Roo 233s outdoor sink mod

Hello everyone

I have a 2021 233s. My plan is to turn the outdoor brackets for the grill into an outdoor sink. Do not want to grill that close to the camper. Majority says not to.

However I bought a stainless steel sink and plumbing accessories do use for that spot. For hot and cold water I used the low point drains right underneath. I attached two shut off valves and reconnected the low point drain plugs below that. As of now Iím going to drain the sink into a 7 gallon water bucket. However I would love to figure out a way to run a pipe underneath to drain out the other side.

The bottom of the camper is insulated with the liner. I do not want to cut into that tie into the drain plus I wouldnít have enough slope. Anybody have any ideas?

What majority says not to use the BBQ. Do you really think the Mfg would continue to provide such if there were real vice perceived problems with the provide BBQs. I use mine every chance I get. JMHO

I would use a flexible hose off the bottom of the sink run under the rig to a 15 quart oil drain style pan (like used with diesel truck oil change) allows for drop and easy draining when breaking camp.

something to consider if you do plumb it to the gray or black tank make sure you add a check valve close to the tank to prevent back flow as the tank fills. another way may be to run a small discharge pump off the bottom of the sink to a 1/2 line up thru the floor by a bathroom sink or kitchen sink with a check valve to the sink plumbing. with a quick connect fitting fastened to the underside of your rig. Just a thought

What majority are you referring to? I've been on various RV forums for 16 years and your view is in the minority.
I have no problem with you deciding that you don't want to use it that way, it's your perogitive. But it's not true that the majority says not to.
We used the grill on our Roo 23SS for 10 years until we sold it. Never had any issues nor damage.

Not sure how legally your gonna get away from a dump somewhere... even gray water is not allowed to be dumped at a regulated campsite... now if you are just rinsing your hands off with clear water with bio-degradable soap, then I suppose disposal of a bucket of water somewhere not real near the campsite would pass, but you don't need a sink to accomplish that...

however, if your washing dishes, bathing the baby, or cleaning fish, that gray waste water needs to go to the dump station...

maybe you need something like this portable tank that you can pull to the dump station and then store on the rack on the way home

I really like your set up! I agree an outdoor sink is a real necessity so I bought this table
With sink built in. I bought garden hose adapters to tie into my outdoor shower so I can hang my sprayer on the sink for dishes. I would have never thought to use the low point drains! Click image for larger version

I like that out door sink station. For the low point drains I just used shark bite Teeís and shut off valves. Work out great!
