    Valterra Twist on Valve for your Dump Tank

    I use a Valterra T58 Twist on Valve for my dump tank at dump station. Once I get sewer hose elbow into dump station trap, I open gate valve. No more mess at dump station.

    You'll find many of us use that valve. It not only protects you from getting wet when you go dump it also works as a great equalizer if you have 2 gray tanks.

    They're useful... really should come as standard equipment on RVs.

    I can see tank equalization benefits..but..
    I've never had an issue on previous trailers without one of those. Is there something 'special' about the GD plumbing?

    Some GD trailers tend to drain slowly and not completely; having a substantial amount of liquid waiting for you upon the next visit. My previous trailers didn't have this problem.

    Besides what has already been said of the benefits of the Valterra valve, it can also be of help if you have a leaking or stuck open tank valve until you can address the problem.

    Looked for one last fall, and few available and at extremely high prices. The one linked to from etrailer is on backorder, so no idea when it will really ship. Camping World, much as I dislike buying from them, does have in stock to ship. End price, with shipping, is about $2 cheaper than etrailer.

    Did anyone have a problem with the Valtera valve being easy to come loose .
    How does it help exactly with two grey ranks vs one?

    With two grey tanks, typically the shower one gets full first. In the event you are not connected to a full hookup, you can open both gray tank valves (provided you have the Valtera gate valve on). This allows the water in the tanks to find level, or equalize. Make sure you know which gate valve you are buying. They sell the one which simply hooks up the same as the sewer line, and one which requires cutting the end off your sewer outlet and permanently mounting the valve. We have the bayonet one, but I leave it on. Some people put a small screw in the fitting to keep it from coming loose. I didn't do that and have had no issue yet.

    Some silicone II works great to attach semi permanently.
