Problem reaching gray tank release valve

We have a new 8319SS Rockwood and I've had both knees replaced and not allowed to get down on my knees. Has anyone else had a problem pulling/releasing the gray tank valve? Last time when we emptied my brother was the campground host and he was able to get down under and release the valve. As we are women, does any one have any good ideas? I tried a gripper/reacher and it seemed to work pretty good, but wondered if anyone used something different. Thanks!

The handle for my lacrosse is way under there as well.....while i have not had my knee replaced as my ortho says im too young, i find that sending my 15 year old son under there works well..lol...

But in all seriousness, there are remote dump valves available where you just hit a button located somewhere easy to reach.

X2 my dealer stocks an electric replacement dump valve.
That would be your BEST option.
Let me know if you need more info.

My dealer stock a different less expensive brand that I'm interested in.
