I just bought my first truck camper, which a 2016 TL 625 SL.  The guy I bought it from was the 2nd owner, and claimed he only used it one time.  He said he bought from a guy that just stayed in it while his house was being built.  Long story short, neither of them used the stove, water, etc..  I fully believe this because there is no signs of use and the camper still has a new smell. 

 

My question is, where does water from the sink go?  I see a little drain tube coming out of the bottom of the camper near the front.  Does it just drain straight out?

You have a holding tank for the grey water which is the sink and shower water and you have a black tank for the poop water. Did the prior owner give you the owners manuals for the TC? If not you may want to try to contact the company and get a copy. Also watching some videos may help you out.

Thanks for the feedback.  The camper does not have gray or black water tanks.  The info I see simply says it drains outside.  However, I poured a little water in the sink and it's not draining out.  I looked to see if there is a valve that I need to open, but I'm not seeing anything.

Look for a plug outside of the camper on the same side as the sink, but be careful if camping in some camp grounds. Most will not allow to drain gray water onto the camp site.

Thanks!  This is what I needed.  I got a short piece of hose and a 5 gallon bucket.  I'll just drain it into the bucket, then dump it after the sun goes down!  It's only going to be water from brushing my teeth.  I use paper and plastic for eating and drinking so nothing to wash.
