    Much better quality than the plastic handled waste valve that I replaced. Feels like it should last. The main thing that is annoying is getting the seals lined up right without them falling out of place when you slide the valve in. Then when it''s in you''ll wonder if they are in the proper positions. It can be a bit of a tight fit installing this between 2 pipes so take your time and make sure the gaskets are in proper. Oh and before removing the old valve clean your black tank for far longer than you ever have before. This is a job you''ll want to do in an RV park so you''re not hogging a waste station and make sure to use one of those water jet hoses that spin really fast to pressure wash the inside of your tank. I cleaned my tank for about an hour with many complete fills to get every last turd out and I''m so glad I did as that prevented any surprises from coming out while the valve was removed.

    I purchased this to replace a valve that dragged on the pavement when the support failed. Once I figured out how to drain the tank without making a big, stinky mess, I disassembled the old valve and drain flange. This came with the washers needed to assemble the fitting. I removed the old one and cleaned the flange to which it needed to mount. Install two washers, place on pipe flange, install new bayonet flange, install 4 bolts and nuts, and it was done. Then I fabricated a new support which should prevent this from ever happening again.

    The valve operates smoothly. The fact that it has a metal handle appealed to me and was probably the biggest factor that favored this one over some other brands I saw.

    I ordered this because a pipe broke off of my travel trailer that connected both my grey and black water tanks through a smaller valve like this near the tank and this one ultimately at the end by the cap which is made by the same brand. The part I had wasn''t broken, but I couldn''t find any of the square bracket pieces to replace the one that broke off; turns out the cap part had a square ring around it and it was clamped onto this piece but there''s no way to separate it so I just had to glue the broken piece back together. After swapping it anyway, I noticed it moved nice and smooth...too smooth...like it was loose. I matched it up to my old one and found the gap along the sides of the piece that pushes in was larger than on my old one. My old one had such a close clearance that I never even noticed it before. I chalked it up to being "an improvement over the original plastic handled one" and put it on anyway. Mine has the valve parallel to the ground and when not under pressure from having "stuff" inside the pipes pushing against it, it will eventually wiggle outwards, opening the valve. Literally the only difference I can tell between this one and the old one besides the gap "issue" is the actual hand grip piece itself is metal and not plastic, there''s nothing else that makes it more special in any way, no better gaskets, no specialized materials, nothing. Just buy the plastic one. Or buy this one if you want the luxurious feel of cold steel between your grip as you pull the valve for maybe 2 seconds. I live in a hot dry climate and the plastic held up fine and I would argue would be more ideal as it would retain less heat. Now they just need to offer one with a rubberized grip or something...and those stupid proprietary square plates individually.

    This Valterra bladex valve was a direct replacement for the one in my old Carriage 5th wheel RV. I replaced both the 3" and 1 1/2". The new valves operate much easier / more smoothly and more importantly the slow leak stopped. The outlet pipe is now bone dry when the valves are shut - as it should be.
    .
    I did replace the bolts that came with the 3" valve with stainless steel. That''s not a complaint - just the old ones were really rusted and difficult to remove and my waste valves are in an awkward location under the RV.
    .
    Due to valve location I used extensions. If that is your situation as well no worries. I used pliers and vice grips with cloth (firmly but gently - not "crush" ) to hold the shaft and unscrew the handle, then screw on the extensions.
    .
    It''s been less than a month so I can''t speak for longevity but I expect them to last for years. The new ones look like the old ones I removed and those were in service for probably 20 years.

    Before starting on this install, thoroughly clean and dry your black tank. I rinsed the tank three times and then opened the valve and left the cap off. That allowed the pipe, tank and valve to dry out.

    A lot of websites that I looked at for installation advice recommended replacing the supplied hardware with stainless steel. I did that. After removing the 15 year old hardware I can only conclude that I wasted my money on the stainless steel hardware. (Maybe those websites were dealing with inferior products?)
    The old hardware came off without any issues.

    As part of my install, I changed the orientation of my valve so that it no longer pointed down. I broke the old valve when going over some very rough roads in western Colorado.

    Valterra doesn''t provide any torque specifications. Get the nuts tight, but not so tight that you break the plastic body.

    The only thing I hate so far is the ABS guillotine, which is formed into a very sharp blade for sliding closed between the rubbers. It should not be sharp enough to cut a fool. It is ABS, or crying out loud. That thin, sharp edge was folded in a few places on both units. Would it kill their bottom line to make a plastic guillotine with a slightly rounded blade edge?

    It is interesting these days, while the dog can pee and poop in the yard - even a small leak on the black tank can really upset people. I am not talking it always leaks, just a few ounces when taking the cap off can cause a commotion.. so having this take 10 minutes to replace and being easy to get to is ideal. After you install this - the slide will go in and out like slicing butter. Then, while it looks like it would leak, there are gaps on either side and the slide is not that tight, not one drop gets past this sucker.. so replace yours today and be happy you did!

    Original black valve on our trailer was leaking from stem, requiring repair because who wants poop water dripping? I elected to replace entire valve because who knows if you just order the seals-- will they fit? Just order the whole valve and be done with it. I''m well satisfied with this valve and would order this same valve again. It opens and closes much better and smoother than the original even when it was new.

    Bought this to replace an existing valve on my travel trailer. Perfect fit and operates smoothly. You have to take care installing the 2 rubber seals and I recommend coating with a plumbers grease first. Also apply some penetrating oil to the bolts. Installation is straight forward but make sure that the rubber seals stay in place. I found this easier to do after disconnecting the retaining/stabilizing bracket that holds the waste pipe to the trailer, allowing a little more separation of the pipes to insert the valve. Don''t forget to use appropriate gloves and recommend you flush out the tank before working on this. Also helps to leave the cap off overnight and let the inside of the pipe dry out. After completion, run water through the tank and check for leaks on the valve. Now I can just replace the valve handle next time I break one off!!

    Watch the video offered before you buy if you are unsure as I did. Things have changed quite a bit. Mine was an older model so I went for the full valve as recommended in the video. I am glad I did. On my older pipes it was an exact fit with the new / different gaskets included. Nuts and bolts also come in the package. Again, watch the video for correct installation. What I thought I knew and what I needed to do were different, and lube with silicone as per instructions, not grease as it can destroy the gaskets and seals, see, I learned something.....Additional information: I found when installing I kept the valves open so that I could see inside and make sure the gaskets stayed in place while tightening.
