Video Transcript for Valterra RV Sewer T1046-12VP Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Valterra waste valve extension rod kit. Now handle extensions are going to be a great way to extend the handle positioning on your RV's waste system to make things more accessible and easier to handle. These are going to be aluminum extension tubes. They can adjust up to 2". It's going to include the two most common extension sizes. You're going to have a 9" and 6", and the 6" can simply adjust up to 8".

It's got an internal threaded rod, so this potion is 6" long and then you have another 2" of adjustment. This one right here is 9" long and has up to 2" of adjustment with the internal threaded rod, so it can go up to 11". These handles are going to attach to the threaded stud. The handle is included, so basically the threaded stud is this potion here. It threads on. You can put it all the way down for the 9" extension, or you can turn it counter-clockwise and extend it.

Once you have the desired length, just tighten up that nut right there to kind of lock that into place. It's a really nice design. They're very easy to use, very easy to adjust. It's also going to come with the included and optional mounting bracket. That is there if you want to use that as well. That's going to do it for today's look at the Valterra waste valve extension rod kit.

We had to do some measuring to get the right one but this Adjustable Rod Kit for Valterra Waste Valve was a perfect replacement for the one that went missing on a 1000 mile journey home.
It was easy to order from etrailer & saved us from having to run everywhere find this. etrailer shipped it to us fast & we got it installed pronto. Thanks etrailer!



The Valterra Waste Valve Extension Rod Kit is working out great. It is still attached to our RV, although we did use Locktite when installing it.

@Marilyn We're glad it's still working well for you!


The valve handle extension set arrived very timely and was of better quality than expected! I initially just needed to replace a broken pull/push handle, but when I saw there was a valve handle extension set available, I decided to upgrade my current situation and bring my valve handles out closer to the edge of the trailer thereby making it easier for me to reach them. Installation was a breeze and the new location of the gray & black water valve handles is much more convenient and easier to reach. The adjustable feature of the extension also helped to dial the length in to just the right location!


Normally I might give a 3 or 4 star review although this product solved a somewhat unusual situation. The handle that went missing vibrated off and bounced off the wheel well and in to the tire causing a blowout and damage to the under belly of the trailer. The RV repair shop fixed the damage and replaced the valve handle. The next RV trip we took the handle once again vibrated off luckily missing the tire etc. This product hopefully solved the problem. I took the threaded stud and nut off the long extension and put it on the other end of the short extension and attached the handle. The valve shaft is threaded and has a threaded coupler style nut so I was able to thread the short extension rod in to the threaded coupler. Since there is locking nut on both ends of the new extension, along with some Loctite, everything should stay as is. A five star fix.


We used these on our old RV and when we got our new one, this was one of the first things we ordered as having these extensions make using the dump much easier than having to get down on your knees and reach for the pulls for the Black Water and Gray Water.


Item arrived in a timely manner and was exactly as described prior to buying. The Extension Rod Kit replaced my existing plumbing on my 2011 Montana Mountaineer without incident.


Just what I needed, the dump valve handles were under the camper side and recessed about 8 inches. Now I can pull dump levers without getting on my knees.


Just what I needed to replace the broken waste valve rod. I like that it is adjustable and has a guide to help prevent future breakage. Order arrived as promised.


Extension rods work as expected.


My item arrived as scheduled with no issues. I need to replace my black tank waste valve and the price was very competitive to other companies.


When an order concerns sewer parts
it can be a very important order. Your service was amazing! Thank you. You have earned a new loyal customer. Great price, great delivery and an easy web ordering system.

It's nice when something goes so easily and smoothly.

Russ Ranger


Excellent service from start to follow up finish, etrailer is now book marked for my rv needs, fast, courteous and such an easy website to navigate! Thank you etrailer!


Delivery was super-fast, well packed, and items were in excellant condition when received. I have not installed the parts to date thus I can't speak to fit, but, suspect that is not an issue.


Always a pleasure to do business with etrailer. Got exactly what I ordered and got it on time!


Easy installation. Good online experie nce


The products were first class and installation was a snap.


This was exactly what we needed to readily get to the camper gray and black water lines. Our camper just needed a inch or two more to make it easier to release these lines. Really glad you had these. Thank you.


No problem with the quality of the products but the wait time was ridiculous...took about six weeks to deliver...


Ronald C.

Works as intended.


It's everything I expected it to be.

  • Can Extension Rods in Valterra Waste Valve Extension Rod Kit be Attached to Each Other
    I went out to the warehouse to look at the two extension tubes included in the Valterra Waste Valve Extension Rod Kit # T1046-12VP referenced in your question. The rods are threaded all the way through on the inside, so while they were not designed specifically for this purpose, the two rods can technically be attached to each other to provide an even longer extension. Also keep in mind that each of the included rods can be extended up to 2 inches, meaning the 9 inch rod can extend to...

