clear connector

Is there a clear connector to fit the Thetford hookup? I would like to get a short one to make sure my tanks are emptying ok, but can't find one. Do I need to switch to Valterra connectors?
Thanks
rod

I think Valera makes an adapter for the white Thetford valves. I found one at my local rv store.

I bought a clear Valterra and adapter to go from a Thetford to the Valterra.

This is the Valterra adapter you will need to attach modern hoses and clear chambers to the white Thetford valves.

Bottom line: Nobody has seen a clear Thetford connector. Use a Thetford to valterra adapter first in line, then you can use whatever Valterra stuff you want.

What is "Wally"?

I was aware that a person could purchase a Thetford to Valetera adapter, change the Thetford connector on the stinky slinky to a Valtera, but would like to not have anymore connections than possible (hate leaks) hence the search for a Thetford clear connector. I do have the setup with an adapter to use the Sewer Solution, but it is assemble to not take apart to eliminate the ever present leaking.
