Slide-out kitchen - where does wastewater go?

My wife and I went to look at a Class A ('00 Damon Challenger 330 FWIW) yesterday - we're still looking for a first RV. On our way there, I remarked to my wife that you could put everything on a slideout except the bathroom, then it occurred to me that this RV had the kitchen/galley on the slide, which is the first weve came across in the physical presence.

So wondering, how is the plumbing handled? Rubber/flexible hose for the fresh water to faucets, I can see but probably not ideal, and how about the grey water?

I did look under the slide and noticed there was a taped over hole in the slide approximately where the drain went (drain pipe went from sink to under the cabinet so I couldn't see it).

Just wondering how these things are plumbed? Never thought about it until < 24 hrs ago.

Mine is tied into the grey water plumbing just after the shower drain. I don't know how long the flex hose lasts mine is original, as is all the plumbing flex hoses.
It may be accessed by removing part of a kitchen cabinet and the access hatch for underneath the shower/tub.

Many RV's use a large flexible track, looks something like a bicycle chain, but plastic and larger. The utilities are strapped to the track and protected while they move in and out with the slide like a snake. On mine, it holds the drain hose, water lines, electrical and communication cable for the light switches.

Mine goes back to the bedroom and under the bed. It uses a spa/pool type hose and it moves in and out with the slide. I have watched the movement to make sure it is free to move with no obstructions.
