Can't open black tank

Just went to dump my black tank and the handle won't pull out. Tried with all my might but it won't budge. Any solutions? Thanks.

Got it. I had to twist the handle. Felt it loosen up and I thought I snapped it, but I was desperate. Works fine now. Maybe some WD40?

Glad you got it working.

I assume it was a cable operator on that valve. You can try lubing it good several times, but I'd plan on getting a replacement pretty soon. just in case.
