    I dont know if this question has been answered but I tried searching. My PUP has a sink drain connection for a regular garden hose. I usuall just drain it into a 5 gallon bucket but I will be camping with a full hook up in a couple of weeks. Has somebody mad a DIY adapter to go from a garden hose to sewer connector? What size is a sewer connection?

    The sewer connection is 3". Unless the campground calls for a sealed connection, why not just take the cap off the pipe in the ground and stick your garden hose in it?

    If they call for a sealed connection, just go to the hardware store and get a 3" cap. Then, drill a hole in it that you can stick your hose in.

    That is what I was thinking. It is a state park so, I'm not sure if it needs to be sealed. I am more worried about smell

    That adapter would not be allowed at one campground I frequent. They require a threaded fitting.

    If you jam it in good it won't smell. I've never been to a campground that has threaded fitting.

    Every campground I have been to has threaded fittings with a cap on it to control smell. I use an elbow like this:
