Shower/Sink Drain

I tried using the barbed fittings on the 1 1/2 drains with garden hoses and a Y fitting to the sewer opening......I think the ball valve in the y fitting is creating a choke point because the shower will back up some so...... Why aren't there any 1 1/2 sewer lines for at least grey water.

I'm on the lookout too. Post back if you find something. I'm also currently using a couple garden hoses on the barb fittings to a Y connector and into the sewer. I haven't tried using the shower, but haven't had a backup with the sink yet.

I have ordered the 90 degree fitting that you can screw on a garden hose and not use the barbed fitting........also looking for a y fitting without ball valves in them. I think they are called full flow or something like that. Swann makes them.

I got tired of looking and got an adapter 1.5" thdd X slip. I plan to get an adptr from 1.5" to 3/4 inch so I can use a short piece of 3/4 pipe between it and a 3/4 inch Tee. I plan to put a screen over the up end of the Tee and a 3/4 X 1/2 inch adapter on the down end. Then I will glue the hose into the adapter.

Having the up end open should help with the gravity flow the Forest River bozos never thought would be a problem but it is. Yeah my dealer said I'm the only guy in the world with this complaint!

The ones I just bought (link above) work better than the barb fittings that come with the trailer but still has vacuum lock issues........I drilled a very small vent hole on the face to provide ventilation so this should work even better.

The fitting on my unit has a fitting that has a hose thread fitting and when using an old section of 5/8" hose, it drains rather well, better than I thought it would. Hose barb fitting has a small hole opening.

I have decided to just use 1.5 in. hose,you can find reducers at a hardware store, the 3/4 in garden hose idea will not work it is too small for sink or shower drains.You can go from 1.5 in to a 3 in hose with reducers at ACE hardware, it takes some thinking and experimenting but you can do it.
