DeWayne, a few questions. Can you cut the PBC shorter than 4"? Maybe only 3"? Seems the shorter extention means less weight on the pop-up connection. Also the female PVC connection I bought doesn't seem to want to screw on my wall connection? It says 3/4.

I meant to say PVC - not PBC.

Found out there are twotypes of 3/4" female connection. One is specially designed for garden hose use. This is the one you want.

It appears that you settled this but, if you haven't. Conductor has the easiest solution. I have an '03 Bayside. If the better half complains about a slow drain. I reach into the bottom cabinet give it a tug downward. No more problem.

I would also make sure your hose is always running downward even the drain hose in your pu.Any curve upward will create a trap.Also make sure your hose is out of the water in your grey water container.

I am absolutely delighted to announce that I have finally fixed my sink drain problem. I can now brush my teeth without having to plunge the sink afterward.
I had a sink vent arrangement under the popup using a hose t and two hoses, but the vent hose actually dipped down to get under the frame mem ber before going up. Water collected in this bend, keeping it from venting the drain properly. I added a short hose under the trailer to ensure that the vent hose only sloped downward; there was no place for a water plug to block it. This works great, and my slow drain problem is gone- the trick is to get a vent in the line as close to where the drain leaves the popup as possible. Make sure the vent hose never dips down, though...
