Sewer lines question

Well i have the cougar 29BHS and there are 2 sewer line hook ups. I was wondering how do i get the hoses to be able to connect to one "T" section so i can have both lines to drain into the sewer? Seems like the ends of the lines will not connect to the final "T" at the sewer (female/male ends). Can the end of the hoses be changed out? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Most ends of your sewer hose should disconnect from the elbow that goes in sewer drain they just twist,unless yours is permanently fastened to your hose.

If it is permanently mounted you can cut hose and use these on end, or get new hoses.

I bought 2 10 ft extensions that go into my y connector. That goes into my 15ft sewer hose. I also have the 2 separate connections.

As you can see the one end hooks to the camper and other end wont connect to the "Y" adapter.

The Y connector is not designed to hook directly to the campground sewer connection, a 3rd piece of hose is necessary to go from the Y to the sewer. You'll have to have 3 hoses, the Y, & an elbow to connect to the sewer connection. Possibly the rubber donut for the elbow, most all parks/campgrounds require a solid connection to the sewer & if it's not threaded you'll need the donut, your neighbors will also appreciate it.

You have to disconnect the end that goes in the sewer from your hose,it twist off from where the black hose connects to orange part, then black hose will connect to your y

The left connection on the hose hooks to the rv. The other end goes into the ground but wanna instead connect to the Y section then go into the ground

If I understand what you're asking, you are trying to connect the sewer hose "barb connector" to the "Y fitting" which is also a "barb connector". You need "the other end adapter"....

You could "RUBE GOLDBERG" it and use one of these in the first photo: Or you could use one of the Thetford adapters like the second photo. They are "pricey" to be sure, and you can likely find them for less than half the asking price on Amazon at this link: https://www.amazon.com/Thetford-4054...r+hose+adapter

Why not purchase two 5' or 10' sewer hoses to connect the trailer ports to the "Y" and then connect your standard hose from the "Y" to the sewer?

Or...hook your standard hose to one port - dump and rinse - then move your standard hose to the other port and repeat?
