Valterra waste valve at pipe end

So, I have lost faith in both my gray and black water valves. I had the black one replaced under warranty in April, but it is leaking already and the gray one leaked on our last trip. I will probably get in there in the fall and deal with the issue myself, but don't want to crawl under there in the 95 degree heat. Anyway, I bought a valve to go on the end of the pipe where it meets the flex hose, but there were no instructions. It looks like you just cut off the old bayonet end and use the black ABS glue to attach this one. Anyone put one of these on?

Already bought the glue in one, I don't want one more joint to leak. I am frankly fed up with the waste system on this. 6k miles, already had the black gate replaced, the cables are stiff as hell to pull to dump, not impressed with FR engineering.

I use the twist on valve. Should be standard equipment. Second trailer I have one on. Twist it on and leave it. Thousands of miles no problems.

X2, plus if it wears out just twist off and add a new one. You can only cut your waste pipe off so many times...

Send the other one back....

I've carried the twist-on gate valve for years to be a temporary fix if either the black or gray valve were to ever start leaking(they haven't yet), ... but, recently I've found another use that it's perfect for as well, ... "the gray water flush of the black tank" ... when at a dump station where it's not possible to attach the water to the black tank flush to do more cleaning, ... I attach the twist-on valve, open it and drain the black tank as usual, then close the twist-on valve - but leave the black valve open- then open the gray valve, ... the gray water will flow into the black tank until the volume is balanced between the two tanks - close the gray valve - open the twist-on valve and the black tank will drain one more time, ... then finish by using the rest of the gray water to rinse the hose as always, ... works great

Even though you bought the one you have now, you should take the advice given here and not use it. Instead, buy and use the valve CHICKDOE suggested and provided a link for. You wonít regret it. You probably will regret using the valve you already purchased.

You came here for advice, and you got it. You got good advice. Why not take advantage of the purpose of this forum and make your life a little easier?

I use the twist on gate permanently and carry a second for the below situation.

If you ever need to run your hose uphill to a sewer connection that sticks out of the ground, you can clip two valves together and avoid getting your feet wet when you disconnect the hose after dumping.

We use the twist on Valtera.

The problem with our rig is that the connection is lower to the ground than we like and we lost a couple to 'twisting off' when we were close to bottoming out. Solved that problem by twisting the valve so that the pull out valve is as close to the bottom of the rig as possible while giving enough room to pull out the valve to empty.

We considered the glue on valve, but that seemed like a lot more work than using the twist on valve.

With the twist on valve, you open that one first to eliminate any 'leakage' from the original valves, then open the other valves to empty as normal.
