Just changed the valve on my black tank. It was a pretty easy job. I noticed the old valve started to pull very hard to open , but easy to close. When I got the old valve out the problem was obvious. The rubber gasket was being pulled while opening buy the valve. New gaskets was probably all it needed. New one works great and I would hate to think of one breaking while tank is full. That would be a bad day!

I installed a replacement valve kit on my black tank because the handle was so hard to pull and 7 yrs old. Now the handle is easy to pull but the valve leaks. On the road now but when I get home that will one of things on my to do list.

Before installing the valve I went to my local hardware plumbing dept and bought silcone grease. That stuff worked real well holding the rubber seals in place, plus I think it will keep those seals lubed for some time.
