    Hi guys
    Have tried searching for a thread on this but to no avail....we want to make an adapter so we can drain our grey waste if we happen to be on a fully serviced pitch as this weekend we found hot water stopped working if waste level got too high....any tips on doing this greatly appreciated

    I feel you will struggle to get an answer as most vans have different methods and types of discharge tails on them. Simple answer is get a pipe that extends onto your discharge pipe that you can join without leaking, and of course long enough to reach any drain no matter which corner of your van it is sited.

    If you have a 3" pipe with the external nipple hook things, then I've recently bought an adaptor that allows a 1" flexible pipe to be fitted.

    Let me know and I'll direct you to the seller.

    If you're looking to make a grey tank with a central drain accessible for draining from the side This Kit may be what you need.
