Thanx Ron!! It DID pop out but not without some effort. I slightly damaged the housing and now the valve leaks a bit but at least it turns freely. Any idea what I could use to increase friction and tighten the spigot a bit? I could jerry-rig something but sure hate to further damage the housing.

Thanks again!

The handle on my outside water drain valve has broken. I purchased a replacement from AMAZON (4 bucks!). I am able to remove the two screws holding the plastic valve against the MH body BUT I can't figure out how to get at the C clamp that keeps the current valve from leaking. There is absolutely no play in the hose and that clamp has to be removed. How can I get at that plastic hose from the inside. Is there a cover underneath the mattress box that will allow access?

tks in advance!

Update: talked to tech at Barker. I also pulled the schematic from their site. Tech AND schematic states that you have to detach the unit from the value itself and THEN manually open the valve. I did that (Why do they make it so difficult to remove two stupid screws!!) and opened the valve manually. I know have an empty BLACK tank (good!!) but still have a valve that will not open electrically. Either the gear on the barker valve opener is busted OR I have an electrical problem. I am going to winterize my unit and leave the electrical/valve problem for another day.

BTW -- The valve on the GREY side works fine AND can be opened manually without removing the Barker housing.

Thanks for all the help!

We own a 2008, Model 2900 PC. The BLACK valve on my Sani Con unit would not engage. GREY side worked fine and I was able to use macerator to dump that side. I tried dumping the BLACK side manually but that valve appears stuck shut (dirt, dust no doubt). I pulled and check every fuse that I could find in unit to see if that might be preventing the BLACK switch from working but no blown fuses noted. I am stuck!!

Suggestions before we take the unit in to a dealer tomorrow? Is there a relay somewhere that has "flipped" or a fuse in an unusual location?

I am considering upgrading the backup camera on my 2008, 2900 PC. I am intrigued by the units that have "distance" indicators on the cab viewer. Has anyone ever owned a unit with that feature AND is it worth the upgrade?

The bedroom drawers on my 2900 are a bit tight. What sort of lubricate would be safe to use on the bearing wheels? Silicone??

I cracked a slide on one of the Bedroom closet drawers on my 29 foot, 2900 unit. Any chance I can find a replacement? After-market would be fine.

Thanks! I will check household circuit before attempting electric use. It is an old farmhouse so breaker might flip.
