Adjusting Black/Grey valves

We have a 2020 Verona and recently had to have the gasket replaced on the grey gate valve. We had water passing by, and it was dripping out of the cap which is what caused us to look at this to begin with. After having it looked at by a vendor chosen by Renegade they discovered it had a small crease on the edge of the seal so they replaced it. Well 2 weeks later we go out and I had the hose hooked up inside and had a cap on the end of the hose and noticed the hose was filled with grey water. It has now been doing this for a few weeks now.

Today I discovered that when I push the handle in the close the valve and I go over the the gate valve I can actually push the little aluminum round piece at the end of the cable in about 1/8" further. After doing this it seems to have fixed the issue of water passing by. I just don't know how to adjust the cable so I don't have to push it in the rest of the way in by hand each time.

I am sure this is something really simple but I am new to this so forgive me for asking such a silly question if there is such a thing.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

THAT is the issue with cable operated dump valves.
They don't always fully close....cable actually bends when resistance from seals etc occurs
Especially if the cable has to curve to get to valve vs straight on

I don't have one/
I gave up on my cable operated dump valves by adding an extra shaft operated dump valve on horizontal run of common drain header.
It is easy to operate due to straight short shaft and no more surprises at end cap

There is a little set screw at the valve that lets you adjust the cable and valve position. I had same problem and renegade fixed and showed me how to do it in case it happened again.

Ok I will take a look at it when I get back to it later this week. Hopefully I can figure it out. As long as I can remember to push it back in it is no issue but who wants to deal with that in the first place.

Thanks for the help with this I appreciate it.
