Nice, really bright but makes it easy to see, good job, considering putting lights in my cabinets and removing Led Puck Light

I got tired of crawling under my Work & Play to uncap the drain lines when I needed or wanted to drain.
So, for just a few $$ & about an hour or less I took a thick (3/16) piece of aluminum & used for a mount bracket.
Took a trip to Lowes and bought 2 commode/sink supply lines (mine are only 12 in.) & 2 shutoff valves for same & mounted. I did have to cut off one 'ear' on each knob & it works just fine. I used some big,thick washers also.
(yes, one is a little crooked)

What do you need/use a wye for ?

Same here- I leave both of my clear 45 degree elbows permanently attached.

The wye is because I have 2 sewer connections (for the 1/2-bath in the rear and outdoor kitchen sink) on the camper and haven't plumbed them together. I run the sewer hoses to the wye and then the wye to my 90-degree sewer elbow.

I did that but I found that when you dump one tank the water also goes into the other hose. Does your wye prevent that somehow?

Nope- you're right that it does go into the other hose a bit. It hasn't been an issue for me as I typically dump all tanks at once.

I guess you could add a blade/"end of line" valve that you put onto each side of the wye. That would let you control the flow.

My black tank usually fills up faster than my galley tank so it needs to be dumped more often.

I bought one of those twist on blade valves because my galley tank outlet is under the LR slide and I open the valve on the trailer and use the twist on at the wye to dump the galley tank when it needs it and I could just add another twist on valve at the wye but I'm trying to simplify set up and break down and thought you might have found something else.

So you have two full sewer hose sets and connect them together at the dump end ?

So far I've just been disconnecting from one hookup and moving to another.

Our 5er has 3 connections: -
One for the front bathroom (black and gray tanks/valves on one connection)
One for the kitchen gray tank
One for the rear bathroom (one tank/valve/connection for toilet and basin).

I have 2 connections, one at bath, black and gray together and one at kitchen, gray only.

I either have to put the LR slide in or crawl under to hook up and dump the kitchen tank so this was just more convenient.

Drains fine....just got around to testing.....now have 3 different ways of drain'n galley tank. The only reason I did what I did was to keep from crawl'n under slide....If a person can get to their valves easy, and use a Y, and have a place to store all of it, then I'd stay with that....just takes more stuff.

If you want to simplify setup and breakdown, could you just leave the blade valves always attached to the wye? Just disconnect the hoses and let it be like that for storage between trips.

Yes, I carry four 10' sections of hose (with those bayonet/peg fittings on the ends).

I have 2 sewer connections. Yours is the first that I have heard with 3. I think I would see about plumbing your kitchen outlet into one of the other ones.

We have been setting up for 2 weeks and I'm much too lazy to move the hose. It doesn't help that my rear connector is a pita to get to- deep under one of the slides. It's a hassle to even dump the tank much less to hookup the sewer hoses. I like to do it before we deploy slides.
