We have the drain hose for the sink going into a bucket which we then dump appropriately several times over the stay. Several of the parks we were at this summer had sewer hookups and it got me to thinking.
Has anyone ever taken an RV sewer hose and fabricated a sealed garden hose on the trailer end so when the park had sewer one could eliminate the bucket greywater system and go right down the sewer connection like the big boys? I don't know enough yet about RV sewer setups to know if I'm goofy on this one or it might be a cool mod?

Why not just have hose going to sewer.

Odor I imagine. My guess would be with the basics of plumbing it makes a sealed connection when you use an RV sewer setup. Anyone know?

I have a rubber plug which goes on sewer hose when hose is in sewer.It stops all odors.Could make one out of a piece of rubber.

Well I'll be, looks like someone makes something that would adapt to exactly what I'm thinking.

Grey Water Hose Adaptor

Unless I'm reading this wrong it would allow you to have a sewer setup for your garden hose for a real reasonable price.

I would imagine that in order to keep the sewer odor from infiltrating the trailer through the sink I would have to devise a "trap" like in a home sink for this to work correctly.

Why recreate the wheel, just change the plumbing to a P-trap style.

If the garden hose that is used lies on the ground, it will be uphill to the trailer and to the adapter. So any water in the hose will form a trap and stop any fumes from entering the sink. I have used this method many times and never had a problem.

My trailer doesn't have a gray tank, but is plumbed and has p-traps, so I use one like Tom has in his second link. Since I have a shower in my trailer, it makes it really, really nice not to have to worry about how full my blue tote is before I start.

Excellent. Thanks to all for the follow-up, advice and for the photos.
I think this will be very easy to do, and a very useful and inexpensive addition.
Gets me out of bucket dump duty quite a bit as well.
