What connector will fit the grey waste outlet?

We often stay on fully serviced sites and it would be useful to attach a hose to the vehicle to have "mains drainage".
Has anybody else achieved this and if so how?

Used a 1.5"BSP male to .5" hose connector from our local aquatics centre. Does restrict the flow to a trickle but if you're 'plumbed in' so what.

If parked not too far from the drain point you can use an old bicycle inner tube like we do.

Is it better to beg forgiveness than to ask for permission?

I bought a length of corrugated hose slightly bigger than the hose outlet and shove it on over it. It works for me.

As the waste pipe is internally threaded on my Bolero, I obtained a 1" outside threaded adapter from the local plumbers merchants and pushed on an old washing machine outlet pipe. Jubilee clip to keep it in place and I can now screw on the flexible drain pipe to reach wherever I have to.

Make sure it's empty though when you take it off.........

I don't have a hobby and i don't know the size/style of your outlet, but if you scroll down to the bottom of the page linked to below; you'll see pictures etc of my solution to the same issue.

As others have said depends on the van my old c I had a guillotine valve under the centre of the van and a 11/2 " waste fitting wedged in nicely saved manouvering to get over the drain , one of the first adaptions I did on the Bessie was to alter the waste a 3/4" overflow adapter screwed in to the valve and I can either turn this down into a container or add a length of large bore hose to run to a drain
