Sewer hose thread to bayonet adapter

Hey all, new here and we took our Roo out for the first real outing. Trip was 5 days with no sewer connection, but I brought a water tote for the gray water.
Here's the dilemma I want to avoid for future trips but am unable to find a off the shelf solution.
Camper was backed in to an inclined spot which put the tank release gate about 6" off the ground once camper was leveled out. In order for the the waste tote to be down hill from this point, i had to use my 15' RhinoFlex + a 10' extension to get gravity to do the work. The problem I had was that the elbow on the Rhinoflex is the 4-n-1 with threads. The barker tote has the bayonet lug fitting.
What, if any, adapter can I use to make this connection? Basically, for this trip, i used the kids to put their foot on the elbow to hold in tote while grey tank was being emptied, but this is not ideal.

As of right now, i'm thinking to purchase another 4-n-1 thread adapter and cut and glue to bayonet fitting, but was wondering if someone else has already invented this wheel.

Thanks, but that would remove the elbow. I want to be able to use the elbow at the waste tote.

Can you post a picture of the different ends? I'm having a hard time seeing it in my head.

Probably not the best pics, but should help.
The elbow has 4 flanges to lock into threaded adapter.
tote tank is standard bayonet connection.

Can you use a regular 1/2 or 5/8 hose with the 4" caps that have the hose fitting on them? I have done this & it works well.

What Papa and youroo suggests works best in my view.

It takes a bit longer to empty the grey tank, but more effective given the height of the valves on the Roo.

You are welcome mitchlandry. Another nice thing about doing it this way is that it doesn't fill your tote tank too fast helping to avoid overfilling.
