    Valve handles

    The valve handles on the gray tanks are getting more and more difficult to open and close. The black tank handle pulls easily.

    I used some spray lubricant but it does not help.

    Any suggestions?

    I had a problem several years ago when one of the grey water valves would not close. The dealer ask me to bring it in and the mechanic told me that the valve works like the old engine idle/speed cable on the older push type lawnmowers. The cable has to slide in a sleeve that should be attached to the frame just the other side of the handle. He advised that sometimes these sleeves detach from their mounts and then just slide with the cable. Since he repaired mine, I've not had any problems since. Hope this helps.
