Draining black and gray water together

I have a 2015 HW296 pop up and wondering if anyone knows of an adaptor to drain my gray and black water together? I have the standard black water drain pipe and 3/4 gray water pipe.

Draining black and gray water together

There are some folks that have attached the two together into one dump gate. I've been too scared to make a major plumbing modification so went with a converter that upsizes the grey gate to a normal sized dump gate.

When dumping, I connect to black as usual, then move the hose to the grey.

I'll search for the thread in this forum and update.

Edit
Here's the full thread
Grey drain outlet setup
Cheers

Enoy! With that assembly combined with an end cap, I just keep it attached and not take it off. No need to take it off and store it somewhere since it is self storing and isn't in the way of anything. I can send a pic if of it attached if you are interested, just let me know.

Thanks for the info..... I was lurking in this thread, and just ordered the 3" bayonet end and a cap from Amazon. When they arrive, I'll be taking a trip to Lowe's to complete the project.
I knew there had to be a better way.... Crazy that I've only made one trip so far in my new pup (2nd next week), and I'm already consumed with fixing things that are inadequate from the factory.

Smile Draining black and gray water together

Just got this item from camping world called "Flush King", it connects to the black water and has a side channel that drains the gray water, it is really cool.

Since my trailer has three tanks (one black and two gray), I use these for the gray going to the kitchen (the others are combined into one sewer drain). I just run an old garden hose from the gray to the sewer head. This may be an option for you.

Are you sure the "side channel" drains the gray water? On mine, the side connection is for connecting a water hose to flush the black tank from the bottom. This is not necessary if one has a permanently installed blank tank flush.
