Also, look where the handle is. You will see a hex nut, which can be adjuated in or out a little. It is very possible that a PO has it so tight that the blade simply cannot close completely.

Good thinking! I will check that out in the morning.

Question: Why are all you folks so helpful while CWMB has abandoned me? I'd hate to think there are other problems they are avoiding?!

Thank you!

Because we don't have to fix it for free

Not quite .. because I paid for it in advance and it cuts into the profit.

If camping world won't fix it then call Forest River and ask them to either refer you to a dealer that will or if they'll let you bring out a mobile RV tech to fix it for you. My past experiences with Camping World has lead me to never consider them for any work on my rig.

Remember... He bought it USED. Any repairs other than where he purchased are going to be out of pocket unless FR is feeling awfully generous.

Hi,

In response to the original question, I have the identical unit and year, and have never had that problem.

Hope this helps.

I had seen the Valterra gate valve awhile back and wanted DH to get one and use it, "just in case". It took awhile, but he did get one and it came in VERY handy when our black tank pull valve broke (in the open position). I'm hoping your problem can be permanently fixed but DH now keeps that Valterra on always. Just another layer of "precaution" that is almost never needed but when it is needed, it's invaluable.

Oops, missed the year. You are right, Forest River won't be of any help on this one. You are correct in going back to the dealer and if they told me they noticed it during the checkout and didn't fix it then I'd be talking to the sales manager pretty darn quick. Good luck.

Gate Valve

I always put one on my rig. Just in case. Cheap and works great!
