I've watched this thread since I became a member because the set up on my HW296 is a pain to deal with 2 separate outlets. I was looking at buying the Volterra T18 as someone suggested earlier. On amazon for one of the Volterra waste valves they have a video explaining the products they offer and how to use/maintain them. I noticed in a section of the video they said something about collector fittings. I did a search and came up with the Volterra T1010. It's the exact same fitting as the T18 but doesn't have the valves which already come with the camper and it's only $17 and change vs +$40 for the T18. Only thing left to buy is a few feet of 1 1/2" abs, 2 couplers, and a 90 elbow and it'll be just like it should be. I just purchased it on amazon. Should have it Monday. I will post pictures of the process when I install. Just thought a little money could be saved. Now the whole project should be less than $30.

I'm with you on this. I went with the T18 option. One hook-up and two valves. Works great

I went the distance and created this masterpiece- tied my grey water tanks together. Single dump valve for all. Magic.

I used my adapter last week and works like a charm. No cutting, no swapping/installing valves or pvc......drain black, switch hose , drain grey......perfect.

I combined the gray and black water outlet the other day. It's hard to see in the photo. I'll take a better one tonight. I bought a t-valve setup on eBay. It was about $35. Then bought one 1.5" coupler one 1.5" 45 degree angle and 5' of 1.5" abs pipe. All available at most Lowes. The t-valve has the same bolt pattern as the black water valve for the factory. So I just unbolted the factory valve and bolder this one in its place. ThenI cut the gray water pipe about 3 inches past the bracket holding it up. I assembled an new piece of 1.5" abs to the original pipe with a 45 and ran the pipe into the new t. Not there is only one 3" outlet so I can flush my hose with gray water after the black water is done. The whole mod cost about $60 and was done in less then an hour. I did have to relocate the stabilizing jack forward about 18" but that wasn't a big deal. Click image for larger version
