Drain Valve issue

I have a great difficulty opening & closing my waste tank valves. What things can I do to make this opening & closing easier?

Drain Valve issue

I took mine in to the dealer and had them fix the problem at the same time they examined why the water valves weren't sealing and retaining the water in the tanks. They ended up replacing them all and now they appear to be working properly.

The cable assemblies make things more difficult than they should be. Just replaced my black tank valve. Now it works better. You might consider taking each one apart, cleaning and applying a liberal amount of plumbers grease at reassembly
