Gray tank lever problem

Hi all,

I tried to close my gray tank and when I pushed the lever in to close it the entire lever except for the handle slides in to the sealed underbelly. Something must have broke inside the underbelly that held it in place and now I can't close the gray tank. Is this an easy fix or am I going to have to pay someone to fix it?

Thanks for your help.

If you're a bit handy, it might be a simple fix. The push rod is connected to a cable that slides in a sheathed cover. In order for the cable to slide in the sheath, the sheath must be clamped at it's start and at the end. Sounds like the clamp on the sheath is loose. If you can access the area, finding the extra movement should point to the loose clamp. If you're lucky, the clamp can simply be tightened. If not lucky, the clamp may be broken or loose and not able to be tightened. Good luck with it. If you do a Google search, you'll see how they operate.

its like the throttle cable on a lawn mower, at some point most likely

near the engine you'll find a clamp and bolt. you need to find that

on your cable.
