Dual sewer hook ups

I have a 2016 Challenger with two grey tanks, has anyone come up with a good connection method, I am using two hoses with the Y adapter at the sewer dump, but the kitchen Grey is a long dump to the Y
There has to be a better way

Not sure about anyone else but we've had our 37TB for about 18 months spending at least 7 months a year. The Y connection is the only solution we've found. We carry 3 10' heavy duty hoses and 2 15' foot rhino hoses. Only had to use them all once - the sewer was WAY at the back of a pull through space (probably designed for 5ers). When we are staying for 1 or 2 days, don't hook anything up just dump before we leave.

When I get a bit agitated about using the Y connector, I remind myself how nice is to have the 80 gals of gray water storage when we are dry camping. And we dry camp for 3 months per year.

Just my 2 cents.

As large as those tanks are I can let them fill for some time. Later, I simply dump the black, then gray at the joined connection, then hook the hose to the 2nd gray tank.

I do have a Y connector if I feel like using it.

I suppose one could plumb up a macerator or two and streamline the process.

Look at "Sewer Solutions." Under $100 - with a couple 1 inch pvc pipe connectors and 3/4 inch 50 foot garden hose $20 from Harbor Freight and your problem is solved for a LONG time. Basically a water powered macerator and with good tank chemical like Happy Camper you do not even need water pressure.

I use a y connector. 15 foot hose from front dump valve and 10 foot hose from rear dump valve into a Y and then however long a hose that is needed to the sewer connection, usually 10 or 15 feet.

We also use the Y connector with our Rhino flex hoses... seems to be the only reasonable solution that we have found. We carry 5 different length sections so we can handle most campground sewer dump situations.

I think I have about the same setup at Dave. I really don't have any issues unless I park too far back or too far forward. Here is a picture.

That looks similar to mine with one exception. My dump valve for the outdoor kitchen and shower is in the compartment immediately behind the rear wheels so it appears my 2 dump valves are closer together than yours so I can use a shorter hose from the rear valve into the Y.

I don't have an outside kitchen instead I have a bath and 1/2. I have 3 15' hoses and a Y and haven't had any issues except like I said if I pull too far forward or back. Since I am still learning, there were a couple of times I had move so my hoses would fit. This RV stuff is definitely a learning process.
