Damon Intruder Washer installation problem

We are trying to install a washer/dryer unit into our 2001 Damon Intruder. We have hit a snag in that there is no drain. Running a drain would normally not be a problem except the first tank to drain to is the blackwater tank, the grey water tank is behind it. The drain would also have to run up hill somewhat. Any suggestions?

I am new to this. Hope I have completed this correctly

If the 'runs uphill somewhat' isn't to far, you could mount the hose so it traps some water making a 'P' trap. This prevents odors from the black tank coming up through that hose. Then of course you'd have find a way to blow water out of it before putting it away every winter. Any chance you could provide some pictures?

Note that many will say to not do this at all or find a way to drain into the grey tank. But there are many older RVs where the bathroom sink drains into the black tank. Some I've heard of drain the bathtub into the black tank. But they have 'P' traps.

The real issue is how far uphill the water must run before spilling into the tank. You don't want 6' of a 1 & 1/2" pipe or hose under the floor filled with water while you're driving around.
