Controlling the drainage stink is the challenge for sure. While there shouldn't be much drainage, there is always some,especially if you carry ice for cocktails. Depending on how big your 40'er is you might consider a shower sump box in the bilge to collect and discharge water. Hi-effiency furnaces have a consendate pump that sends the water to a floor drain or laundry tub drain. Lacking either, your choices are limited to a separate collection site below the drain level (sealed sump pan, 'colostomy bag') , T into a nearby drain (galley sink?), or plug the drain hole and remember to spounge it out regularly.
