Here are some pics of how I did ours.

Here is a list of supplies, as best I remember.

female thread to solvent connection PVC union
90° elbow
solvent connection to female thread PVC union
male thread to sump connection (gray plastic) (was in bag with sump pump hose)
Sump pump hose (came in 25' length)
90° sump pump connector (gray plastic)
Two hose clamps
The gray sump pump 90° elbow goes into the container opening.

You'll want to spin the union onto the threads on your camper and tighten it down, then glue the PVC 90 on to it. Hand tight is all you need when attaching the union onto the camper threads. Doing it this way you'll know the 90° elbow will be pointing down when you go to use your drain assembly.

Hope that helps!

Here is what I use. Its part of an under sink drain like in your kitchen. Bought at home improvement store. The pipe going straight up is a vent to allow air into the drain piping ( I need to cut about half of it off).

This helps it flow much better. The threads on the kitchen sink drain is the same as those on the outside drain connection on your aframe. The black piece on the bottom of the tee is what comes with your aframe.

I built something similar to outandabout setup. I was going to time the sink draining time vs the hose adaptor. The speed of draining was such that I didn't bother testing the hose adaptor. The key here is that the hose head is flooded with water and turns the hose into a powerful siphon. With the original hose adaptor, air in the p-trap retards draining - my take.
