Black Water Tank Valve

Does anyone know if there is a replacement handle for the plastic one that broke on my Black Water tank valve.

Of course there is, although we probably can't help you unless you post a photo of it.

Or better yet, if you call the FR parts department and give them the Vin# of your camper and email them a photo they will probably ship one out to you!

Or take the broken piece (and photo on your phone) in to a Camping World or other RV parts store and maybe they have them on hand!

Thanks. It's doubtful that Forest River would have a replacement. This is the cheap black plastic handle that is molded to the shaft. The same as used on all the majority of the RV drains that I've seen. Will try Camping World or drill a hole in the shaft and make my own.

Then you can get it at CW...

Bought a couple of them there myself over the years!

You can also purchase the handles on Ebay, much cheaper than CW, especially if your not near CW or a RV store.

Thanks for the info. I will check out Ebay. I'm not a big fan of CW,don't like to give them any business unless absolutely necessary.

I'll buy RV supplies and parts from CW...

I try not to let politics or any of that other stuff influence where I can get that stuff.

Having been in the retail industry for the last 20 years...the internet is not an option for me unless there is absolutely no other way.

Now...buying an RV from CW...NO WAY!

Handles screw on and off. Use pliers and rag to hold steel shaft and twist.

Black water tank valve

Think most are plastic now. I broke my gray water one bought a metal one at a RV dealer. Mine screws on so easy to replace. Bet yours is too. Not a fan of CW either only in emergency. Even thow I bought my camper there.

When mine broke, I happened to be in the Yukon Territory of all places and the local RV repair people had a cast aluminum one that threaded right on. I picked up two of them to have one as a spare. I also got some ready rod and extended my handle to where I can reach it without standing on my head!😀
