Grey Water Mod for A-Frame camper

Yesterday was 4 days since returning from our last camp trip. DH was not happy with my fast solution of using a clear tube clipped to the inside of a bucket to catch the grey water. It annoyed him & he said he would make a sewer mod for the A Frame when we returned home. He wasnt kidding, shortly after he woke up, he headed off to Home Depot for parts, he came home and disappeared inside his shop for about 30 minutes & then came into the house to tell me that he was done with his grey water mod for El Beso. It's her own grey water sewer kit for stand alone or full campground hookups!

Whatta guy!

Part 1) He used the grey water adapter that came with the trailer, bought a new hose and cut to desired length to fit into an aquatainer. He then modifed the cap on the aquatainer with a new fitting to connect to the new hose for a stand alone grey water collection container.

Part 2) He then put fittings on the remainng length of hose it so that it could be used to connect with the adapter hose coming out the side of the trailer. This longer hose would then be screwed on to a modified sewer cap and onto the campground's sewer hook up. He modified two sewer cap sizes since he wasnt sure which size we might encounter at a campground.

A nice looking setup.

I found that unscrewing the hose can loosen the connector on the top of the Aqua-tainer, instead of disconnecting the hose from it. To prevent that, I put a 45 degree elbow on the top, which had the added benefit of reducing the kinking on the hose from sagging.

Can you tell me what parts you used to modify the top of the Aquatainer? I need to do this project myself. Thanks!
