Sewage Removal

We recently purchased a new fifth wheel, it has three sewage outlets. Are there any gadgets on the market whereby the ports can go into one solid pipe all three feeding into it.

It's possible to tie together grey water tanks...wouldn't recommend it if you're thinking of tying together two black tanks.

You can purchase a "Y" that you can run the two hoses to then to the sewer opening of the CG. There are many different types. Check out camping world or you local RV dealer.

the black tanks you shouldn't leave open when camping . they should only be dumped when full . and the grey water should be dumped after the black to flush down black waste still left in pipe. so I see no reason to do what your thinking . jmo

The reason I ask is when emptying tanks it is cumbersome and awkward with the slinky style piping!

When you empty your waste tanks are you using a rigid pipe or the slinky style pipe

Heres the problem I see with what you are suggesting now that I see what you mean.
unless you are at a seasonal site not all "on site" dumps are the same distance from parking pad so you may be perfect on one and 3 foot short on another .
and you still have to store/haul your rigid tube around .
adding a slinky hose to either end to make up difference just defeats the purpose !

am I correct on what your thinking ?

Actually, I am more confused now.

We talking about a seasonal permanently plumbed camper or one that gets towed to different campgrounds.

If you are mobile, I don't see how you are going to get away from the slinky type. The Rhino's I just got are the best I have used. Semi Rigid yet collapse and store easily.

If it were me, I would hard plumb the 2 galley tanks into the black tank with an additional slide valve next to the black tank valve and use one slinky hose.

your not confused herk I just merely suggested that if it was a seasonal unit that a solid pipe could be used in the way he wants .

but I assume that its not so I am not sure if it will work the way the op thinks
