How long is the vent hose on Scamp grey water tank?

Would anyone with a Scamp with a grey water tank be willing to measure how long the grey water vent/overflow hose inside the rear hatch is?

I'm replacing old plumping to my trailers fresh water tank area and noticed in that area what I assume is the vent/over flow hose for the grey water tank - the hose that comes up into the trailer from the grey water tank and back down through the floor to the underside of the trailer - has broken off but it looks like it may have happened once before and fixed by PO. I am going to replace it but wonder how long the the hose was originally (the portion one can see inside the trailer) and how high the rise from the floor needs to be before it returns down to the outside?

Thanks!

Carol,

Mine rises about 8 inches so there is about 16inches inside the trailer and I can see about 2 inches under the trailer.

Don't know how much is needed to go through the floor and attach to the grey water tank, though.

Thanks Joy & Otto - there is a solid connection piece that comes up from the tank for attaching the hose to so not a problem. Good to know I assumed there need to be a pretty good rise on it so as to prevent any overflow from coming out of it if traveling with a full grey tank.
