No problems doing it. What is the driving force behind it though. Don't like the operation of the RV toilet?
Seems like a lot of extra work than just connecting the trailer drain to the septic inlet and dumping them every few days.
With no trap between the septic line and gray and or black tank the septic gasses can flow back up the sewer line through the tanks and up out the roof vent which can cause odor problems through roof vents or windows at times. Normally closed dump valves prevent this when connected to sewer.
I would recommend finding a place to put the tank and rv toilet so you can put them back someday if you want to sell the trailer down the road
