Drain Valve in Bathroom


Recommended Posts

Our valve does not move in & out smoothly; it is a bit difficult to manipulate it. I thought WD-40 sprayed on the metal rod would fix it. Steve said 'no', that it's the closey thingy. (my description, not his.)

Anyone have an idea on how to rectify or is this the way the valvey thingy works.

Thx

The closey thing is under the dinette seat nearest the bathroom.  The black tank closey thing is there too, closer to the outside of the trailer.  You can try some Vaseline on it.  The cable is short so I’m not sure it would be the issue.  Mike

If the issue is with a sticking gate valve, which is opened and closed by that metal rod, pour some of this down the drain, let it sit for a few minutes, then open and close the valve a few times. It's actually good to add to your black and gray tanks now and again to lube those gate valves as well.

Besides the lube that DavePhelps mentions make sure to take a look around that valve to make sure that it has room to operate freely.
