HW296 gray water dumping

Ok so we are new to pup camping, just bought a slightly used 2014 HW296. On our first trip out, I noticed gray water leaking out under the unit. Is there an overflow vent in the plumbing? So I went to dump the gray water but did not see a way to get it to flow through the main sewer line - other campers we rented I think the gray dumped through the black. Do you just run a hose to the sewer? Is there an adaptor to go from the gray outlet to a hose?

That is another owners post. Alot of us owners have done this im trying to post a pic of it. The 1 1/2 pvs is the wrong part number but it is called a clean out. All parts other then the valterra adp is from lowes or home depot.

Or just get this Valterra T01-0091VP 1-1/2" x 3/4" 90° Drain Connector

You can attach a garden hose but it takes about 10 - 15 min to empty the tank. Might be a better way if at full hook up.

I built an adaptor as described, it worked great! Thanks for the inputs. Now I have another question/issue. It send that the gray water tank capacity on my hw296 is low our there is a leak. If I keep the valve closed, in a short period of time running the sink, water starts dripping under the trailer. I have not crawled under looking for leaks our cracks. Is this normal for the gray to leak, is this an overflow mechanism?

I should add, I like to collect water in the gray tank to flush the line after draining the black. Else I could leave great open all the time connected to a sewer
