How to Determine Correct Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank

Question:

I have a 2016 Rpod 177. My black tank pipe hanger failed and I ruined the end of the pipe. It didn't damage the valve, but that was leaking anyway so I would like to go ahead and replace the the entire assembly. What part/s should I purchase?

Ok so it sounds like what you are wanting to do is just replace your black water tank's waste valve, and I can let you know how to determine the correct one, as there unfortunately isn't a way for us to know the exact valve for your R-Pod.

It's pretty simple though, because you just need to know if the valve you are replacing slid over your pipe or into your pipe.

If both ends of your waste valve slid into your sewer pipe you will need the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Spigot to 3" Spigot # T40A.

If both ends of your waste valve slid over your sewer pipe you will need the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Hub to 3" Hub # T40B.

If one end of your waste valve slid into a pipe, and one slid over a pipe you will need the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Hub to 3" Spigot # T40.

To install these the only other thing you will need is the Valterra ABS Solvent Cement # A05-0303.

I have added links below to video reviews of each of these valves for you to check out as well.
