Do the rest of your water valve "levers" look like the one pictured in the upper right hand corner?

Here is one with a similar lever.

At this point (Sunday evening), I'd call Oliver Service first thing in the morning (Monday) and see if they could tell you:

1.  how that lever attaches to the valve stem

2.  how soon they can get a replacement lever and/or valve to you.

Good luck!

If it has fallen off, you still might be able to turn the shaft, what does it look like? Could you use an adjustable wrench? Whichever way it will move, turn it all the way until it stops.

Still haven't been able to hook up with Oliver about valve lever but have order a new valve on amazon made by JR to replace, this brings up a question, what plumbing parts would you bring with you for breaks on the road

A couple of three foot sections of pex pipe and an assortment of "Sharkbite" fittings - 90 degree, straight.

There is a thread here on the Forum where this is covered in some detail where opinions ranging from extra fittings to extra water pumps is covered.
