Buy a second drain hose.....don't think you will want to try to pipe the two to a single outlet...

Thanks for the reply, Lifespalette. Do many campsite have 2 sewer connections/site? I curious as to why Jayco went with the design with two separate drains for the two tanks.

Get one of these and some hose and you should be good for most configurations.

I think you missed my point as to why Jayco used this design. The trailers I have had in the past essentially had this built in. Surely Jayco had more in mind then simply require me to buy an extra hose and "Y" adapter! Regards for answering.

You can connect the sewer lines with a "Y" connector. You'll need more hoses, but it can be done.

I know this sounds funny, but I will often scoop the dish water into the toilet. Not a difficult thing in our 197. I use an ice cream tub, one of the rectangular shaped ones. Helps with black water volume and saves pumping water into the toilet if you aren't on city water.

Many campgrounds have two sewer inputs and they could certainly be used if needed. I think they are mostly to accommodate the different evolving types of campers.
I believe with many floor plans make it difficult or expensive to pipe the distant drains internally so the easy way out is to have them in different locations on the floor plan. Not to convenient for the user. I see a lot of them lately with a external Y connecting them together.

They make a "Y" to connect two hoses together.

I think its mostly so you can either back in or pull in. When we were on lake Ontario the bigger RVs pulled in to see the sunsets and water view out the front window and we backed it to see a view out our back windows. Nice to have a choice. I have never seen them anyplace else though.
