Wygantmb, did you buy a single assembly like the 2nd picture? I presume the factory provides a separate valve on each line (grey and black)? The easiest option would be to just buy a wye connector and plumb it when setting up with sewer hoses from each tank to the wye. (Credit to member Daisy Boykin for the pic). If you want to plumb it permanently, it would be better to use a wye with sweep bends. It would flow better that way.

If you don't have an axle in the way like in my first pic, then yes, a permanent connection would avoid all the hoses and having to store them somewhere, but you'd need to have the plumbing skills to do the mod. I don't know that I do! Fortunately, my Rockwood TT was already plumbed with a wye at the factory.

Same height as factory. I only unbolted the rear valve and bolted the new one up.

Nice set up. Makes me wonder why FR doesn't just put the standard square tube bumper back there for the hose, even if it has to come out further than the spare. That would also free up room underneath to put one valve for black and grey discharge. Anway, that's a great set up you got there.

Spurticus I'm thinking because if they did people would start mounting the receiver hitches for bike rack and the bumpers wouldn't hold that. Plus that would change the tonque weight if you mounted anything back there and unfortunately so lme people don't care or know how that changes ALOT. Just my 2 cents.
