HWH Shuttle Valve problems

I'm having problems replacing the shuttle valve on the HWH levelers on my 1994 Newmar Kountry Air. The old valve came out OK, but when I tried to install the new one it wouldn't go in past the top o-ring.

The one I removed is identical to the new one except the top o-ring was pretty chewed up. Any one have any ideas on how to get the valve in?

Thanks

Poppy

I had the same problem - just had to push real hard until the first thread caught.

tap on it a bit, that will force it lower in the opening. the threads often ruin the o rings when removed

If you havent done so, put some hydraulic fluid on the o rings, it will help the valve slide in easier.

Thanks, everyone. I put a couple washers on top of the valve so I could push down with a socket wrench...it went right in and all is well!
