You should be able to get all the parts you need at any RV shop.

Looks like the old system was Gray water directly to the ground and Black water behind the dump valve.

I would plumb then both in with separate dump valves to be a bit more up to date.

gotta replumb anyway, might want to use velterra valves.cheaper, get at any rv shop,last as long or longer and are not as morphidite as the fgrentec which can be hard to even get an adapter for the hose unless you have access to a large rv supply.
plumbed with no valve on grey was common in the old days as you could run grey onto the ground,try that today and like as not somebody is likely to demand you be hung ! while open is the optimum time to plumb in as big a grey tank as will go. i have set them in line in closet next to kitch. got a 5 gallon in there , allows for hand and dishes to be washed without having to put a portable tnk on it. the other option is to carry a blue tnk (portable with wheels ) everywhere you go and haul grey waste to dump statioin by hand.

Cynthia,

Is it in your plans to add a gray tank to your rig?

If so, maybe this is your trailer's way of reminding you to do it before closing in the floor...

If all you want to do is hang the piece back up like it was originally, you can get a 1 1/2" ABS or PVC connector, and glue it back in place with PVC or ABS cement.
That said, there should be room between the black tank and the right (curbside) frame rail to install a small grey tank and dump valve. Our trailer has a whopping 10 gallon tank there, and there really is room for a bigger one.

I have been planning to add a gray tank closer to the kitchen near axles. More centered . Is your 5 gallon stored in the closet on below floor? NEVER will I carry a blue tote. Too much of a hassle. Im SO VERY OVER the replacement of the rotted floor and black tank issue. The BEATING continues....So close, then SNAP! I know this was really a God send that it broke now HOWEVER.....the words that left my lips at that exact moment were less than angellic . There is a Camping world near me and I plan to go over next week for the part. Thanks for your valuable help. Cynthia

Ovr63,
Do you have photos of your set up? I would like as big of a gray tank as my unit will hold. Girls like things clean. Thank You, Cynthia

5 gallon in the overlander i did last year sit on floor of cabinet behind kitch, vent and kitch drain run right through there so was easy. gate valve could ga there as well.
in the ex excella i built i put both tanks and potable and all plumbing above floor. makes it easier to protect in winter which is when i go.

Ok I picked up the velterra valve and stick of 3" pvc and a 3" coupling today. Tomorrow, God willing and the creeks dont rise I will be installing the valve and securing the floor. Between the crazy Texas snow, silly rain and the trek to camping world the simple replacement has ALMOST gotten the best of this girl. So heres the "PLAN". Take the pvc 3" stick cut it down to size, slip on the coupling and attach the new velterra valve all with pvc cement. The new velterra valve has 3 - 1/8 little bumps that stick up. Im going to cut them off and sand down to the 3" pipe size. The question for you wise ones...Any problems or suggestions for this repair? Oh, any reason I cant have the valve to end inside the rear bumper compartment? THANKS!!
