Waste Termination - No Holding Tank

My 2001 16' Casita Spirit has a a broken 1-1/2" pipe roadside under the frame. My fix is to saw a clean cut, add a coupling then a new 1-1/2 piece up to where the smashed pipe hanger is (I have a new hanger) then add a slip elbow, 1-1/2" nipple & the 1-1/2 fitting w/blk cap w/3/4" M garden hose thread which I got from the factory.
I want to have the last fitting w/hose thread at a right angle to the Casita frame, not parallel to the frame.
Am I on the right fix here? (this is not in the A-Z book)
Thanks,
Elaine

I think I know what you are trying to do. I would add a valve in the line so any trap/trapped water won't rush out when you take the cap off to connect the hose. I switched from PVC (white) to ABS (black) pipe at the slip fitting. I added a 1.5" rv slide valve and a 1.5" to 3" rv sewer fitting. Then used a 3" RV sewer cap with a hose fitting. That way you can either use a 3" sewer hose or 3/4" gray water hose to dump with.

Great idea about adding the valve. You folks are always so helpful. I'll work on trying to get some pictures. Think my neighbor can help me with the photos-not my thing.
Thanks much.
Elaine

Valve on order

Love that Amazon prime - should get the part by Friday. We are going to Santa Marie for rodeo hauling the parade car - Drat more lost trailer work time but the weekend should be fun.
Thanks again,
Elaine
