Solenoid valves - water drain issues
Good morning everyone! This is a great site with a wealth of information... I hope to contribute as much as I can take from it!
I have recently acquired a 1989 Country Coach Concept. It's pretty amazing as it's my first RV ever! I have a ton of stuff to learn though.
I've done a lot of searching on the site but it seems like most people have manual valves when it comes to their water tanks and systems.
Mine are Goyen 12V dc solenoid valves. Model 12BWJ2
They are normally "closed" (stopping the water from emptying) and "open" when I flip the Water Drain switch. The thing is... they don't seem to fully close if at all. The only way I can keep water in the tank is by sticking a cork in the drain tubes below the valves.
Can anyone supply ideas on where I can find proper repair kits? I've cleaned the valves (coil and diaphragms) and they still don't work right. I think they're old and tired. I'd LOVE to not have to replumb in NEW valves.
Thanks for reading!
