Question Septic system hookup

I'm going to connect my Excella to a septic system in a semi-permanent setting. I figure I'll come out of the drain valve with a 90 degree bayonet adapter and convert from 3" to 4" with a flexible rubber converter (with hose clamps), and then connect to the 4" sewer pipe (which will run 12' or so under the trailer). Any suggestions out there? How about a line on a good parts source? Thanks, Roy

most mobile homes only run a 3" waste line. You can find all the fittings you need a the local home supply. Use 1/2 bubble on your level to get a good drain flow on your lines.
Keep the shiny side up.
