Bayonette Fitting on Dump

What have yall done to upgrade to the newer model of black water fittings as I have tried three places and all have the smaller, by about 1/4 inch (bayonette?) fitting, for the standard 3 inch dump. The drain size seems to be the same but the clamps are smaller in diameter to fit my drain.
thanks as usuall for all advice. Working like crazy to prepare for first voyage this Thanksgiving.
James

Either purchase a Theford to Valterra adapter (Camping World) or buy all Thetford fittings. Most camping supply merchants carry these, or I have also purchased them directly from Thetford. I looked for Thetford on line and called them directly.

I'm not sure I would call that an upgrade. You need to hold a Valterra part side to side with a Thetford part and see which one is of better quality. I made up my mind years ago. Thetford for reliability.

i have agree with gary, the thetford parts are of higher quality.

they are available, sometimes it just takes a little looking to find them.
