Grey tank hand valve

If gray water is leaking into the hose when the valve is closed, raise the street side bed access hatch nearest the pantry and you will see the gray water valve.  Push the silver cylinder at the end of the cable as far down as you can.  That should solve the leaking.

It is probably time to remove the cable from the outside and clean and lubricate it.  It’s not difficult, loosen the screw on top of the gray water gate (under the street side bed), then pull it out from the outside.  Clean and lubricate the cable then stick it back in and push it until it reaches the gate inside.  While the outside handle is in the closed position, re-tighten the screw on the cable inside.  That’s really all there is to it.  I’ve done mine (and the black tank gate cable) twice in 7 years and it works fine.  Mike

If it's not the cable, it could be the valve itself. Our last trailer had a tank valve where the seals were very tight against the gate, making it hard to operate. Adding some RV tank valve lubricant every spring solved the issue. You just pour some into the tank before a trip.Thetford RV Drain Valve Lubricant... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BGK2L0?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

Mike: Would RED LINE CV-2 work well for this?

I’m not an expert, but I would certainly use it.  A light coat of any quality grease seems to last a long time.  Mike
