Hi everyone, I have just bought a 1990 kontiki swift 640, I am struggling to find the waste water drain. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Have you been on your knees and looked underneath.
Swift weren't very user friendly back then.
My first Kontiki 640 was 1999 and that was an arm stretch to reach.
Easy enough to extend to the side skirt.

I have found a hose pipe connected to the black water tank underneath, it has an open end but can't see a tap

That looks like someone has bodged adapted it to drain directly into a water tote rather than store it in the tank.
You could fit a ball valve to the end of the hose and empty in the usual way.

Oh, just for information.... its the GREY water tank.
Black tank in this case is your toilet cassette.

No.
The sink, the basin, and the shower will all drain into the same (grey water) tank. Usually this will have a pipe leaving it and going to one of the sides of the vehicle, and some form of valve to operate to allow you to control draining it. I’ve never seen on drained via a hose. Normally they are a much larger pipe, or hose.

Is the hose the only pipe that you can see leaving the tank at a low level?

On mine the rather pathetic clip let the tap drag on the road, thus arriving with no tap. Just put a ball valve on the end. Drainage is slow because the pipe is really too narrow bore.

Yes it's the only pipe I can see, I will disconnect it to see what happens and stand well back! Thanks for your help
