Yes. And putting that much pressure ruins the braided cables.

When I added a cable control to our galley valve, the replacement cable was solid wire inner cable. It came in a 6 foot length. Might be a better option for you.

That's what the cable I replaced on the black was a solid wire.

Seems to me that a solid wire cable is the only way to go. Wouldn't a braided cable bunch up when pushed?

That's exactly what happens to the braided cable. That's why I had to replace.

Exactly. I didn't think they even used a braided wire on any of them. Doesn't make much sense.

I have replaced the black tank's electric valve with a manual cable valve. That will give me a lot of comfort. I put 2 new Drain Master electric valves in the grey tanks. I only have to drop half a belly panel to access these valves. Replacing the grey valves with manual would be a real pain.

My cvable type black valve was also sticking and turned out to be quite the task. Had to remove the plastic belly covers under the trailer then I found the dump valve and generously lubed it with WD-40 There are grooves and cracks i worked it into. After a generous lubing and working it in and out a few times it works smooth as new now. My old trailer had the same issue. I seems like they get sticky in time. I'm not sure if the 0=rings dry up or solids get attached to the blade portion of the valve. But the WD-40 always seems to work.

So how hard is it to replace the cable? I've got a stuck open black valve that maybe is just the cable and not the valve..

Thanks
Greg

The cables aren't that hard to change. If you have the enclosed underbelly, gaining access to the valves is the problem, and that isn't a huge problem depending on whether you want to cut a hole in it or not.

You can go to Valterra's site and download the instructions if you want to see how it's done.
