X2. Many of us ensure any waste hose (4" or garden hose) has a 'p-trap' formed in the hose.

Asiu;

I have a HepvO valve in my basement bathroom connected to my shower. And it works great. Drains well, and no back odor.

Dumping gray/black water at Yellowstone

I camped in my Aframe last year at Yellowstone. Gray water-I use a 5 gallon tank to drain the sink into and then empty it into the flush toilet, making sure to keep the toilet seat up. My A214HW has a cassette toilet which I transport to the dump station.

Many teardrop campers are in the same boat with no graywater holding tanks. It is legal at most state parks and boondocking sites to run it through a hose to the ground somewhere if you use earth friendly dish soap.

In most places it is illegal to drain graywater directly onto the ground. In some places it is legal:

Thanks for the update. I was informed wrongly.

We sometimes use our gray water to put out our camp fire. Gets rid of the gray and preserves the fresh.

Are you sure about that? Under my sink is a RV drain trap which looks like a cylinder that is bulbous at the bottom.

If you're just trying to stop odor coming thru the hose and into the camper, get a shutoff valve that you'd use on your garden hose. Only open it when you're dumping water. Something like this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B095LWNHD3...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

Thanks for the suggestion. After looking into all suggestions so far, I think I will pick the most economical way, i.e. garden hose with Camco 39322 that PapaGlenn suggested.

While camping at the Madison Campground in Yellowstone NP, we witnessed a camper get warned for dumping his dishwater next to a tree. All grey water is to be dumped into the sink located in the enclosed dish washing station at the restrooms. The Ranger was in a good mood that day, he could have cancelled their stay for the evening.

Yep, many advocate for this practice, stating that it's fine to do. The reality is that many National, State and County parks ban this practice in their campgrounds.
