Plumbing black tank flushes together

On my 5th wheel I have 2 black tank flushes. I am wanting to plumb them together into a Wye Connector. My thoughts are that I can hook up the hose one time and then just turn on the valve going to whichever tank I want to flush.

Has anyone done this and if so what did you use. I was thinking about just using pieces of a garden hose connected to a Metal Wye connecter.

Thoughts and pictures please.

I think I'd make two 1' sections of hose to go from the black tank flush to a wye like this:

Then your hose could run from the single end of that to the water source (where I'd have another of the same wye).

Why the second Wye? All you should be hooking up to the spigot is your black/gray water flush hose

I hook up my fresh water to the campsite spigot and connect it to my city water inlet. I have a wye off of the spigot to feed my freshwater and black water flush hose.
