Drain Master RV Waste Dump Valve for Hard-to-Reach Valves
I knew when we bought our new fifth wheel that I would eventually have to do something about the holding tank plumbing. The Drain Master RV waste dump valve was the key part of the holding tank drain system makeover.
Our Coachmen fifth wheel bunkhouse floor plan was designed with two toilets, one up front and one in the rear. Apparently Coachmen couldn’t figure out how or didn’t want to spend the extra money to plumb the two together and instead we had to have two sewer hoses going into a ‘Y’ fitting at the sewer hookup. It was a real hassle and required carrying an extra twenty feet of hose which was difficult to stow.
Even worse, to connect a sewer hose or operate the valve on the front holding tank we had to get on hands and knees and crawl under the trailer to reach it! That wouldn’t be fun for a young person but for a couple of old folks it was literally a pain. We had to live with it for about six months.
Installing the Drain Master RV waste dump valve was the easiest part of the whole project. If you have a hard to reach valve… even if it’s not as bad as mine was… you may want to consider replacing it with a Drain Master. If you are just a little handy, you can do it yourself. Phase Four Industries’ Drain Master kit has all you need to replace an existing manual valve and the instructions are complete, accurate and easy to follow. No special tools required.
