    due to a rear wheel tyre blowout the T piece handle [about 12" long ]that controls the waste water dump valve was lost on the motorway. does anyone know if there is anywhere that stocks them? it seems they are fitted to a number of german vans that have a 40mm dump valve but i can only find complete [ultradrain i think they are called] valve and pipe units at about £60 plus . cheers garry

    CAK tanks in Kenilworth used to list them. I think it is a complete unit.

    You may well have to replace the complete unit. I've only seen them complete.
    CAK Tanks have them. Page 18 Here.
    Also Leisure Shop Direct.

    A popular option it seems is to just leave the valve open :rolleyes:

    how is the handle fitted, on a square, a spline or what, given dimensions I could probably knock something up. PM me a drawing.

    Have you tried the American motorhome spares places---it is almost certainly the same as grey/black tank handles.
