Waste drain issue

I love my Jamboree class c, but there is an irritating design flaw for draining the waste tanks. The opening in the floor of the bin that is large enough for the drain hose is blocked by the actual drain pipes and valves. Also, the drain for the waste tanks is lower than the lip of the bin. Since I have to run the drain hose up over the lip of the bin, after I drain the tank and disconnect the hose, there is always water that drops into the bin. I would include a photo but this is my first post and I haven't figured that out yet. I am considering cutting a hole in the bottom of the bin large enough to drop the drain hose through. Has anybody encountered similar problems or have a suggestion?

The drain valves/ assembly can be rotated, have a e1m tioga, and I had to rotate mine down so that I connect the sewer hose through the compartment hole to the exit of both gray and black tank valves.

Typically, (as stated above) the main 3" drain will rotate. Many look at it and figure that it's a fixed design. The grey valve and black valve can individually be rotated by design. Unless yours is bound up, you grab the center drain and push it down toward the hole for an easier connection.

As the previous two posts said, just rotate the drain open up to go straight out. I keep mine that way because the bottom of the wet bay sits too low to the ground for most sewer connections. I just hook when I need to dump. I also added a short clear section so I can see when the black tank flush runs clear.

Thank you for your help. I am going to replace the gray and black valves when I rotate it down. I sure appreciate your help!
