Ideas needed

I Have a 2012 v-lite 30wfkss and the thing I really wish to be diffrent is the fact of having to crawl under the front slide out to drain the galley tank. Seems like really poor design to me. I'm wondering if I could replumb this farther back to where the black and grey tanks drain. It just makes sense to me to have the drain valves all in one place. Has anyone else considered this to be an issue? I would appreciate any ideas or pics on this modification. Thanks

I recently found out that my new TT [that i don't have yet] has the same set up and I was wondering the same thing. I was thinking about getting a sewer cap with a garden hose fitting and running a piece of hose with a shut off on the end of it so i can leave the dump valve open so I don't have to climb under the tt all the time.And since the black and grey dosn't need to be dumped every day just remove the garden hose and dump the other tanks. Sounds like it will work? if any body else has tried this or has any other suggestions that would make this process a lot easier let me know thanks. OH i forgot that they sell a fitting for end of the garden hose that connects it to the sewer also gonna get one of those.

I have the fitting on my galley tank that allows me to connect a garden hose. I run this to the sewer connection if I have full hookups.I have a valve at the end of the hose that allows me to dump galley tank at any time without crawling under a slide.

I have the same issue.
I purchased a sewer cap that accepts a water hose.
The end of my sewer hose accepts the other end of the water hose. (see attachment)
I purchased a grey water hose that I only use for this purpose.
I make all of the connections and open the galley valve before I open the slideout.
I have been doing this for at least three years and it works great.

You can plumb the rear tank to the front discharge.

Thanks Bill, I was looking for a fitting like that. I was also looking to see if there's was one that came off the main dump valve.this looks like it will do the job nicely.ordering one of these
