steveo, once you get this issue fixed, suggest you visit the Hybrid/Expandable section here, since the 18th is a hybrid TT.
There's even a Surveyor sub-forum there, where you can discuss things with other Surveyor owners.

You really should incorporate them so you can flush the black out of the hose with grey water. Otherwise, you're going to be having a nasty problem down the line.

That Tee should work fine with a gray water valve and a black water valve. If you added a common valve after those two you can have added flexibility to transfer gray water to your black water tank. You'll find the gray water fill more rapidly than the black. With a common valve closed and more water in the gray tank than the black, you can open the gray valve then the black and gravity will transfer the gray water to the black. It is also a method for flushing the black tank after draining.

X2 on the Tee valve set up. That is all you need to do. I agree the unit was most likely a seasonal RV and it was simply dumped into a proper drain.

Missing parts

Maybe someone cut it to hook up to a permanent drain and kept the black water valve for periodic drainage. Definetly been modified by removing the drain valve for the gray for some reason.
