Many ways to do this
If you still have the original dump valve and bayonet you will need a Thetford adapter. As far as I know there is no 90 degree Thetford adapter available. There are 45 degree adapters that replace the straight fitting on the end of your sewer hose:
I don't know the plumbing configuration on the GT all that well but you may be better off replacing enough parts to be able to cement an ordinary ABS drain elbow in place, and finish it off with a bayonet. I would think you would want to switch out the valve and bayonet from Thetford to Valterra if this has not already been done.
The Valterra parts are available from many other sources also.
When I replumbed the holding tanks in my Cayo I incorporated a 45 degree elbow to make it easier to attach the hose.
