That is interesting. I was just thinking I would remove it and store it. But why? I think your right. Just keep it on there.

I take it you put a 3" termination cap on it.

Grey drain outlet setup

Exactly! There's a termination cap on there with a tether connected to it which attaches to the tether nub or whatever it's called :-)

I just set this up on my HW27 this weekend. I had to cut off the factory sewer hose storage but since it was to short for the sewer hose I use I did not care.

This will greatly speed up the draining of the grey tank. It used to take forever to drain the tank through the converter I was using. Thanks so much for sharing this idea.

I do not understand. Is your plumbing much different than the other HW models? The floor plans all show the toilet in the same spot and I figured the black and grey set ups are all the same.

Why did you have to cut the sewer hose storage tube? From what I see here all you need to do is build the adapter and screw it to the 1 1/2" grey water outlet. That is the beauty of it. No need to modify the existing pop up at all.

Or am I misunderstanding your comments? Sorry if I am.

Vin.

Hi Vin,

The pipe for the gray tank on my unit is located right beside the hose storage tube, almost touching it. When I went to attach the 3" to 1.5" reducer to the gray drain, it would not fit. The 3" width of the pvc piece required more space than I had without really pulling on the pipe and risking a break.

I could have probably removed the bracket that is holding the pipe in place and pulling it over some to get more clearance but I did not want to put much pressure on the plumbing and risk breaking it.

As a drain setup, it works great. I was using the sewer hose rinser adapter and it was really slow and would clog.

Maybe your pipe is not as close to the hose storage as mine and you will not have the issue. For the convenience of the drain, I would not think twice of cutting off that small hose storage.

I have one that I built using a fence post mounted on the bumper that provides a much better solution for a longer hose and all of the connectors.

Finally bought my items for this same set up Kinma. Like you my HD only carried the while. Oh well....just a bit of black paint is needed.

After feeling the parts, I am not going to keep it on the gray drain. It seems too heavy and I would not want to catch something on it and break something. It is easy enough to just screw on and off when needed.

Thanks everyone for the idea. It is going to be great to flush out the black hose after I dump the black.

Vin.

Yeah vin I remove mine every time too. You could put a support strap on it if you wanted to leave it in place. Think I'll be painting mine this week. Have to rough up the pvc and prim it first so the paint sticks n stays better.

Just used it today and still keep it on 24/7. It doesn't sag, nor protrude much more than the black gate. One less thing to store :-)

Hey Kinma13,
I also have a HW296 and I use two Anderson Levers. Works like a champ.
I did have to cut one of them down to fit between the tires.

To stay on subject, I choose to cut and rework the factory plumbing to
have a single connection dual waste valve setup. I had my first trip of the
season and the modified waste plumbing worked like a champ. On July 4th
we will stay in a site with sewer hookup and it will be even easier.

This is my new grey water dump set up. Picked up all necessary parts at general rv here in Michigan. Wanted to extend over to the black tank and have only one connection but have a few issues with that. First black drain is facing rearward more than id like, grey drain is lower than the black and my sewer hose tube is directly between the two.

I've been getting several questions about this installation and unfortunately the forum doesn't allow me to edit the original post that had incorrect part URLs.

The original receipt had errors for the part numbers and furthermore the Lowes web page is not reliable for finding these parts.

Please use this picure as a reference point for parts. I'm travelling right now and when I get back to Lowes, I'll look for the right part number on the shelf and post them. Hopefully they still have them!

Apologies in advance for any confusion.

Ok, there's a Lowes in the location where I'm visiting and checked their parts. They only had the white pvc and not the black ABS. These two items fit together perfectly.

1-1/2" cleanout - Item 23301
Shop Charlotte Pipe 1-1/2-in Dia PVC Cleanout Adapter Fitting at Lowes.com
1-1/2" to 3" coupler - Item 23319
Shop Charlotte Pipe 1-1/2-in x 3-in dia PVC Adapter Coupling Fitting at Lowes.com

When I get back to CO, will check my local Lowes for the ABS part numbers.

New to site, just completed drain cap from the 1 1/2 inch to 3 inch, cost around $9.00 and ten minutes of my time. This should work great, will find out next week on our first trip. Thanks for all the great ideals that are being shared on this site.
