How do I get my grey water into my new grey water tank?

I bought a new grey water tank from Scamp as my old one was leaking after several fixes. I love the new outlet for the waste valve but don't know how to get my grey water into it! I looked at Lowe’s and a local RV place and I can't find the type of barbed fitting that is on the old tank. Is there a more modern solution I should be using? It looks like the old fitting is riveted on and then caulked prodigiously. Was that really the solution? Has anyone done this and have some pointers? Thanks.

That looks to be just regular abs. You can glue most 1 1/4” fittings to it that are available at most hardware stores to create an adapter to your existing plumbing. Mine worked out in a great way that I simply tied a p-trap from my sink straight into the grey water tank with just a piece of 1 1/4” ID tubing and some hose clamps. I like the rubber tubing since it allows some movement while towing the trailer on bumpy roads.

This is what the Scamp site says:
"This 21 gallon Grey Water Holding Tank will include the 3″ drain assembly, barbed fittings, & tank straps for mounting. This comes as a blank tank so the holes are NOT pre-cut."
They did not send you the other parts?

You saved me! I called and they sent me the missing parts so thank you!

So, there are more parts than I expected. Where do all of these extra right-angle pieces go? Any pictures of what the new Scamps have to know what I am doing here?

I have come to believe that no two Scamps are alike, that's why they are not cemented together.
I picked one up at the factory for a friend when I picked up my Scamp,
I do not recall the strapsl.
