Y-Connector

Does anyone have the Y-Connector for the Rhino Hose? I just ordered one and realize that the connection to the Y doesn't match the end of the hose. It looks like I need the same fitting that is at the camper end to attach it to the Y. I can't seem to find this fitting anywhere unless I'm missing something. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't know for sure about the Rhino hose, don't know what is different about it. Most sewer hoses are 3 inches, and that's about it. They use a bayonet fitting on the end at the camper, and various elbows/adapters on the other. Camping world would be a place to check online, as they sell the Rhino hose. Since you just ordered one, might check with who you ordered from.

Thanks Rebel, that's just what I was looking for. I ordered the Y from amazon but couldn't find this adapter.

I have the "Y" connector and it already had the pins needed to attach the hose. There is also a "Y" with out the pins that is used for hoses that are clamped on with the metal hose clamps.

Caper, are you saying that I don't need the adapter that Rebel listed? The picture of the Y looks like it needs the bayonet connector unless I'm not seeing something.

Sideout1961, you will need that Y for a Rhino hose, and you will also need the 5' extension to get the elbow to the ground connector on between the Y and the end.

Boy this is really getting expensive with all these adapters. All I want to do is get both my sewer and galley tank into the same hole so I don't have to keep moving the hose. My galley outlet is under my slide and a pain to get to.

Have you considered just piping them together behind the release valve and then you will only need one flexible hose?

Is this the style you have purchased? It is the type I have. You do not need any extra hose the "Y" will attach directly to the fitting at the sewer end. I have the same set up with my galley under the slide out.

I have seen on here people that have done that. I would have to check to see if that's possible. I have an enclosed underbelly and the galley valve is in front of the axle

Caper, I order the Rhino flex Y. Looks like the one you posted. I posted a link to it in an earlier post.

If you have this "Y" and Rhino Flex hoses you will not need any adapters. The hose clips to the "Y" and the "Y" attaches to the sewer adapter. I have the long hose going from the black and shower outlet and a 5' from galley outlet. Works great.

Guys
He has the rhino flex hose (see link) the elbow will not connect to the Y, I have one, you would need a different elbow with the std connectors, and a replacement end. It's cheaper to get the extension hose

I have the old style. The new style has the hose attached to the elbow. The old style did not. Sorry if I gave you the wrong info. I forgot that they changed the ends of the hose at the elbow.

Check this thread that eliminates the need for a Y. Probably a LOT cheaper that all the adaptors etc.
