Waste valves

I have 2013 312 bhx and I have noticed that when opening my cap to drain tanks I have some fluids that come out when all my valves are closed. Any suggestions on easy fix or take back to dealer to have them fix it. Thx

All four of mine weep a little as well.
I wouldn't be concerned till you get a foot full.

Probably just residual fluid between the valves and the cover. I always put the slinky or an old coffee can under the cap when I loosen it.

Don't dare let any of that stuff hit the ground or the Stink Police will arrest you for dumping waste water on the ground!

When you remove the cap, hold a can under it and pull the bottom of the cap out first. Angle the cap so it somewhat points away from you and don't pull it off more than about 1/8" at the bottom.

I think its the nature of the beast.
I have 4 holding tank valves and they all have a small amount of water that comes out when pulling the cap.
I don't think there's really a "fix"

a half a cup or less
I would not worry about
anything more than that and it may be time to
change out the valve or valves
with the proper replacement valve
change out time should be prox 10 to15 min
of course that is if all goes smoothly
it does happen occasionally
