Dump Valve Handles

Found my black tank handle loose and grey tank handle missing this morning at the dump station. 3rd trip in my new LaCrosse and learned something new. The handles are in fact removable and will work their way loose and find a new home on the side of the road. Just an FYI incase someone else didn't know about this. Yet another thing to add to my list of things to check before leaving the house.

Notice mine were loose as well. Just got it back from the dealer and one of the things they did was place some lock tight on the handles. They still turn, but you can feel some resistance now.

Is it the handle that turns off the rod or what should I be looking for to try and prevent it from happening to us?

I had the same problem. I just emailed PT through their website. They shipped 2 new ones, no questions asked. I just paid the shipping. And that is to Canada. PT service is the best. My dealer didn't carry them and looked at my like was from another planet when I was describing them.

Just sent an email to Prime Time about a replacement handle and also about the electric jack on the tongue of the trailer. It has been working fine, then all of a sudden this weekend it will not retract. I removed the cover looking for a loose connection but didn't find anything. It did start to work while I was hooking up to come home but has quit again. Is there a self resetting breaker that I can't find for each direction of travel? It looks like a simple enough system that just reverses polarity to change direction of the motor. Seems like if it was a breaker or fuse it wouldn't work in either direction. Extend works perfectly but retract has a mind of it's own. Anyone else had a problem with their front jack and fixed it?

Sounds like a bad switch.

Prime Time is sending a new handle and rod for the dump tank valve to replace the one that worked its way loose and fell off. Will be reinstalling with loctite to prevent this from happening again. Prime Time customer service at its best yet again. As far as the electric jack goes, looks like another trip to the dealer to have it looked at per PT's suggestion.
