We just got a 2013 model HW 276, and I wanted to see if anyone have remedied the problem of having to change the drain hoses for the black and grey water tanks...

I am not familiar with the HW 276 but I did want to welcome you to the forum. I am sure someone will be around that is familiar with the unit.

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.

I have never seen it to be much of a problem since you keep the black tank valve closed anyway until time to dump. Even the small (12 gal) tanks in the 276 and 296 can go an entire weekend, or longer by keeping the flushing to a minimum. When time to dump, close the valve on the gray tank, remove it's hose from the sewer connection, and hook up your sewer hose for the black tank and dump. For the gray, I use the Valterra T01-0091VP previously mentioned, a regular garden hose, and a Camco 39322 3/4" hose to 3" sewer adapter.
