I have the 2010 Jay Feather 17C. My black water valve is facing out and is easy to operate.
My gray water valve is way underneath the trailer somewhat behind the tire. It is very hard to reach and very very hard to push up to close it.
It makes dumping extremely hard.
I'm 66 and not as spry as I used to be.
I'll need to see a chiropractor each time I go out unless someone can tell me how to make opening and closing that valve easier.
