Here is the parts list. I'll give each piece, starting from the camper and working to the container. All sizes are 1 1/2".
- female thread to solvent connection PVC union
- 90° elbow
- solvent connection to female thread PVC union
- male thread to sump connection (black or gray plastic...was in bag with sump pump hose)
- Sump pump hose (came in 25' length...cut to desired size)
- 90° sump pump connector (gray plastic)
- Two hose clamps
- The gray sump pump 90° elbow goes into the container opening.
Note: Securely thread the "female thread to solvent connection PVC union" (the very first piece) on to the camper (tightened down to where it will be when in use for drainage) and then glue the 90° elbow to it. This will ensure that when the two pieces are permanently attached together that they'll be pointing in the correct direction when attached for drainage...down.
I had considered using a straight section of hose, straight down to the container. I didn't for two reasons. First, I like that the container is tucked under the camper somewhat. Second, and more importantly, the distance from the drain on the camper to the container on the ground will change depending on whether or not I will need to raise that side of the camper for leveling.
The container I'm using is a 5 gallon Coleman fresh water container. I filed out the hole a little with a rounded file to make the sump 90° elbow easier to fit in and remove. It slides in snugly, but slides out easily when it's time to empty the container.
I know a lot of folks use the 7 gallon Aquatainers. I don't know how the size of the opening on those compares to the Coleman container. I used the Coleman only because we already had it.
