Question Sink drain water problem.

Our trailer did not come with any kind of adapter to let the water drain from the sink. Right now it just drools down the side of the camper.
Can someone link me to some ideas for drainage modification? I know I've seen some but dang if I can find anything.
Thanks,

Where the water exits the camper, there must be some sort of fitting...is it threaded or a hose barb?

Could you post a picture of it?

I found the attachment in the bag with the owner manual and extra keys, screws amd fuses...I went tp the hardware store and bought a length of clear tubing to push onto the conical attachment and into a bucket/container.

Our popup had an adapter with barbs on it that you can put a piece of clear tubing or garden hose onto and then run that away from the camper to a holding container or bucket. You can get them at camping supply places too. I just bought a second one, as I have a short piece of hose for a bucket, and now a longer one for sites where I have sewer hookup to connect my grey water to.

What I found out though was that our sink has a trap, but no vent. So just like F1100turbo posted in his pic above, I am doing the same. My out put is 1 1/2" diameter and I have a PVC Tee connected to that. On the top, you see his black piece, that is an Air Admittance Valve, available at Lowes or Home Depot. This will allow air into the system to vent your drain line and allow water to flow easier, without letting the grey water odors back thru the vent. This is also nice to have if you are at a site with sewer hookup that you are going to drain your grey water into.
