    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:

    X 2 either would work if the CG ok's it, it is not really sewage but is gray water from dishes etc.

    x3 I haven't had the Aliner at a full-hookup site yet (have used them in the past when I had black/gray tanks on other campers), but since we have a night booked at a full-hookup site in Jan (only full-hookups were available) I added one of the above to my supplies, along with a longer dedicated gray water hose. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002P3KJME/

    I carry one of these in my trailer box but really don't use it too much. It is hard to keep pushed into the campground sewer cap for me.

    We mostly camp off-grid and I just run the hose down inside one of these AQUA-TAINER containers. When the first container gets full I switch the hose to the second one and then tote off the full one. Most places will allow you to pour the sink water around the base of tree somewhere away from your camping spot. We usually see a sign telling us this at the main entrance...Most off-grid places also have a primitive vault toilet installed as well somewhere close by.
