waste valve replacement 08 wolf pack 295wp

just wondering how hard it is to change these valves, crawled underneath and had a look due to leaking valves. I never put a wrench to them yet. I got a 2008 wolf pack 295wp and it looks like the valves are tucked in behind the tank and drain pipe. Shitty spot IMO. but anywasy... Anybody else do this job, I'm not the type of guy to pay someone else to maintain my stuff unless absolulty necessary. thanks in advance for wisdom.

Where and what is leaking?

Is it leaking passed the valve and down into the pipe (all internal to the pipe), maybe the valve is not shutting all the way (blockage) inside the pipe or is it leaking to the outside (like dripping onto the ground from the valve/pipe)?

Is it the valve itself, like a seal, dripping between the mating surfaces of the valve? Or is it from a crack in the pipe?

If it is just a seal inside the valve that is not hard at all, most valves have four bolts, unscrew them and separate the valve in half and pop a new seal in.

If the valve itself is cracked (plastic housing) that is not too bad either, just some standard pipe work, gluing and fitting a valve in.

If it is a cracked pipe, not too bad either, just some pipe work, or a patch kit depending on type of plastic piping you have.

When the valves are exposed the more room the better but do-able either way.

It may just be something blocking the valve, spray water up there and give a good rinse. Sometimes debris or grime blocks the valve track. If not the seal may have split, cracked or come out. In this case same as above, unbolt the 4 corner bolts and pull apart and take a look.

If you give up trying to fix it.. here is an easy fix.. buy this new valve from Amazon and just twist it on.. (open original bad valve and leave it open).. See:

I ordered the twist on valve but not sure if I'd want black and grey tanks mixing. I will definatly have to enforce my camper rule. Rule #1 no #2.
