Hi guys.
I hope that this answers your questions.

I originally got this at Camping World but I searched the website and can't find it. I found it here though.

http://www.rvpartscenter.com/Product...tselect&SID=19

It's red and comes in two pieces.
One piece fits the large hose and the other goes into the sewer hole at the campground.

Here is the cap with hose connector I use at the galley drain.
Make sure you put it on with the hose threads at the 6 o'clock position.

http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...connector/6383

Go to your hardware store and tell them you need a male to male connector for a water hose.
The red sewer connector and the the cap for the galley drain both have male connectors on them.
I also bought a yellow screw on cap to put on the red sewer connector when I need to plug the hole.

I keep both gray valves open all the time (at the camp site).
The last day we are there I close the grey for the shower so that I have some soapy water to rinse the big sewer hose out with after I dump the black tank.

I took the 25' grey water hose and divided it into two pieces.
I usually need about 10' to reach the red connector from the rear galley tank.

I hope all of this makes sense.
I attached a better drawing.
Maybe that will make it clearer.

My only reasoning was too keep from crawling under the slide out to dump the galley tank.

We also use the shower alot and it's doens't take long to fill up the grey tank.

It just sems to make sense to me.

I would say though that if you have the habit of rinsing alot of food into your galley tank this system may cause a build up of food particles in the tank.

We have been pretty good about using the little strainers that came with the sink and so far we have not had any odor problems so we must be doing ok.

We finally decided to connect the front sewer with the galley sewer using PVC and using a T fitting now have just one connection. Now the back bathroom still has it's own sewer so we will still have to dump that one seperate., My father in law is a plumber so he figured this out for us,, will find out this weekend how this system works .

Although I only have one drain connection I bought one of those red 2-piece guys. Mine isn't open through the 3/4" connector though. I suppose you would have to drill that out to use it. I suppose that you would also need a cap to cover it in case you didn't have the garden hose connected to it.

See, pictures ain't hard. How difficult is it to connect the hose? Looks pretty close to the tire.
