Valterra RV Waste Valves - Double Cable Valve Sewer Elbow - VAL45FJ Review


Hi, there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Double RV Waste Valve Elbow. This is gonna combine your 1 1/2 inch gray water tank waste valve, and your three-inch black water tank waste valve, merge that flow of waste to one sewer line. So this can be used as a replacement part for a similar item or as an upgrade for your existing setup. One of the main features of this unit is that it's going to give you these cable-controlled valves.

So it's gonna offer a remote activation for those inconvenient and hard to reach locations. So once we hook our cable up to this little rod here, it's going to allow us to open and close that valve so we can determine which tank we're wanting to empty, like so. So very easy to use. Now those cables are sold separately. We do have several different options available for you here at etrailer.com.

It really just depends on the length that you need. So if you need a 72-inch, we've got that part number on the screen there, a 96-inch and a 120-inch, all available here at etrailer.com. So it just depends on how much distance you're needing to cover with that cable, but it should be very easy to get this set up once you have the right cable. So you wanna make sure that you're ordering that when you're getting this. This can be installed in just about any angle.

You do obviously wanna make sure that gravity is going to be working with you rather than against you, to get that waste flowing out. These control valves are gonna be able to rotate 100 or 360 degrees. So you can set them up in whatever orientation is gonna work best for you, so that you can get everything flowing in the right direction. So to get this installed, it's gonna be very, very simple. Your three-inch hub here is gonna slide over your RV's black water line.

Your 1 1/2 inch hub will slide over your gray water line. You have this two-inch hub up here at the top. It's gonna slide over your sewer pipe. And then your three-inch spigot here is gonna slide into your separate sewer lines. So very easy to get all that put together. This is constructed of a black ABS plastic. So it is gonna be very, very durable for you. If you don't already have some, I would recommend picking up some ABS solvent cement to seal all those connections, make sure that you're not gonna have any unpleasant leaks. But overall, really nice option here, especially for those of you who do need a little bit more remote access to your openings here. Being able to control those cables is gonna make it much easier for you. So that's gonna complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
