Would it have been cheaper and quicker to tee the lines and install only one shutoff valve?
Our motorhome has three vent lines coming off the top of the tank. Do they make a tee for that? I guess two tees could be used with one shutoff.

I did T mine with just one shut off on the rear tank. But I would still love to tie in at a point above the tank level

We would also like to extend ours which is on the opposite side of the motorhome from the wet bay.
A shutoff near all the factory valves in the wet bay would probably make the most sense for ease of access and as a reminder to open it when using the tank and pump.

I don't think it would have been much cheaper or easier. I didn't think about a tee. Either way it only cost a few bucks.

I have 2 tanks, 2 overflow lines, and 2 small corks from Ace hardware. The corks 'live' in the cabinet with the slideout switch when they are not plugged into the overflow lines. The lines are easy to see and easy to reach with the slide IN.

Slide moved in, then put corks in; corks out then slide moves out. Having the corks and switch in the same cabinet makes it easy to remember and check.

I did tee my two together and ran one section of pex back to just below the fresh water fill, where I put on a quarter turn brass shutoff valve. Now when I fill I can stand back and watch and once water trickles out of the overflow I can shut the valve and remove the fill hose. Once set up I use the overflow valve to fill dog water bowls, and once we've used some water I just leave it open.
The overflows used to be hard to see back between the tires, now its easy.
