One is probably your Gray water (Shower, sink) and the other your black water (Toilet)

We got a Camco Rhinoflex with a "Y" connector from Amazon - works great! When you are ready to dump, you dump the black water and then flush the sewer out with the water from the grey tank.
Amazon.com: Camco 39812 RhinoFLEX Wye: Automotive

(BTW, NEVER leave the black water valve open when you are hooked to a sewer - it WILL cause problems! Just "Dump" your black tank when it gets above 1/2 full or so)

I have two on my Sabre and bought an "Y", and have 4 - 10' sections of sewer hose. I've been at many full hook up sites, but have yet to use the Y, as it's not too much work to switch locations with the same hose if needed.

Have the same setup 1 black and 1 gray together (toilet and shower) and 1 gray for kitchen sink . Same as the others have said 2 sections of hose a Y then another section of hose to the dump pipe. Not a big issue just more hose than most have to carry. Kitchen sink won't use much water by itself, tank would probably take a full week to fill.

Deal killer for our next RV.
1. Two sewer connections
The bath and a half is nice BUT NOT worth the hassle of the dreaded Y connection, I don’t use it unless we’re going to be there for more than a week!

2. hhhmmm at this time I can’t think of a #2.

jb says what Y connection hhmm maybe I need a new jb...smack...OUCH, sorry dear

I just hard plumbed the rear to the front, added a slide valve and use one hose to dump all 3 tanks. No fuss and don't have to carry extra Y's hoses, altho I do carry 4 hoses (some folks(FT Turbs) found out at the Goshen rally their hoses were too short)

Thanks for the replies...didn't know their were y connections..that's good to know..I think I'll at least start out with the one connection(the toilet and shower) and just switch connections to drain the other gray tank(kitchen) since from what was said it takes longer to fill the galley tank

I'm surprised to read that people think the "Y" is too much work. I'm much too lazy to move hoses. I set everything up once with hoses and the "Y" and then I don't have to futz with anything after that. If we're camping for just a weekend, I may forego the "Y" and just move the sewer hose, but even then- I usually just plug it in because it's just an extra fitting and extra hose.

Being an older person, I don't like crawling around on my knees under the slide to pull the slide open. Much easier to just to spend a couple of hrs and about $25 and hard plumb the rear tank to the front. Permanent fix to a dumb design that FR should take into consideration.
