Another yes. My FW and BF are both on the outside of my trailer, so they allow the hose to hang straight down. Also, I use a 4 way brass splitter at the hydrant. I've been in a couple of places where I needed to share water with other campers. 4 way made that easy.

Another Yes. Wally World is cheapest for the brass Camco 90... $3.98. They also make a 45 elbow as well.

I use it on both. I have a piece of black gorilla tape on the black tank rinse elbow.

Don't have to buy the Camco, Home Despot has the 90 degree brass elbows, plus a good selection of "Y"s with shut offs, and even 45 degree elbows. I bought all brass items. Connecting to the source first, I put on a Y, then the 45 so the next item, inline water filter, hangs straight down. Then the FW hose, 90 degree into the TT.
Short answer to original question: YES, from the start!

The CG we are at told us the state inspector no longer allows 'Y's at the water hookup. They added an additional water spicket at each site. Maybe that's why our site fee went up an an extra $250 for next season. They had to pay for a 'T', 3" of pipe, faucet and back-flow preventer for each site.

Yup here too as well as quick connect adaptor on all.

Definitely do. Also include a pressure regulator. Just don't over tighten on the city water inlet. A wye is also very helpful when you connect it at the city water line. Get one with shutoffs on it so you can control them separately from the city water valve.
