Tote Tank Hose questions?

I bought the tote-n-stor 11 gallon tank. It did not come with dump hose.
I made up my own from a spare hose I had in the garage.
Once I got to a CG and was going to use it I realized maybe I didn't
make the correct hose---

The hose I made up has female ends on both ends.
This allows me to hook the portable tank to the RV dump valve.
That part is fine.
What happens when I haul it to the dump station??
Now I have a hose with female on both ends but need one with a
male on one end so I can attach it to my dump elbow.

I know I can use my 10' RV dump hose to dump the little tank but it's
way longer than I need to dump that little tank. Is there a gender changer fitting that would let me use a dump elbow with my short double female ended hose?

How do you guys do the deed with your portable dump tanks??

Great answer but $16 for a piece of plastic that will fit in your hand???

I need one but will google some more B 4 I hit the "buy" button.

Still wondering what you folks use to dump your porta tanks?

Didn't say it was a great price, just that they exist. Amazon has it for $14.00

I have the female that hooks onto the drain valve on my rv and a male 90 on the other end. It plugs into the goose perfectly, and it fits nicely at the dump station.

I just use the long hose. More than what you need but easy and you already have it.

Take a look at the Blue Line dump hose system. The necessary ends slip on the hoses,dont leak and come with the necessary adapters to connect where you need. Had mine for years and they work and hold up
