Sewer hose re-plumb ?

On our 2004 Pace Arrow 37c, the "Y" pipe just down from the black and grey water slide valves, terminates just about 6' from the bottom of the plastic box.
There is a removable access plug under the "Y" pipe, put snaking the hose up thru this hole and hooking up the drain hose is a bear...

SO.............My question is, have any of you re-plumbed the dump system to add an elbow and a short length of PVC underneath and out to the edge of the coach, with a 4 lug fitting and a cap?

It would seem that this mod would let the system drain completely and be much handier, than leaving the drain hose curled up in the box with about a quart of sewage laying in the hose.

Any thought are welcome re what you have done............

Be sure to seal the gap thru the compartment floor when you extend the drain to keep mice out.

I used a different approach. The angle of the pipe required a tight bend in the flexible hose. I bought a bigger "port cover" and moved the hole in the bottom of the wet bay to line up with the rigid pipe. Works great now.

Any time I leave the hose hooked up I block the mice out.

Sewer

O.K. Guys,
Here is the "semi permanent" version using a swivel connector from Valterra and their end cap assy. The 3" pipe and elbow are from True Value HDWR.
Total cost was under $40.00. If this works to my satisfaction, I may "hard plumb" it in.
Tell me what you think.
