Replacement of Water Fill plastic handle

Turns out, I canít put any water in my onboard tank. The little black lever switch does not grip the square shaft of the valve tight enough to turn it. Looking at the black plastic lever. The sides that are supposed to be flat are blown out. So instead of a square hole, it was s rounded. Has anybody found a replacement hopefully metal. I really donít want to replace the whole valve of I can avoid it.

Thank in advance for the help!

I haven't found a replacement for mine either, but with a pair of pliers I can still turn the valve so that I can fill the tank when needed.

It ainít pretty, but it works. A doner handle from a 3/4 inch ball valve, some grinding, and judicious amounts of JB Weld and it fits. I had to use a couple nuts and washers as spacers. Iím not sure how long it will hold up, but looking at the backside of the box that valve is installed in, it is a major project to replace that valve. Tight quarters, PEX lines and crimped band clamps, make my jury rig look even better.
