Very interesting. I wonder if Casita made a shower without a sink installed? I have the closet totally torn out and there is no vent going up. That is what was surprising to me and why I think I had massive water invasion onto the OSB floor. The drain on mine went right out and exited to a garden hose male connector on the side of the egg. So in essence my grey tank was about a two foot section of 1/2 pipe and that was it. I would have seen evidence of sink rivets had there been one. Now I have a better idea of how to proceed.
thanks

I had a Hepvo in our Casita. It always worked perfectly, even though we froze it at least once. The morning it was frozen, the shower water backed up for just a couple minutes, then it thawed the valve and all was good. Surprisingly, mounting the valve in a horizontal position is okay per the factory literature and it worked just fine.

Nice modification Arlon. I may be wrong on this, but I think you need to rotate the HepVO 180 so that the bottom is smooth (hump on top). This will allow full evacuation of waste water. As shown in your picture, you have a shallow water "trap".

Hadn't noticed that. Thanks, easy fix.
