Gate valve on Black tank on SeaBreeze 1290
The gate valve is located on the curbside, therefore a long rod connects from the valve to the discharge pull handle. The connection from the rod to the gate valve is made using a L shaped connection as the rod does not line up with the valve rod by about 1&1/2". The Gate valve rod has pulled out of the plastic valve for the second time in a year.
Does anyone have a solution ?.
Valterra prefer the long rod to using a cable . I think perhaps the L shaped connection is still not giving a straight pull.
Can the valve be easily moved to line up with the long rod, however why did National not do this during manufacture.
Any thoughts or experiences please.
