Replacing the valve is chap and fairly easy. Even with working valves, I still use the Valterra external screw-on valve, just as insurance. After watching someone else get covered in black tank sludge, when their valve quit working, I vowed to never have that happen to me.

CWMB called me today and said to being the unit in. That's about 2.5 hours each way, but I want the valve fixed, so I'm doing it.

I ordered the Valterra T58 Twist-On Waste Valve yesterday and I'll receive it tomorrow. Cheap insurance!

Best of luck. Hoping it gets repaired to your satisfaction.

Thank you all for your help.
You WILL know much more about this when you are finished solving the trouble.

Then you can advise the next poster of what worked for you and how to accomplish the fix.

Id put in my two cents but it wold not be anything that has not already been said here in this thread.

Having done hundreds of repairs on holding tanks and valves , that is not normal. Whom ever works on your unit will find the slide valve seal either damaged or most likely they will find tissue caught in the slider groove preventing the valve from sealing.

Maybe pull up as close as you can to the main walk in entrance, pull your valve open, and show them the "normal leakage" they spoke of ?

JK - Hope they take care of it for you !

Good point! It's not worth taking a full day and about 250 miles round trip just to get them to repair a valve they should have repaired before I took possession.

I can deal with the black water problem using the Valtera T58, then I can find someone else to repair or replace the faulty valve at a more convenient location and time.

The Valtera T58 looks like a very easy fix,,, as long as there is room for one !!!
