The short answer would be yes.
The correct answer weil be that you need to access the valve and see what happened.

just wondering when i saw the valve the set screw goes into that cylinder that opens and closes the valve.this summer i had both black tank valves changed i think they did thats what they said. anyway they was hard to pull out and push in thats why they changed them after looking at that cylinder there can you spray that cylinder with wd 40 to loosen it up would that help. just wondering.

Spray with a Silicon Lubricant, not WD40. I spray mine every spring.

I have used Gorilla Tape to seal mine after working in the belly.

Use a piece of 1x2 or similar and position it on the inside of the coroplast with half of it spanning the cut.
Then use a couple small screws to attach both sides of the slit.
Clean the surface with mineral spirits and use Gorilla tape or something similar to seal the cuts.

I think on that I've just been using the Silicon Spray from Walmart.

If the plunger doesn't move easily after spraying, the blade is having a hard time getting through the rubber seals inside the valve. You might try a combination of vegetable oil and Dawn detergent added through the toilet - maybe a cup of each. Let it sit for a few minutes. Spray the Silicon Spray into the sewer outlet - it may have to go a few feet, so be liberal. Put a bucket under the sewer outlet and exercise the pull handle rapidly to work the oil/Dawn/spray into the valve. Let us know the results.

Dave's suggestion on a piece of wood to hold things in place is a good one.
