Sink and shower outs - what fitting?

What am I supposed to do with these? I can't seem to find what adapter I need for these? The sink runs out the driver's side of the pup, the shower runs out the passenger side. Do I somehow connect them to run out together?

I've wandered around Mensards, Fleet Farm, I've shopped Amazon...I don't even really know what I'm looking for.

Measure the dia of the outlets, then go to the plumbing section for sink drain P traps, etc.

Will do! Then what, a hose to run it somewhere? I suppose a sewer hose from the RV section?

Blue tote tank/bucket or some kind of an adapter to run it into a sewer.

It's a 1.5" cap that comes in two pieces. One piece is a ring that screws onto the outlet and the other is a barb fitting that goes through the ring with a rubber gasket between them. You would just push a piece of garden hose onto the end of the barb fitting and drain it into a tote or something. We used the 7 gal blue containers from Wally World with ours. The trailer originally came with a set of those fittings. I'll try to find a link to what they look like. Of course, you can do as suggested and go to Lowe's or Home Depot and just make something.

The link above is probably a better choice, as the original design is very slow draining. This is one of those times where you get to be creative and play around.

If I were to do it again, I'd do the following. The larger diameter tubing will make everything drain MUCH better without having to make some kind of vent system. The Aquatainers being refered to are those blue totes from Wally World.

They are PVC 1.5" npt thread. Very common general piping. I have mine T'd together into one 7gal water tote. I used a 1.5" to 3/4" reducer and 3/4" pond hose and the tote fitting is also 3/4"; but as was stated it's very slow to drain. I'll be adding a vent tube or increasing the hose size this spring. Have some fun and be creative. My brother just opens them and puts buckets under to catch. Not such a great plan with kids or pets around though.
If you come up with something new or interesting post it here and share with us.

I picked up some p-traps from Menards that worked well enough as far as connecting to the threaded outlets. Now I just need a hose system to pull it away from the camper.

What is the etiquette around tubing the sink water away from your site into the grass or gravel? There were two popups at the campground I noticed that just had tubing/hose running away from the camper.

Otherwise, dump it into a container (aquatainer) and then take it the campsite's dump station, I assume.
