Here is a link to a Twist on Valve. Let's say that your grey tank is fuller than your black tank. If all your tanks are at the same level and all plumbed to the same waste outlet connection, you can attach the Twist on Valve to the outlet, making sure the twist on valve is closed. You can open the gray tank and the black tank and grey water will flow into the black tank. Then close the black tank an gray tank valves. When you dump, connect the dump hose to the Twist on Valve, and dump the small amount of waste water behind the Twist on Valve. Remove the Twist on Valve and dump your tanks as normal (this procedure keeps most of the black tank waste from contaminating the Twist on Valve).
We also use the twist-on-valve but only combine the water in the two gray tanks. We also don't remove the twist-on-valve when dumping (I put a screw through it to prevent from being removed). Just dump the black first, followed by a black tank rinse then the gray tanks. Everybody does it a little differently

If I was going to do it this is the way I would do it. Easy, quick, and can go right back to as if this was never done at all if you want to "split up" the tanks again.

Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest.