  • Are the Valve Extension Tubes Pre Threaded on Valterra Waste Valve Extension Rod Kit # T1046-12VP?
    Yes, as you can see in the included image the extension tubes are pre-threaded on the Valterra Waste Valve Extension Rod Kit # T1046-12VP. I have linked the above mentioned product to this page for your convenience.

  • How to Install the Valterra Waste Valve Extension Rod Kit T1046-12VP
    You do not have to remove the valve shaft on your waste gate valve to install the extension # T1046-12VP. The instructions for this part are as follows: Unscrew the handle while holding valve shaft with cloth between a pair of pliers and the shaft. Attach the extension tubes by simply threading them onto the valve shaft. To adjust up to 2 inches longer, loosen locknut and unscrew stud counter clockwise until desired length is reached. Then retighten locknut.

  • Extension Rod Kit For Black Water Tank Handle Behind Pipes
    I am not familiar with the black water tank in the 2008 Springdale Fifth wheel trailer however, the two adjustable rods in the Extension Rod Kit for Valterra Waste Valve part # T1046-12VP should make it easier to access the handle. One of the rods extend from 6 to 8 inches while the other can extend from 9 to 11 inches.

  • How Do I Replace A Handle On My Valterra Waste Valve
    I spoke to a Valterra representative and I was told that they do not offer a sleeve to slide over the two shafts to join them together. If the male thread has broken in the handle, and the coupler is still in working order, you may be able to use Extension Rod Kit for Valterra Waste Valve - Adjustable - 6" to 8" and 9" to 11", part # T1046-12VP. The extension rod and mounting bracket would attach to the coupler of the waste valve. If the coupler is not intact you will have to replace the...

  • Recommended Waste Valve Extension Rod for RV Black Water Valve
    On a waste valve, the handle is right to tighten and left to loosen. We have extension tubes with handles like the Valterra Waste Valve Extension Tube with Handle - 9" # TX9HPB in different lengths that allow you to open and close a threaded valve from a distance. I've attached a link to assist with your options and also linked a video of the Extension Rod Kit for Valterra Waste Valve - Adjustable - 6" to 8" and 9" to 11" # T1046-12VP. We also have the pin type valves and cables for...

  • Will the Valterra Extension Rod Kit # T1046-12VP Fit a Plymouth Waste Valve
    I am not sure if the Extension Rod Kit # T1046-12VP will be compatible with your current system but I did go out to the warehouse and measured the outside and inside diameter of the rod with a digital caliper and found those to be 0.30" and 0.20" respectively. If your current rod has these dimensions then it is possible it will work.

  • Waste Valves to Replace Those With Rods That Are Falling Off
    If your waste valve handles and rods are falling off you are going to need to replace your waste valves. I have added a link to our entire selection of waste valves so you can find the exact replacement you need, based on the connection you need. I also recommend considering an electric valve such as the Valterra EZ Valve Electric Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Diameter # E1003VP to mitigate this type of issue. I have added a link to a video review of this valve for you to...

  • Replacement Valterra Valve Handle
    Sounds like you are looking for a Valterra replacement extension rod like the part # T1046-12VP which is for between 6 and 11 inches or the part # TX36HPB which is 36 inches. To see all of the replacement handles we offer for Valterra valves check out the link I attached.

  • Extension Handles for Valterra Waste Valves
    The best option for you to use the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve part # T40B would be to add the Extension Rod part # T1046-12VP for 6" - 11" or part # TX36HPB for 36". I cannot confirm that the handle on your Thetford valve will work with the handle on the Valterra valve. If the grey water tank on your RV has 1-1/2" diameter piping then you can use the Valterra Waste Valve part # T1001B instead.

  • How Does Valterra Waste Valve Extension Tube Install?
    The Valterra Waste Valve Extension Tube # TX9HPB installs by simply threading onto the valve shaft as you can see in the accompanying photo; it replaces your current handle so that 9 inch measurement would be from the top of the valve shaft. There are slightly shorter ones you can get, the # TX8HPB, which is an 8" extension, or the # T1046-12VP, which is a kit that has a pair of adjustable rods, including one that can be as short as 6". I've added links to video reviews of both parts...

    Yes, the Camco RV Wastewater Tank Replacement Valve # CAM39513 is threaded. Another option is the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve # T1003VP, which like the Camco is a manual single waste valve with a 3" diameter.
