Video Transcript for Valterra RV Sewer - Waste Valves - T40 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Valterra RV waste valve. It has the 3-inch hub side and a 3-inch spigot side. This is made of a durable, hard plastic construction. This waste valve will replace a broken or warn out one on your RV's black water tank. It is used to stop or allow the flow from the tank. You notice when you open it, it has a 3-inch diameter passage which will allow waste to travel freely when it's open.

When you do close it, there are seals in there, which will tightly seal off the black water pipes when it's closed. The 3-inch waste valve body, which is this whole section right here, with the handle on it, is a Bladex design. It is used to open or close the tube opening on the waste valve. The valve body itself, you can see when you open it, has a nice metal shaft with the plastic handle. If you notice the plastic handle is color-coated black also to let you know it's for the black water tank. I just want to give you a few internal dimensions here.

On the hub side, the internal dimension is going to be right at 3 1/2 inches, and on the spigot side, internal is going to be right at 3 inches. That should do it for the review on the Valterra RV waste valve, the 3-inch hub side and the 3-inch spigot side.

Working perfectly. I combined my gray and black water dump systems into one drain port. See before and after photos.




by:

The OE gate had a long cable that was a problem from day one, I installed the gate near the exit of the system and am happy with the valve I have now it's got a positive close position with no leakage, I didn't remover the cable gate just left it open. I didn't have to use the termination adapter. I'm happy now. Thanks




by:

This valve saved me from having to crawl up under my trailer and pull the PVC plumbing apart to replace the Thetford valve on the black water tank. The in-line valve would not seal/close completely. That meant when I pulled the cap off my drain to empty the tanks there was 'stuff' there waiting to spill out.
I took that cap off and replaced it with this valve and it solved my issue for 6 months until I was ready for service. It stayed in place and did not leak.




by:

Great product. Installation went good. Did it on a 7 year old trailer. My suggestion is for anyone that feels a drag starting with their valve and feel it will need replacement, to start by taking your time to remove the bolts carefully and replace them with stainless steel bolts. Once you get past the bolts froze in, valve replacement is a breeze.




by:

First I have to comment on the customer service from Lisa D. She is the best, not 5 stars, but 7! She went to great lengths helping me find a solution to a particular need. I bought this Valterra RV valve to divert water between tanks in a rain water harvest system. It is smaller, lighter and easier to use than ball valves, etc. The product is good quality and very economical. The product is just what I needed, the shipping was fast and the customer service outstanding. I would highly recommend Etrailer.




by:

The dump valve arrived today. I have not installed it yet, but it looks like it is built very well. A high quality part, not cheap looking. It should install easy and last longer than the fifth wheel.




by:

Bought 3 of these to use as slide gates on the bottom of grain chutes in our barn. They weren’t quite as heavy duty as we hoped but probably fine for the price. All 3 are still working but the handle has broken on one of them.




by:

We were having trouble getting the black water closed because the chain link that opened the drain was just not working. We called around about getting it fixed and after we heard how much it would cost decided to fix it ourselves. We found your product and bought it and my husband fixed the drain pipe yesterday. I'm happy to say it worked great and it was not too hard to install.




by:

Way better valve construction than the old style Valterra valve




by:

Great service on questions about my order. Sale dept contracted me that my order could not be shipped due to the manufacturer was behind in my part number. Sales/service was able to supply me with a similar part number and was able to ship it out right away. Sales /service told me it would be 7 to 10 days before I would receive it. I received it in 3 days. Thank you sales/service for a great job and for being so helpful in getting me my order so quickly. Pete E.

  • Replacement Waste Valve for Black Water Tank
    Based on your picture (they did make it through) it does appear that the Valterra waste valve # T40 is the correct part for you if it requires a 3 inch. The other common size is 1-1/2 inch but yours looks larger than that. I have linked a video review of this valve for you.

  • Determining the Correct Waste Valve on RV
    I appreciate the photos but I"m not quite sure what you have under there in regards to pipe diameter. The black water tank valve will depend on if it is a hub connection, spigot connection and the diameter. For example, the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Spigot to 3" Spigot # T40A fits inside a 3" diameter pipe while the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Hub to 3" Hub # T40B will fit over a 3" diameter pipe. Essentially, spigot means...

  • Which Valterra Bladex Waste Valve Will Fit Schedule 40 PVC Pipe 3 inch Diameter
    Schedule 40, 3 inch PVC pipe has an outer diameter of 3.5 inches and an inner diameter of 3 inches. The Valterra Bladex Waste Valve # T40B you referenced is designed to fit OVER a 3 inch diameter pipe so what you'd need is the spigot version to fit into your 3 inch pipe like # T40A.

    We can offer steps on how to determine the correct black tank valve, though unfortunately isn't a way for us to know the exact valve that is on your Montana 5th wheel.

  • What is Difference Between RV Waste Valves Hubs and Spigots
    The difference between hubs and spigots in terms of RV waste valves like the part # T40A is that hubs fit over pipes and spigots fit into them instead. So it really comes down to if you have a preference but the # T40A is a spigot on both sides.

  • How To Shorten a Valterra Sewer Handle Rod
    You have a sewer extension rod installed on your valve that is longer than you like. Therefore, all you really need to do is remove the extension and replace it with one that better matches your needs from the list below. The extensions come in a few different lengths but regardless you can look over your rod to see where the break is, hold one end with a pair of pliers, then use another pair to remove the section. It could be multiple or one long one.

  • Connecting Valterra Bladex Waste Valve to 3 Inch PVC Pipe
    The inside diameter of each side of the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve # T40A is 3 inches with the outside diameter being 3-1/2 inches. This is the same as your 3 inch PVC pipe. You wouldn't be able to connect the PVC pipe directly to the valve, but could with connectors that have an inner diameter of 3-1/2 inches.

  • Replacement Valterra Waste Valve 601607-11 For Airstream Trailer
    The Valterra Bladex Waste Valve Body for RV Black Water Tank part # T1003VP will replace the valve but the part that you have now has a 3" spigot hub on both sides. This valve would require some modifying to fit into the same place as your old valve because you would have a gap. Therefore I recommend Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank part # T40 which is a 3" hub to 3" hub spigot like you need. That is the reason the Valterra Bladex Valve part # T1003VP is listed differently....

  • Which Valterra Waste Valve Replacement Recommendations
    For the 3 inch valve you would want the part # T40. For a 1-1/2 inch valve you would need the # T1001VPM. This will be much easier than trying to rebuild your current ones.

  • Replacement Black Water Tank Valve For 3" Tank Pipe
    It depends on your connection with the pipe if you need a spigot to spigot or hub to hub valve. A hub connection is the female connection that accepts a spigot. The spigot is a male connection. If your existing valve slides into the 3" pipe then you need the spigot connection. The Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Spigot to 3" Spigot part # T40A is designed to slide into 2 separate 3" sewer pipes which sounds like what you have.

If you needed the entire valve assembly you'd want the part # T40A instead. This comes with a spigot fitting on either end of the valve.

    It sounds like you're looking a for a new valve assembly for your black water tank. For a black water waste valve for a standard 3-inch diameter twist-on bayonet/lug fitting you can use Valterra part # T58. If your RV instead has a straight sewer pipe you can use the slide-on Valterra valve # T50. This item must be glued on using Valterra ABS cement # A05-0303.

    You can do that, however the mounting holes on # T1005 are a bit too close together, and won't properly mount to the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank # T40. Instead, I recommend using the LaSalle Bristol RV Sewer Slip Hub with Flange # 34466V13 which has a farther apart mounting hole location. To properly secure these items together, you're also going to need some solvent # 3447530889 .
