Yep, used it all last season with no problems. I keep it attached to the camper, no need to take it off.

That is interesting. I was just thinking I would remove it and store it. But why? I think your right. Just keep it on there.

I take it you put a 3" termination cap on it.

Vin.

Grey drain outlet setup

Exactly! There's a termination cap on there with a tether connected to it which attaches to the tether nub or whatever it's called :-)

I just set this up on my HW27 this weekend. I had to cut off the factory sewer hose storage but since it was to short for the sewer hose I use I did not care.

This will greatly speed up the draining of the grey tank. It used to take forever to drain the tank through the converter I was using. Thanks so much for sharing this idea.

I do not understand. Is your plumbing much different than the other HW models? The floor plans all show the toilet in the same spot and I figured the black and grey set ups are all the same.

Why did you have to cut the sewer hose storage tube? From what I see here all you need to do is build the adapter and screw it to the 1 1/2" grey water outlet. That is the beauty of it. No need to modify the existing pop up at all.

Or am I misunderstanding your comments? Sorry if I am.

Vin.

Hi Vin,

The pipe for the gray tank on my unit is located right beside the hose storage tube, almost touching it. When I went to attach the 3" to 1.5" reducer to the gray drain, it would not fit. The 3" width of the pvc piece required more space than I had without really pulling on the pipe and risking a break.

I could have probably removed the bracket that is holding the pipe in place and pulling it over some to get more clearance but I did not want to put much pressure on the plumbing and risk breaking it.

As a drain setup, it works great. I was using the sewer hose rinser adapter and it was really slow and would clog.

Maybe your pipe is not as close to the hose storage as mine and you will not have the issue. For the convenience of the drain, I would not think twice of cutting off that small hose storage.

I have one that I built using a fence post mounted on the bumper that provides a much better solution for a longer hose and all of the connectors.

Finally bought my items for this same set up Kinma. Like you my HD only carried the while. Oh well....just a bit of black paint is needed.

After feeling the parts, I am not going to keep it on the gray drain. It seems too heavy and I would not want to catch something on it and break something. It is easy enough to just screw on and off when needed.

Thanks everyone for the idea. It is going to be great to flush out the black hose after I dump the black.

Vin.

Yeah vin I remove mine every time too. You could put a support strap on it if you wanted to leave it in place. Think I'll be painting mine this week. Have to rough up the pvc and prim it first so the paint sticks n stays better.

Just used it today and still keep it on 24/7. It doesn't sag, nor protrude much more than the black gate. One less thing to store :-)
