Seeking: Original style hatch for sink drain 1977 Trillium

I've replaced one hatch on my 1977 Trillium so far. I believe they are colonial white in color (looks almost yellow).

Anyway, the one I cannot seem to find is a replacement for the gray water (from the sink) drain. These hatches have a door on them, are square.

Does anyone know where to find one?

Thinking about modifying a cable hatch if I can't find a water drain version.

I located an online retailer that sells this in the midwest a couple of months ago after someone on this forum posted the same question that you just posted. I will try to track it down.

Well Bill I found the post (July 7, 2018) discussing product I found at Tyree Parts and Hardware in Missouri. Its not a drain port, its a fresh water port. I was never able to locate a new square drain port. You could just buy a new square fresh water port or cable hatch and adapt it for use as the gray water drain. Here's a pic of my gray water drain. The door fell off long ago. More recently I replaced the white drain insert that you see here.

I was able to replace all the outlets on two Trilliums by dropping into every trailer store I ran across on our travels and seeing if they had any old stock. I found one here and one there by this method - mind you its taken several years. They are usually quite willing to get rid of these old fittings that have been in their shelves for decades at discount prices.
