2009 XLR Toy Hauler 40X12 HELP

My wife and I just purchased the above toy hauler and I cannot locate the rear bathroom sewage termination valve T handle to operate the valve. I have looked everywhere I know to look and Forrest River does not know where it is ???? If anyone out there has one of the please help me on this one.
Thanks. Bill

If you've followed the pipe from the bottom of the tank to the outlet connection, it would seem to me that they forgot to install the valve.

It’s there, I dumped the front tanks and the rear tank still has 2/3 full. I’ll have to pull the bottom cover off a 40’ toy hauler to trace it, if someone out there don’t know where the T handle is I may have to.

If you have the "Polar" package, the valve should be close to the tank. If you don't, it should be closer to the discharge. A dealer service Dept may be able to tell where to look.
I have two valves on my black tank drain line. One at the bottom of the tank, and one near the discharge.
Good luck hunting.

Thanks but I put some water and antifreeze in it myself not knowing at the time that I would not be able to find the dump valve handle on our maiden voyage.

Bill, the dump valve should be in the tire area directly below the shower.

Guess your dealer doesn't know too much. FR is not much better, usually if you give the VIN number they know the RV. Some competitors have real Customer Service that help, even if it's a used RV. Maybe someone has a number you can get through to FR for the info you need.
