Speaking of black tank valves...

My black tank valve is very difficult to operate. Both pulling and pushing the handle, I'm afraid the cable is going to break. Anyone else have this issue and found a cure?

You need more oily/greasy food in your diet!

if you would use REM oil... a gun cleaner/oil would work better... WD-40 is a Water Displacement. It doesn't actually have much for lubricating properties... REM oil would stick around and imbed itself... But that is a great idea!

Hmmm...I was thinking of a silicon spray. I knew WD-40 wouldn't be a good lubricant. I do have a can or Remington gun oil spray!

Try this:
Amazon.com: Camco 40246 RV TST Drain Valve Lube with Coco Oil - 16 oz: Automotive
If it's still sticking then you know it's a cable or handle issue, not the actual valve causing the resistance.

I have had the same issue on our 2012 CC 34rlsa since we bought it new in June of 2013. I finally was able to get under the unit last week and discovered that they must have gotten Stevie Wonder to run the black tank pull cable. What I did was disconnect the pull cable from the docking station and re-route the cable and now it pulls and pushes much easier. Hope this helps.
