    This is a new to me 1994 Flagstaff Cobra pop up. Manual I found online doesn't say what these are for... can you help? When we hook the hose to the one on the left everything floods...
    Thank you again!

    if That is where your sink is located, I’m making a guess it’s the city water and gray water outlet. Although I’ve never seen them on the back of the camper before. Normally manufacturers locate them on the side of the camper directly behind the sink.

    No, this is nowhere near the sink. That is on the side of the camper. Brian took the hose out of it, but it leaked under and inside the camper as well when he turned it on.

    Can you see where it's connected on the inside of the camper?
    Looks like a gray water drain. Or it's your city water hook up and it's been disconnected or broken.

    We figured it out :) You are the best! The inlet on the left that the hose is connected to, goes to a water hook up that has no home, so we just won't use that any more and the one on the left is the grey water exit!! Ceiling done, water leak fixed. Just need to clean her up and patch the holes in the canvas and we are ready to hit the road!!!

    Glad you got it figured out...

    My POPUP is set up like this for capturing the sink gray water...

    I have two of those 7.5 gallon containers and when the first one fills up I switch to the second one and then haul off the first one... Most of the time I pour the gray water on a tree away from the camp site unless they have signs up not to do this...

    A lot of camp sites have a gray water disposal station... The ones in Cloudland Canyon in Georgia looks like this....

    Thank you so much! Pictures always help me, and what a great idea to drain into a jug and dump as it is filled!!

    Another thing that helps me out is one of those folding two wheeled carts... I can carry my gray water to the bath house to dump it and bring back fresh water in another container haha..

    Those 7.5 Gallon containers are pretty heavy haha...
