Black tank Pull Handle missing.

I have a blackrock 19b. Just came back from a trip and my black tank pull handle is missing? This is very tucked in so there is no way it got snagged on anything. Is this screwed in? Is it possible it rattled loose, and the solution is just to get a new one and screw it in?

Any insight is appreciated.

Usually there is a screw that holds the handle on. Simple replacement, take a piece of steel tubing about 4 inches long flatten the center using a few hammer blows, drill a hole and put it on the shaft. Add screw and your done.

My black tank pull handle came unscrewed on our first trip, had open up the undercover and reattach, this time with Lok Tite.

If you call ORV they may send you a new one.

mine spun loose, presumably from air flow around the handle. stopped at an RV store in transit and they had several lengths of handles. Must happen fairly frequently, not only with Outdoorsrv. I just unscrew it after I'm done and place it in the passthrough. Also bought a spare in case the grey water valve decides to do the same thing.

Same here with the grey handle on our fifth wheel. Had to screw it back on. Removed the first 3 feet of coroplast covering to get to it. Found out the cotterpin they used feel out.

Plus it was rubbing on the backflushing water line to the black tank and wore a hole in it that leaked when I backflushed the tank. Spliced in a piece and covered it with pvc pipe to prevent further issues.

Makes me wonder how fast they put these together!
