Where can I get a Water solenoid Valve?

I have a '98 Magna and it's equiped with four solenoids that drain the water tank underneath the water/sewer bay. I have one that is stuck open and drains my tank when i go to fill it. I put a cap on the inderside of the drainpipe under the coach but would like to fix the real problem..

Does anyone know where I can get one of these solenoids?

I've always been a fan of ASCO valves.

There is bound to be a local wholesaler in/near your town but you may have to buy through a contractor. Call your plumber or other commercial type servicer friends and ask.

Pipe size is pipe size regardless of application.
Types of fluids are the same (most good valve bodies are "WOG")
The *gotcha* is going to be coil voltage. 12V DC is a rare bird.

We have extra ASCO valves. We decided to "by-pass" the valve located under our vanity sink after I already ordered it. They are the same as the ones located on the fresh water tank. If you haven't found what you need by now, write me.

Sorry I'm so late responding to this post. I had the same problem with several of these valves. I removed the valves, disassembled them, and did a good cleaning and lube job. They all now work just like new. Give it a try.

They are designed to be serviced

Our 1989 has a few valves, and one stuck open, the manual indicates how to open and clean them, simple task.

On yours it may be same valve, it can be services without removing it from the system.

Look for a clip holding the coil on the top, remove it and be careful as they tend to shoot off, tape seems to help.

Next remove the screws holding the plate and post, clean everything out and then insure the spring is good, a little stretch may help.

Put it back together and try it out, wait on the clip until you are completey finished.

The water pressure on the inlet side holds the valve closed, the unit works vai a vent hole, so very little pressure on the spring is needed, but it must be perfectly clean, a little crud or sand and it will not close
