2019 Arctic Wolf 285

So far the only dislike has been the Black and Gray Water Drain Valves.

The unit had to be designed by someone that has never had to empty the tanks before.

The black water valve is under the trailer (3 feet) so that you need to lay on the ground under the trailer to open the valve. You would not want to lay on the ground at most dump sites, besides I am old and fat.

I ended up installing electric valve operators for about $135 dollars each, the factory should include some sort of remote operators or change the layout.

We just picked up our 2019 Artic Wolf 2 weeks ago and discovered the same thing. We didn't think to look at the waste drain valves during the walk through and were quite surprised when setting it up for the first time. Great idea on the electric valves, we'll definitely look into those!

You can get by with just the 3" black water being electric, but I didn't like the extension bars on the gray valves. One was bent down when delivered.

They came down price a little.

I now have a 2019 AW 295 and my handles are not underneath like that. I wonder if they changed the design.

Those are neat. If wired properly they would be handy for tailgaters. :P

Almost like blowing the sanitary tanks (emptying the tanks with compressed air) on a submarine while it is in dry dock without hoses. Very messy.
