Gray and black water connections

Hi, been a travel trailer person and recently (8 months) bought a Rockwood HW276. Absolutely loving it, except for one thing. I haven't figured out the separate grey and black water connections. We camp at places with full hook ups, but I have to disconnect the sewer hose from the campground connection and put the garden hose in to dump the grey water. I really want to be able to connect both at the outlets from the camper. It would help, because as a travel trailer camper, I would open the valve for the black water, after dumping black, close the black water valve and open grey water. It helps rinse the black water hose.

After that long winded explanation, the question is, has anyone figured out how to connect both in this manner?

Thank you for any help you all can give, otherwise I am going to the plumbing store and try to figure something out!!!!

black n grey

I also have a hw276 with the same. i found this post from someone else and it looks to me that it will work ill be doing this over the weekend and ill post pics of it


Here's a easy fix for the grey tank- get a Valterra T01-0091VP
then a camco 39533. connect the 2 with a small hose (should be garden hose size i believe. then just connect the rinse cap to a Camco 39812. then connect your black sewer hose and y pipe to the drian. hope this works.

Remember to remove the valve from the rinse cap and put silicone in the hole. Also, use a dremel with a cutting wheel to remove the center sprayer to allow more flow. Maybe make a spare as mine has broken before while draining- little too much stress.

Seriously, thank you for the help. I am working on this today and I am taking it one step further. I am making custom length sewer hoses. Thinking to start with just 1 - 12" and 1 - 18". This way I can have the Y connection close to the outlets on top of the slinky. I will post pics when complete. I bought a few boxes of links to raise the camper at camp grounds with raised dump inlets (already ran into this problem 2 out of the 5 times we've taken the new PUP out).

Here are the photo's including parts and tools. I am doing it this way so that the "Y" connection is closer to the camper. This way I don't need carry that much sewer hose and the gray water will flush out the large section of hose. I hope this helps anyone that should need it.

You don't have to keep your black water hooked up all the time. Only need to do it when you dump. For me, that is when I am packing up. How big is your black tank?

I see you have what appears to be a Rhinoflex sewer hose. This is what we use on our galley:

Or at least we will use this until I do OldCoot's sewer mod!
