How to "Fix" Grey Tank Leaking Valve???

Winnebago has a "cable" activated Black & Grey water Valve system. The Grey water valve seems to NOT close all of the way and will leak into the common drain outlet.

Any suggestions of how to get this valve to close?

I would like to stay away from completely taking this system apart to repair.
Thanks.

After time the seals will need to be lubed there is products that can be put in the tank to lube the valve, next when you push the handle all the way in is there any of the shaft showing, the cable cover will stretch over time from use and needs to be adjusted. To do this you will have to get to the valve itself, you will see where the cable enters the valve body and the screws that hold the cable, loosen the screws enough for the cable to move, push the valve shaft all the way close you will feel it then go to the handle and pull it out about 1/8 to 1/4 inch to show some of the shaft then tighten the valve body up. there is another way to do this too there is a allen screw on the valve shaft loosen it adjust the cable as read earlier then tighten allen screw this is the easiest way to do it. The first way is if the cable cover is stretched to far, also add the lube to the tank pour it down the tub drain or the sink. hope this helps

I should have mention if the fix don't work then the seal will have to be replaced which can be a pain to do on certain set ups
