Pull Handle On Black Tank

As I was preparing my camper for the last bump of the season, this happen to me. As I attempted to open the black water tank the plastic housing broke and the backing nut came out. So it is obvious there is no support other then the thin plastic that it is attached to. If you have a set up like this and you have not had any problems yet and if you fell the cable getting tight then this may happen.

Good info and the picture tells the whole story. Our unit has the cable operated valves too but they're secured on metal "L" brackets screwed into the frame.
