Replacing electronic drain gates...

Has anyone done this. I have blown motors on two of my three gates (luckily the one that didn't blow is the sewage )

Looking for the parts as we speak. So far i have found the whole system but not the parts. But it's not super pricey.

Anyway- it got me thinking. Given that the RV is only 2005 and two motors already blew- should I simply replace the electronic gates with manual gates. Is this possible? Has anyone done it before?

I was thinking this might be more cost effective and prevent similar problems.

I would go to manual valves myself.

If you can reach the gate valves to operate them I'd go with manual. They are cheaper and more trouble free.
