Splicing into underground 3" DWV pipe


I need to splice in a T fitting to a 3" underground pipe that runs to a septic tank for a new RV waste discharge. Question is, how do I get a fitting like that on since the existing pipe is wedged in the soil and there isn't enough room to maneuver a fitting on? Thanks

Do not want to use a tee, use a long sweep tee.
Add 6" long pieces of PVC to the Tee.
Dig out all around the pipe and cut out that section.
Reconnect with 2, repair couplings or a Fernco.
