New popup owner So many questions

I have recently purchased a 2007 Rockwood premier. I think I have figured everything out except a few thing I am hoping all of you might be able shed some light on. The drain for the sink has a threaded 1 1/2 opening with no attachment. From reading a few other posted it sounds like I can buy some sort of attachment to drain the sink water into the campsite sewer if I have a full hookup site. But I have also read on here if you do connect to the sewer you could get that smell coming up the sink drain. Any suggestions on how to prevent that smell? I really dont want to let it drain in a bucket if I dont have to. My other question is the previous owner had to remove the water purifier as it was broke. Is there a certain model I need to purchase? Right now there is nothing there so I cant tell what the previous model was that was in there. Any suggestions???

You can by the adapter at most camping stores on online at Camping World. I take it this is a straight drain, no holding tank of any type? Look under your sink and see if there a U present. If you do not see it, then yes, you will get sewer fumes.

Best option is to purchase an exterior portable holding tank and run your sink water into it. Then periodically dump it into campground sewer.

On the water filter, many people just go with an aftermarket supplier like this:
RV Water Filter Store: Standard Filter Canisters for Whole RV

Better product anyway.

We have an attachment that screws on to the side which has a nipple that fits the end of a cut off hose that we run in to a portable tank, but if the hose was long enough you could easily run it to the sewer. Assuming you're close enough.
