Grey water drainage

Has anyone devised a way to connect a hose from the external sink drain to the sewer pipe at an RV park/campground?
Thanks

doesn't your external sink drain into a holding tank?
Do you mean your outside kitchen?
or do you have some other setup???

drain

there is an opening on the outside of my A122 that comes from the sink drain. Most people put a bucket out but I want a closed system.

Just make sure you have a long enough hose to go to the sewer fitting to allow some drain water to collect at a low point to minimize chances of sewer gasses entering your trailer!

I used one of these for 20 yrs with my popup:

Barker 10887 5 Gallon Original Tote-Along Portable Holding Tank | American RV Company

Uses a short double ended, regular female fitting, hose.

How are u venting the setup to keep water flowing. Does the vent on the container do it?

Several people I camp with use 5 gallon water containers, like the one below, for their outdoor sinks. They work well and, depending on use, can last a couple days.

Hmmm. Good question. I don't recall a vent, as I would remove the hose and there was a plastic cap that pushed over the threads on the cap when I took it to dump it. I never had a problem with venting, though.

I actually more of a problem with the drain line in the popup kinking once in a while (it was a "swing level" galley; not a flip-up).
