Low waste water valves

Has anybody reconfigured the waste water drain pipes to raise these valves? I know why they are low, just would rather raise them somehow. Any recommendations?

Yeah, that's what I have been dealing with for 19 yrs with my past 2 trailers. I hate to say it as I just bite the bullet on this one. And yes their have been a few trips where i had problems with sewage pitch because of this. I have used lumber planks along with those plastic folding slinky sewer hose kits and both have helped, most of the times but not all.

Good luck
Sorry not much help here

Edit: I have read there are kits out in the market that can raise your trailer or service shops that can do it for you maybe you can look in that direction.

Looks like you might can fabricobble different brackets and raise it some, at least up to the bottom of that frame rail. You will probably need to cut the DWV pipe to adjust it as well.

Ive seen drains like that and always wondered what they are thinking when they do that.

Morning, I just joined and am picking up my new (used) hybrid this morning. I saw this concern when looking at the camper and how it will do backing into my driveway. There is a little dip and am concerned about bottoming out on the drain/sewer pipe before the tire starts the lift. Guess I'll find out. May have to board it.
