Galley Drain, garden or 3 in hose?

Our new Rockwood 8314SS has the usual black and grey tanks plus one for the kitchen sink. There is a separate 3 in drain for that under the trailer. Do I need to use a 3in hose or can I use an adapter and use a garden hose? I can screw that into the end of my regular sewer elbow which has a garden hose fitting on the back of it. Or should I use a 3 in with some type of y connector going into the sewer ?

Most people just dump the one outlet and move the 3 inch hose to the second outlet when needed.

I only dump my kitchen tank when needed, which is not very often. I carry two separate sewer hoses, one 10' and one 20'. I keep the one needed on the main tanks attached and use the other one as needed to dump the galley tank. Depending on the location of the sewer in the campground, it takes either the 10' or 20' hose.

I have the same model but it is an 2006. Most of the time I use one hose and switch them out, I do have one extra hose and a tee if I want to hook them up together.

3 inch drain quicker, but either works. it depends the frequency of dumping, if very often, a tee with an alternate hose to galley is nice, if once a trip, move your other hose when needed.

i switch mine also when i dump at a dump station i pull up so the dump hole is in between both valves so your hose should be able to reach without moving your camper
