Valterra T58 Twist-On Waste Valve

The waste plumbing design on my Jay Feather 24T was not well thought out. I have 3 tanks - 2 gray and, 1 black water. There is a gate valve right at the drain of each tank - 3 gate valves total. There is a lot of plumbing between the 3 valves and the sewer hose 3" bayonet fitting. When I remove the termination cap to connect the hose at the dump station, there is always about a pint of liquid that comes out. It makes a mess. I purchased the Valterra T58 Twist-On Waste Valve to connect to the bayonet fitting at the end to add another gate valve to the system. It made for a great resolution to the issue.
Quick Fix & Bonus
It was a quick and easy fix that also had an added benefit. We have 2 gray tanks, and the kitchen tank always get full before the bath tank. Now I'm able to keep the 2 gray tank gate valves open which, in effect, combines the 2 tanks into 1 large tank.

I may need to do this on my hybrid. It seems there's always a little seepage when I take off the cap.

I agree, the Twist on valve is an essential tool for my sewer aids. It has come in handy on many occasions. I also use it on my blue boy to make it easier to control dumping the small tank.

Sounds like a defective unit; I'd send it back and get a new one. Have not had a problem with mine at all.

Two thinks I like about Amazon:
1. - If they don't have it, you don't need it.
2. - no questions asked returns.

I have thought about this solution as well, but I am a little concerned about keeping them on all the time. Do they stay on while traveling?

I can't imagine it coming off. PLUS you still have the original gate valves.

I am honestly more worried about losing the $20 or so per valve, and I need two for my FW. Would you recommend maybe a little gorilla glue when putting them on?
