09' jayco baja sink drain

Hey there, so just took our pop up out for the first time. Bought a used 09' Baja and really like it except when i went to use the sink it didn't drain and i realized it wasn't hooked up to the gray tank like the shower not sure why they wouldn't connect the two. And since this is my first i thought i'd ask....so do most people drain into an external tank? and if so what's the best one to get iv'e seen the Smart tote. Another ? does filling up the F.water tank before you leave the house a good idea or bad, i was wondering if the weight is an issue. but i guess if you are dry camping you don't have a choice

I have an older Eagle (2000) and the sink drains to the outside. I was thinking they probably fixed that on newer units with the show - I've got a shower also. I'm planning on connecting the gray water tank and the sink to a Y connector and and draining them both into the septic at whatever campgrounds we're at. I found Amazon.com has a connector that fits the septic so a hose can be hooked up. The only issue I have is that the sink drains really, rally slow. but I think we can live with that so we don't have to buy an external tank.

Personally, I don't travel with any water in my fresh water tank. The first reason is that 30 gallons of water is pretty heavy and it reduces the amount of camping supplies I can carry. The second reason is that the weight can affect how your trailer handles when towing. The third reason is I'm not convinced that any of the tanks under my trailer are very well secured to the underside of the camper...looks like the use a thin sheet metal clip around the edge and some flimsy pipe strapping. I recommend travelling dry and fill up your fresh water tank after arriving at your destination. Of course if your boondocking you would want to fill up your tank as you leave civilization.
