My 2000 Adventurer's blackwater tank valve will not shut all the way. It has always leaked a bit, but now it seems to be jammed open. Anyone out there have experience removing and replacing the dump/gate valve? It looks easy except for getting to the valve. It looks like I will be forced to remove the outdoor water & shower service console (and all the piping to it) just to get to the vavle. Also, does the valve and valve track just need to be cleaned or should I replace it. Are parts a problem? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Most of the time it is faster and better to just replace the dump valve. The standard dump valve should have 4 bolts to remove then slide the valve out then slide the new one in and replace the 4 bolts. They sell them at any RV parts store for around $15.

Good luck

Make sure all the old rubber gaskets are off and the new ones in place. I usually put vaseline on the new ones to hold them in place.
