Just now saying hello & help

I joined quite a few years back never posted and I am needing help. First I will give a gracious Southern hello. Our camper is a 1989 Newmar Kountry Star 5ver. 37 foot long and weighs about 12.5 K. Owned it around 4-5 years now and really enjoyed what little we get to use it.
While on this page I would like to ask where I should post questions about a black/grey water valve problem? Bottom appears to be completely sealed. No access.
Profile to come.
Thanks From South east Alabama.

Beauregard, welcome back to our website and forums. We are glad to have you become an active participant. I would recommend that this type of issue be placed in the Newmar Owners forum as it is a more specific type question for your unit but other units are of similar design.
By the way, you will have to access the valves by dropping the belly. Once you know exactly where the valves are located and while you have the belly down, you could install some framing to attach an access door for future needs. Good luck and keep us posted.

RV Wizard, sounds like my kind of user name. I like that.
I have an electrical degree from Southern Union Jr. College. Been working in drinking water for 30 nearly years and love it. I do both Maint and plant operations. Heck yes I'm certified top level. A true "Jack of all trades"
Married 18 years to a wonderful lady, very stable and still prefers a tent to a coach. I never could figure that out.
I'm 49 y/o and am looking forward to retirement. I intend on purchasing a used diesel pusher in a few years and living on the road from April-Sept. Both my wife and I are serious white-tail hunters.Any way I like to cut up and joke around in a positive way. Keep it respectful.

Good morning Beauregard and welcome to irv2.
Some 5th wheels have a panel under the belly of coach that will gain access to your valves with a lone rod to operate the gate valve. Some had had to replace gate valve and you will have to remove four bolts that holds gate valve together.
Once the bolts are removed you may only have to place in new gate valve with the new washers than bolt up assembly with new bolts. The original bolts should be clean because they were protected from elements so maybe good to use.
Anymore questions come join us down in Newmar forum and some good people there to help you.

Glad to have you join us. With the 89 you can officially call your self a Vintage RV Owner and have the group added under your name.

As suggested, once you find the location of the valves, make yourself a removable access panel.
