99 Holiday Rambler - Vacationer - Tank valve brand

Can anyone with a 1998-2000 Holiday Rambler confirm the brand of gray/black water tank valves? Ours are leaking... The fix is obviously replacing the seals.

Holiday Rambler (Monico) has a part number for the 3" valve at about $30, but I hate to go that route for 2 seals...

I believe tank valves are Valtera brand, but they're pretty hard to see.. So I'm hoping someone can confirm before I take it apart and get stuck having to put it back together due to incorrect seals.

I'm planning on buying the following seals:
Valve Seal Kit - Bladex - 3"

If anyone thinks that there is a reason to replace the entire valve, I'd do that - but again, I don't have a good grasp on the extension setup, so I'd probably order the $30 valve from Monico.

This is about all I can see of the valve:

Yep, looks like the Valtera's we have in ours. Access, or the lack of, is a real good reason to replace the valve instead of installing new seals in an old valve. You have to pull the valve anyway, why take the chance on a valve that could have a little too much wear in it? YMMV, plus I'm on the lazy side. I like doing jobs only once. Bob

I'd be inclined to agree with you, 'cept I didn't understand the setup of the handle extension and how it's attached to the valve. If I understand the install right, you have to deal with the valve seals anyway.
