Valterra T58 Twist-On RV Waste Valve

The waste plumbing design on my Jay Feather 24T was not well thought out. I have 3 tanks - 2 gray and, 1 black water. There is a gate valve right at the drain of each tank - 3 gate valves total. There is a lot of plumbing between the 3 valves and the sewer hose 3" bayonet fitting. When I remove the termination cap to connect the hose at the dump station, there is always about a pint of liquid that comes out. It makes a mess. I purchased the Valterra T58 Twist-On Waste Valve to connect to the bayonet fitting at the end to add another gate valve to the system. It made for a great resolution to the issue. The only problem was that the additional gate valve caused the sewer dump to stick out too far from the side of the Jay Feather. The solution was to cut off 6" of the ABS tubing and add a termination adapter with 3" bayonet x 3" slip hub to connect the T58 Twist-On Waste Valve.

Quick Fix & Bonus
It was a quick and easy fix that also had an added benefit. We have 2 gray tanks, and the kitchen tank always get full before the bath tank. Now I'm able to keep the 2 gray tank gate valves open which, in effect, combines the 2 tanks into 1 large tank.
