Yes, needs to be reply, not quick reply. The bread was good, thanks - itís been an enjoyable hobby while weíve been stuck at home.
I can see the problem now, the elbow on the end of the pipe doesnít leave much material for anything rigid to grip on to. A couple of thoughts (though Iím not sure any of them count as innovative):
1. Use an oversize domestic waste outlet pipe that the outlet can fall into - a couple of 90degree bends would give height flexibility. Affix the pipe (while stationary) using a piece of wire, maybe looped round the tap.
2. Is that a twist off connector that holds the 90degree bend on to the tap? If it is, can it be removed and replaced with a similar connector attached to a piece of hose when using the waste catcher?
3. Use a bucket to catch the waste water.
4. Use a funnel to guide the water into your portable water unit (Iím assuming we are talking about an Aquaroll or similar type of device.
Iíve some experience of using 1. above, though for a slightly different reason. It sounds a bit Heath Robinson (because it is!), but it worked for me on our previous motorhome to drain the waste tank where I wasnít quite over the drain.
Hopefully others will have other, more innovative, suggestions.
If only I could think of an original, witty signature . . . this is where it would be . . .
