    Hello campers I’m finally back in the camping game. I have a 02 Coleman Niagara elite. And this is the first time I’ve had restroom/shower. Couple of things. At first I wasn’t getting hot water. I read through a few threads about the check valve. So I went all over with that. So finally I found that the line was clogged with calcium chunks. So after sucking and blowing the line out a couple times I finally got it clear and now I have good water pressure. So on to the sink and shower. My question is since I don’t have a grey water holding tank. How should I drain the water when showering or using the sink. Is there some sort or exterior holding take that I should get to hook up?

    We have this one. It just hooks to the trailer hitch so it can be towed to the dump station.

    So does it t off of the sink/shower to collect the water. Wife already wants to go out but I have to figure something for the sink/shower to drain into.

    If your niagra does not have the gray water tanks onboard then there should be a drain on the outside the camper if the sticker is still there it may even have the word drain. I managed to find some PvC pipes that fit over the drain on the camper and had it drain into my external gray water tote.(mine is very similar to Orchid's except I can't tow mine). Some popups needed two totes, one for the sink and another for the shower. I don't know if your niagra is the same way.

    Yes it has 2 drains. I was thinking of doing something like this.

    It doesn't come with a built in T, but some people have made their own. We just use the big tote on the shower and the smaller container, like shown in the picture you posted, at the sink.

    That will work! I'm sure any container will as long as when full you can lift it! Some just use a garden hose connected with adaptor to the drain. The larger hose will help so it dosent drain slow.

    Don't forget how much water weighs when it comes to dumping whatever you use for a tank. I picked up one
    of the 6 gal Water Totes from WalMart because it was thinner so easier for me to fit places. The drawback was
    that I found I had to dump it quite frequently and we didn't have an inside shower.
