the protecting panel above the wheel. We've sat parked in some heavy rain this summer, but haven't driven through any. Only have 1500 miles on it. Only 200 of those were a result of the dealer driving it from Elkardt, IN to General RV in Mt Clemens MI,. Hhmmmmmm. It'll be hard to replicate the problem for sure. Thanks for all your help identifying the hoses.

Another thought, chassis ac drains on passenger side, maybe leaking into intake hose, it wound be clear water.

Yeah, thats what im thinking.

When your AC is running do you get a puddle of water under your RV?

If you had a "heavy rain" some "might" get into this vent tube (can see how but I guess its possible). Perhaps now that you cleaned it out you wont have another problem like this?

Can you zip tie it up in the middle.... that way it a long way for driving wind / rain to get blown up into it.

Did someone wash the RV and use pressurized water on the grill area? If so ...dont do that again.
