Sewer Drain

The drain handle for my new Vengeance 420v12 is located under the slideout. Is there a modification that makes this easier to use?

Easier to pull or easier to reach? Either way, they do make electric dump valves that only require the push of a button.

That or have someone thats handy in plumbing, replumb it to a more convenient location. That's if you have the height to make such a mod without it hanging too low. I've not seen a lot of feedback on the quality (read as trouble free operation) of the electric dump gate valves to have a feel for if they are a nice upgrade or a waste of money on something mechanical that has worked fine for decades. At least in my mind, there are those questions.

I run a semi truck now and then, and this is the first solution I thought of. It's used to pull the lever for unhooking fifth wheel couplers on big rigs. But the pullers like this one have a little extra tab that might work for pushing your valve handle back in as well as pulling it. And the price is right! Any truck dealer/shop should have these and maybe Amazon too.
