Cut the line and install a 90 degree fitting.
Run a new line to the outside edge of the camper and install a valve at the end.
I'm sure someone will post a pic for you.

Thank you for the picture!!! Looks great, nice and neat. Sure will beat climbing under the camper to open the water drain...Appreciate you finding this for me...I did look at other pictures but they were not clear and looked a little messy on the install....Thanks again!!!

You're welcome. It was one of the cheapest but most handy mods I did when we had our popup. IIRC when I did mine it took about an hour. Remember - measure twice, cut once. And drip fit everything before you glue it together.

I have a friend that will help me do this, since I am a single lady here, although most of my friends say I have more tools than most...I figure if I am going to ask for help with a project the least I can do is provide the tools... I am so looking forward to heading out for a weekend in the A122S sitting in the driveway. Mom usually goes with me and after tearing down the Viking Pop Up in the rain last October and having to reset it up when we got home, decided the hardside was the way to go !!!!

That looks like a nice solution. One suggestion. If you were to lose air in that tire it might shred and probably would take out that nice plastic drain line. I'd try to locate it further away and/or put something metal and fairly stout to protect the plastic line from an exploding tire. Our Flagstaff has the dump valve located right behind the left rear tire, and that was done at the factory. I've got to protect that when we get back home.

WOW !!!! I just took another look at that picture of the MOD and that axle actually has shocks installed. It looks like it was added by the owner. That's also another project on my list when we return.

I don't think that was like our A-Frame. I don't have any problem reaching where it is right now:
