Sewer hose question

I have 2 dump ports. One in the front that has the black and front gray tank, and one in the rear that has the kitchen and outdoor sink. I had to dump the rear one mid trip last outing and that sucked. Having to pull the hose off the front then attaching the rear to dump. So in the interest of me being lazy and wanting everything nice and neat what's y'alls thoughts on running ABS from the back tank up to the front dump port. I'm trying to not have to do the whole Y connector into sewer hose from both tanks but if that's my only option i will

There is no problem doing that if you have the room and can have a little fall so the water doesn't just sit in the new section. A lot of folks have replumbed there waist systems. And yes the Wye will work but it's a PITA.

My brother had one with the two ports far apart.

His solution was to put a cap on the rear port (galley/outdoor sink) that had a garden hose connection and also an elbow for the in-ground sewer connection with the same.

He simply attached the large sewer hose to the front dump port and an old garden hose to the rear (galley) port and both went to the in-ground sewer connection.

Be mindful of your ground clearance of the new pipe.

I would think an inch of drop per 5'-10' would have it running dry.

It won't be any lower then the current drain pipe. Im going to have to pull the underbelly and investigate. I have to deal with going over the axels so it all might be a mute point anyway.

I don't know?
I could spend some time Googling it but it will need to be later as I'm into some other things right now.
