Drain outlet in the interior.

I'm not sure what this is at all but anyways. I'm new here so I hope I posted this in the right forum.

Now what I came here for. I have a Trillium 4500 (15') and it has a drain outlet attached to the side of the counter. I discovered it when my dinette seats were soaked after washing dishes.

I have attached an image.

Thanks

Good question. Not being a Trillium owner, I really don't know why anyone would install a discharge garden hose fitting inside the trailer. Never seen this before. Are you sure it even is a drain?

Does your Trillium have a grey water tank? Our 13’ Scamp had the sink drain to the outside where one would place a container to catch the water. Perhaps if yours does not have a grey water tank, someone designed the drain to have a hose attache to this and divert the waste water into a jug under the dinette.

that certainly looks like a place you're supposed to connect a hose to a grey tank.

on our old Starcraft tent trailer, I used a couple empty-and-cleaned gallon detergent bottles as grey tanks. our Casita, and our new Escape, have grey tanks that the sinks and showers drain into. The Casita 16's grey tank was 13 G, which we filled up way too fast. the Escape 21 has a 28 G grey tank, which is good for a week+ of no hookups.

Drain

We also had the grey water drain on the exterior of our Venture fold down camper. I had a couple instances where a raccoon or other nocturnal animal tipped the bucket over. So I’m thinking that if this was not a factory install perhaps the previous owner did dishes, washed vegetables etc in the sink and immediately caught the water inside the camper to dump remotely and get it away from the camper. Just a guess.

This is a water inlet, not outlet. Though who knows what they were thinking. I put one of each on the outside of my daughters Trillium 1300.

I guess to know for sure, you'll need to look inside the cabinets and see how it's plumbed. I can see how it would leak under either scenario if that cap is not sealed.

My Trillium doesn't have this

My Trillium 4500 doesn't have this interior drain. Mine is on the outside of the Trilly and I connect it to a grey water tank. Perhaps your Trillium had a toilet/bathroom sink up front at one time. That was a configuration that was available and perhaps it was part of that setup? I would just put a cap on the end of it, and reroute it to the outside of the trillium from the sink. Just my thoughts. Good luck

I have owned a 78 1300 Trillium and currently own a 1980 4500 Trillium with front bathroom, lavatory in the right front corner of factory molded in fiberglass and a toilet in the left front corner. The toilet is a like a portapotty but it is mounted to the floor and uses a standard rv black water dump valve under the left front corner. The toilet has about a 7 or 8 gallon black tank that is the base of the toilet.

The lavatory and kitchen sink connect below the sink and a drain is mounted on the left outside just behind the refrigerator grill on the outside with a male hose end connector, you are to use short hose and a bucket to catch the grey waste water and dispose of it. There is no grey water tank in them. The 1300 has the same grey water drain on the outside and no grey water tank. I am the second owner of the 4500 and the first owner never made any modifications to the trailer at all. As a mater of fact, it looked like it had only been used a few times as there was no damage or scrapes on anything. Only a couple of the floor tiles were loose from being in the California desert and the adhesive let loose. The fresh water tank is wedge shaped and is mounted under a piece of 3/4 inch plywood under the dining table center section that also is the floor with a piano hinge and door on the front of it that lifts up to check the water level and to access the drain and fresh water pump.

Currently have a 2004 fiberglass class a motorhome that we travel in now. The 4500 has a high end 305 watt solar system and is used for way outback boondocking, 3500 lb torsion axle and is raised 2 1/2 inches to help with ground clearance and is towed with a 2002 S-10 crew cab 4x4.
