I had a related problem on my '12 Lacrosse 301RLS. The dump valve handles are under the wardrobe slideout so they're quite difficult to reach. I was trying to close the Black water valve but must have been pushing a bit off-centre and as it closed the handle broke off at the threaded ended. I wasn't able to open it again until the dealer replaced the handle, so spares are available.

I just noticed a week or two back, that the gray water handle was almost completely unscrewed and ready to fall off. It's now held on with LockTite .

Recently, while the trailer was in at Lazydays in Tucson, the Service Tech added two metal straps which "guided" the rods to prevent them being pushed off centre and breaking.

I don't know if everyone knows exactly what I'm talking about.....the handle AND the metal extension arm with the female threads on the other end is where it came off. The handle is actually glued to the metal arm on mine and I lost the whole thing.

Been there done that. I had to use pliers to dump my tanks for a trip. PrimeTime sent out replacements and I used Locktight to keep them in place. Hundreds of miles later they haven't budged.

Oh now I know what you need. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Check out the link.

RV Sewer hose, parts, adapters, tanks, accessories

Scroll about half way down the page and you will see the rods and the t handle.

I think I've seen them in the thick rv parts books in different lenghts also. Good luck.

I ended up buying two handles from my dealer (they did not offer to comp them to me) at 15 bucks each. Never could find one online that matched. now at least I should have part numbers if I need to look them up in the future.

This just happened to me this weekend. I had to take the rod and handle off of the black tank to use on the gray tank to dump after the weekend.
