Black Tank Valve Stuck

I have a 2012 Crossroads Cruiser Patriot edition fifth wheel. The black water tank valve is stuck in the open position. Can anyone please tell me how to access the valves to repair/replace them. The cable seems to be froze solid and won’t move in or out. They are enclosed somewhere under the bottom. Not sure if I can access from the storage compartment or if I have to go in from underneath.

Thanks,

Bill

You will have to access the valves from the bottom.

Simply unscrew a few screws along the frame that hold the coroplast on and pull down a bit. Use flashlight to see where the valve is then just cut the liner with a short blade, careful you dont cut wires laying on it. Find problem then gorilla tape it back .

Same thing happened to my 2013 Rushmore. I dropped the belly pan. Replaced with a solid steel cable. Adjusted the cable too close correctly. Reinstalled belly. Yes it was a all day job. But it now works so smooth.IMG_20160624_072720_128.jpg

I have the same problem and tomorrow I will be dropping the belly liner to see what parts I need.
I suspect it will be the entire actuator; handle/cable and gate. (Valterra Black 3" Valve TC372 Flexible Cable Kit-72" with 3" Valve)
Good Luck to You!!

IT IS A BRISTOL 3" NOT a Valterra.

It was a struggle buts it's out and a new Bristol is on the way. I sure hope it comes with new seals.

According to Etrailer, both brands are interchangeable.

Spreader needed

The LaSalle Bristol is on order BUT I am not sure that I can spread the fittings far enough apart to receive the new gate.
I am now thinking of cutting the 3" pipe and installing a repair coupling or a rubber boot with hose clamps( Fernco 1056-33 ).
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

If it's that close and tight, that rubber boot used as a coupler might be your only option.
Nothing will move or spread enough to give you a little slack huh?
