that's where you can tee in to suck antifreeze into the system when winterizing, there should be some valves there, to valve out the tank form the pump, and pull from this port to the pump instead....

I don't think that fitting is for winterizing since it's on the hot line. I'd check and see where that line goes.

I like to think they are consistent and red piping is used for hot... But did you see the elbow on the left side of the pic? Connecting blue to red....

Yes, it is for winterizing. I have the Freedom Elite version of the same coach. At our PDI I speculated that was the purpose but the camping world fellow assured me it was not (although he did not know what it WAS for?!). In an unrelated communication with the helpful people at Thor I asked and they said it was indeed for winterizing - to suck antifreeze directly from a bottle. So this spring when I was de-winterizing I tried it. I sucked water from a milk bottle and it worked a treat. Surprisingly, there is just the one valve - you don't need to first isolate the tank. Perhaps that is why the connection is higher than the tank so that gravity can assist. It was a pleasant surprise to me to find this feature on a budget/entry level coach!
