First trip

We went on the first camping trip this past week in our new 395 XLR. Not to many things wrong but a few little things. Worst thing was the grey water valve for the bath grey water doesn't shut off all the way, found that out when I removed the cap to drain into the carry tank. Ended up taking some of the under belly down to get to the valve and push it the rest of the way in. Looked at it some and the only way I can see to fix it is to bend the cable a little more at the valve as there is no adjustment at the pull handle. Any one else had to do this?

Well that's a great first trip!
Most likely a kink in the metal pull rod which will do that also...just may need a new perfectly straight rod so it can slide and close completely (had this happen to me - was our fix but yours may be different)

It's not rod operated but cable operated. I checked the extra cable and it is just looped. It's looks to me like the cable is about 1/4 in to long. Will try to just bend the end.
