Guess it wouldn't hurt to ask or measure some others. The one on my 5'er is about 10.5".

Hard to tell from the pictures. What is all the yellow stuff back near the tank? Reminds me of 3M weatherstrip adhesive. Also, I see a clamp in the second picture, designed to hold the outlet to the frame. Is there a bolt from the top of that clamp to the frame? If that is a rubber coupling between the tank and the valve could you adjust that clamp for a little more height? Be careful, you can have the outlet level with the bottom of the tank, but not uphill. The height of your portable waste tank is not in play here, only what will drain your tanks completely.

From looking at the position of the tank, where the piping is attached, I don't see where you can change the hight of the outlet itself without raising the trailer hight. You may want to check into some type of lift kit.
This was a big problem for Jayco owners a few years back. Jayco's solution was changing the torsion axle ride hight.
You most likely have a leaf spring axle set up. Dexter makes a axle " Over/Under Kit.
