Question LaPalma 2 bath Location of dump valves?

Hi Friends,
I have a 2005 La Palma with two baths. I cannot find the black or grey waste valves for the front bathroom and kitchen sink. I figure there has to be an access panel somewhere.
Any help will be appreciated.
Bruce

Did you find any of the dump valves?

There should be just 1 black and 1 gray waste dump valve to cover everything in the coach.

I had a 2007 Monaco LaPalma on a workhorse chassis. In the wet bay I had handles for 2 gray tanks and 2 black tanks. The handles were attached to cables which were attached to the valves. The valves were close to the tanks that they emptied.

Thanks for trying to help but there are actually 4 dump handles. I have located and repaired the rear valves which are exposed in the electrical cord basement compartment. The other two however are not found yet.

Thanks Brad and Bonnie. The rear valves are in the electrical cord compartment and are exposed. I have repaired them. The front valves are hidden somewhere. I believe you are right that must be near the tanks but I have not located them. I assume there must be an access panel somewhere.
Deb and I are going back out today to search but I hate to open up too much if I don't have to.
Following the cable means tearing out insulation foam and would rather not do that either.
Thanks Again,
Bruce and Deb

On my 2007 Monaco LaPalma workhorse chassis, the gray tank valve for the kitchen was behind the passenger side dual tires. It required removal of the wheels to work on it. The 2nd bath valve was located near the driver side dual tires. Again not an easy location to work in. Good luck.

Thanks Bf, this was the key. The passenger side compartment behind the rear wheels had an access panel (hidden behind our gear). When removed the front grey water valve is there. Also about three feet further toward the other side is the front black tank valve. Right behind that is the wet bay.
Thank you everyone for your help. It is very good to finally find these valves.🙌

Waste Valve Stumbling Block

I just want to post this in case it helps anybody.
As we researched working on the valves all the videos said it was soooo easy.
You just had to use the correct seals and you could rebuild your valves.
You had to know if you had Valterra valves if you had the Bladex version.
We bought the wrong seals which were VERY difficult to install plus they didn't work. Duh!

The reason we bought the wrong seals because on the cable actuated valves there is NO marking on the outside shroud which attaches to the cable. If you take that part off which is not hard to do you will see the actual valve body which in our case identified the valve as Bladex.

It is also quite easy to install this shroud after the valve is in place between the pipes.
I hope others don't have to learn this lesson the hard way like we did.
Bruce

Hi
We have two sets of valves (4 tanks) but this may help. There is one black and one grey water valve up and behind the wet bay. I could not reach them from the web bay located on the drivers side unless the entire wet bay panel was removed which we did not do. Directly across from the wet bay on the passenger side is the battery compartment which is divided into 2 sections. The section without the batteries has a small access panel made of tin which can be removed out of the way by taking out a few screws. I gained access to the valves from this side (I am skinny). I could only get my body part way in my raising my arms above my head but it worked.
I hope this helps.
Bruce
