Water from sink?

New to camping here: how do you handle water going down the sink drain when camping at National or State Parks with no services?

Most of them have a central dump station. I carry a tote tank with me just in case I need to drain a tank.

I don't think the Rockwood Hardsides have holding tanks. At least, the manual doesn't talk about one.

You can place the tote tank outside the camper and hook to it for you holding capacity and dump when it's full. Look on Amazon, they have a great selection. Key search is RV tote tank.

Do a search for "Grey Water Set up" (I'm on my phone and can't link to it).

That's how I leaned how to do it and ordered an adapter suggested. It works perfect, but does drain a little slow. Others have set up something more complicated but I use so little water inside that this works for me.

I have a portable grey water tank with two wheels with a removable metal hook that fits the tow ball on my tow vehicle. When almost full I wheel it to the car, hook it up and very slowly/ 5 mph drive it to the dump area. I stow it inside the camper when I travel, so can pull it out first for setup.

Use a 7 gallon aquatainer, Unless you do dish washing inside, it will do for a weekend with careful use.



The photo is from Ozandus of a Fleetwood popup.

The setup can be simpler with a garden hose. The aquatainer cap has a 3/4 FPT opening, so get a plastic adapter, 3/4 MPT to 3/4 MHT. You should have received an adapter to attach a hose to the 1.5 inch MPT outlet on the camper. If you don't have one they are pretty cheap.

Could someone find the adapter for attaching a hose to the 1.5 inch MPT outlet. .. and post a link. So I know exactly what I need to buy. My used a122s didn't have the adapter.
