Video Transcript for Review of Valterra RV Waste Valves - Straight Valve with Cable - TC172

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the Valterra Waste Valve Body with the 72 inch long flexible cable for your RV gray water tank. Now, this is a replaceable valve for your RV's gray water tank. You can see, when it's open, you activate it, it'll open up, and that'll give you a 1 1/2 inch diameter passage that allows the waste water to travel freely when the valve is open. And then to close it, you just turn your handle, and that'll close the valve. Now, it will include everything shown here on the table.

It includes the valve body itself, the 72 inch long flexible cable, a mounting bracket, which is included if you wanna install it on your RV's side wall with the mounting hardware, and then it comes with the hardware for the valve body, comes with the two seals, one on each side, comes with the four bolts to install it with the nuts, and it even comes with an Allen wrench to loosen this Allen bolt here to allow you to attach the cable to this portion right here. Now, the cable we mentioned, it's a 72 inch flexible cable, this will let you install your valve handle where you want it, so you don't have to go searching underneath your RV for it. This will allow the handle to be converted from a hard access location to a nice simple push pull placement like the control access panel compartment. The inner wire on this cable is a stainless steel construction. Now, we mentioned, this aluminum mounting bracket here, they do include this, 'cause if you don't have room in your control access compartment, this will allow you to mount the handle to the RV's side wall.

And just to give you an idea, there's an insert there, it shows you how this handle installs into this and then you can mount it to the RV's side wall, comes with the mounting hardware. Last thing I wanna do is just give you some dimensions on this valve body. So if we measure from the bottom to the very top, 10 1/4 inches that way, 3 1/4 inches that way, and the depth at the widest point is down here, 1 1/2 inches deep. But that should do it for the review on the Valterra Waste Valve Body with the 72 inch long flexible cable for your RV gray water tank..

This was very easy to setup, worked per fectly




by:

The Valterra waste valve w/72 inch cable was easy to install and has performed flawlessly for the past year. I installed this product on our 5th wheel because the original location of the gray water dump valve was very difficult to reach when the slide was out.

See what our Experts say about this Valterra RV Waste Valves

  • Can the Cable on Valterra Flexible Cable Kit # TC172 be Cut Shorter
    The cable part of Valterra Flexible Cable Kit # TC172 is not already installed so you could cut it to length if you wanted or needed to in order to get it positioned where you want it.

  • Can You Reuse The Same Cable When Replacing A Waste Valve
    Yes, the cable of your old waste valve can be used with your new Valterra Waste Valve Body w/ Flexible Cable for RV Gray Water Tank - 72" # TC172. The cable simply gets pushed into the valve body and tightened down with an Allen key (pictured below).

  • Are Special Tools Needed to Trim Cable of Valterra Waste Valves
    We have confirmed that the cable of the Valterra waste valves like part # TC172 can be trimmed shorter. While we don't have a video that shows this process you'd need to cut the outer cable and inner cable before assembling the valve. Special tools would not be required. Some wire cutters would be all you'd need.

  • Installing Seals on the Replacement Valterra Waste Valve
    When installing the Valterra Waste Valve Body w/ Flexible Cable for RV Gray Water Tank, # TC172 I suggest you place the seals on the valve body. Please note the attached installation video, this is not for the exact same valve but a similar product that installs in like manner. .

  • Replacing a Bristol Waste Valve With a Valterra Waste Valve
    Plumbing parts are interchangeable on RV's just as long as the fittings are the correct size. I couldn't find that exact part number but I believe I have found the Valterra equivalent. If the Bristol valve you are talking about uses the flexible cable then you can use the Valterra Flexible Cable Kit # TC172 which has a 1-1/2 inch valve or the Valterra Flexible Cable Kit # TC372 which has a 3 inch valve.

  • Measurements of Valterra Waste Valves
    For the Valterra # TC372 the bolt pattern is 3-3/4", and the overall length, minus the protrusion, is 13-7/8". For the Valterra # TC172 the bolt pattern is 2-1/2", and the overall length, minus the protrusion, is 9-1/4". I have attached dimensional drawings to illustrate this and provide some additional measurements.

  • T1001VP RV Waste Valve Handle Type
    The Valterra # T1001VP Waste Valve has a threaded on handle, but it will require a vise to hold the rod in place to get the handle to twist off. You may also be interested in the Valterra # TC172 Waste Valve, which is cable operated valve. The 72" cable will give you lots of mounting location options. I have included a link to the valve below.

  • Can Waste Valve Extension Tube and Handle be Used as a Replacement
    The Valterra Waste Valve Extension Tube with Handle # TX9HPB can be used as a replacement, but they do thread in (see accompanying photo). If you can no longer thread in a rod, you are going to need to replace your waste valve with something like the Valterra Waste Valve Body w/ Flexible Cable for RV Gray Water Tank - 72" # TC172 or whatever type of waste valve you need. I have added a link to our entire selection of waste valves for you to check out.

  • Replacement Cable and Valve Handle Options for a 2015 Open Range 316 5th Wheel
    If you have a Valterra waste valve on your 2015 Open Range 316 then it should have a set screw to secure the cable that runs to the handle. I have never inspected the OEM waste valves on a trailer before but I would be surprised if there were no set screw. Should you find that you don't have one the worst case scenario would be to replace the whole waste valve with a Valterra replacement like part # TC172 that you referenced. When it comes to the length that is totally up to you. If you...

  • Replacement Seals for Valterra 1-1/2 Diameter Waste Valve
    The replacement seals for the Kit # TC172 can be found on our site as part # T1001-9VP. This comes both with 2 seals and with some replacement hardware. The seals should do the trick, but if you're still experiencing a drop somewhere I'd do some double checking to make sure that you have everything installed properly and that any sealant you've used elsewhere is holding up.

  • Waste Valve Will Not Open With Cable Pull
    The cable is normally attached to the valve using a set screw inside the housing. You would want to pry the housing open and see if the cable has come unhooked if you have the LaSalle Bristol Cable-Actuated RV Waste Valve for Gray Water Tank part # 34466N11AB60GM. There is not replacement cable available for the Lasalle Bristol so you would most likely need to replace the whole unit. If you have the Valterra brand like part # TC172 you can replace the cable with part # TC72PB.

  • Replacement Cable for Cable Actuated RV Waste Valve
    The cable itself is not available for the LaSalle Bristol Cable-Actuated RV Waste Valve # 34466N4BB96GM, However, we do carry Valterra products like the Valterra Waste Valve Body w/ Flexible Cable for RV Gray Water Tank # TC172- which do have replacement cables available. If you needed to replace the cable on a Valterra waste valve you would want to use the Valterra Cable with Valve Handle # TC96PB, which can be used with both Valterra and Bladex cable actuated waste valves.

  • Replacement 1-1/2 Inch Gray Water Valve and Cable for Trailer or RV
    The LaSalle Bristol Cable-Actuated RV Waste Valve for Gray Water Tank - Spigot to Hub - 60" Cable # 34466N11AB60GM will allow you to remove the outer spigot and hub so you just use the cable and the valve. You can alternatively use the Valterra Waste Valve Body w/ Flexible Cable for RV Gray Water Tank - 72" # TC172 which will give you a slightly longer cable if desired.
