Question slope pad for black holding tank

We have a center bath, rear bed trailer. Removed drop pan for black tank to replace both dump valves, while in there noticed the flat plan for the grey tank was very rusty on the inside, so removed that also.

Two questions:
1. Is no slope pad under the black tank. Any ideas where to get one.
2. While replacing valves, have to replace pvc plumbing, can't locate a 3x3x3 TeeWye with a long radiius bend. it seems to be special r.v. fitting. locale dealers just stare at me and say cant get.

need to figure out how to send pics

On my í73 there is one. Itís made of Styrofoam. I can get you a picture tomorrow if that would help. I assume the bottom of the black tank is shaped in some way that slopes towards the valve (i.e. not flat)? You can probably make one from a large chunk of Styrofoam if you have a few basic measurements. I gotta wonder why there isnít one there now.

Sliverslug,
That black teewye fitting is a standard plubming part in ABS plastic. It might be available at your local home center, or failing that you could try a local plumbing supply house.

Couple pics

Here's a couple of pics of what mine looks like, if you need it. Let me know if you need dimensions, tho mine are probably different than yours.

Well I can't seem to get picture number two to upload. You get the idea.
