Black tank valve

We have a 28rl sunset that is a 2012, our black water tank valve leaks. While going down the road the handle works it's way out causing waste to escape to where the hose connects. When you take the cap off to connect your hose you are standing in waste. We have had it back to camping world for repairs but can't seem to get it repaired. Now when you walk into the camper it stinks. Any ideas? Anyone else had similar problem. Wife is very unhappy. They say they have replaced the valve..I am not sure that I believe them.

Not sure of how the 28RL is set up, but my valve is 8-10 feet back from the actual discharge fitting (where you attached the drain hose). I installed a secondary valve at the hose connection as a safety valve just for that reason. That would be the easiest fix. The other thing you could do is replace/repair the valve that is leaking (again?).

This would allow you to have a second valve just twists on like the cap.

I carry a 2 gallon bucket that I put below the valve when I take the cap off. I get some discharge but at least it goes into the bucket instead of on the ground until I can connect.
With long gloves on it doesn't seem to be much of an issue.
Nothing worse then waiting in a dump line and watching goober cover the drain area, knowing you're next!

Never had that problem with any of our other campers, so I kind of went brain dead with solutions . I really like these ideas. I am taking camper back on weds to have the front nose piece replaced, not only has it faded but stress cracks in the fiberglass. Crossroads is covering the whole thing parts and labor. My wife said if they can't fix a valve how can they do this project.

Twist on valve is the only way to go! I tried the bucket thing and still got tired of getting waste on my hands. Best thing I ever did
