FWIW... I have two y-valves too. I attach my drinking water Y-valve to camp supply, with one hose going to my RV's water supply, and the second usually to a second white drinking water hose that I feed under the RV to the other side where I cook, and I use that to fill cooking pans with water and for cooking. When I'm doing the black-tank rinse, I remove that Y-valve and attach a different "black" one that feeds (1) my tank rinse mechanism that the OP is concerned about, and (2) my Sewer Solution feed (Valterra product). Even before I needed that Sewer Solution feed , I never felt comfortable mixing my black and white hoses. Period. So one y-valve that feeds both black and white supplies just won't pass my gut check.

A question comes to mind. What kind of water pressure regulator are you using? The cheap ones that look like fat cigars are not only inaccurate but they really restrict the flow of water. IMO, the whole house adjustable pressure kinds are much better and not all that much higher in price.

Personally, I hook a pressure gauge to the campground faucet, and if the pressure is 70 psi or less I don't hook up a regulator at all.
