How to drain?

OK, this is a really dumb question I am working on my partially gutted AS,with bath in place. I had previously had the plumbing pex'd by a professional. I had all fixtures (toilet included) removed until I could paint the tub, sink, etc and install new floors around the toilet. I have never run water in the trailer nor used any of the water systems. I was cleaning the tub and sink today in preparation for painting, bringing in buckets of water. I probably put a couple of gallons of water in the tub and sink to clean it, and noticed it was not draining. I thought it would automatically drain into the black water tank. but it's just sitting there. Since it is clean water, is there any way to drain it into the yard? Am I supposed to open up some valve to get it to drain?
Help!

Do not ever let drain or gray water to go into the black tank. If you do, the stuff in the black tank, will get into the drain water lines, which creates a health problem.

What your describing says that you have the cap still on the drain outlet. That's the place where you hook on the sewer hose fitting.

When you remove that cap, the water in the drain lines, will come flying out.

Carefully remove that cap, so that you don't get soaked.
