Replacing Dump Valve - Handle Exchange Problem
I bought a Valterra 3" Bladex Valve (T1003VP) to replace a leaking waste tank valve. On the packaging material it says "Threaded handle for easy replacement." I take it this means that I could unscrew the short handle from the new valve and replace it w/ the much longer handle from my existing valve. So I thought I would try it today before pulling apart the old valve installation. The problem is, I can't figure out how to get the new shorter handle out on the new valve - it simply turns but does not want to back out. Anybody know the secret for backing these handles out, or did I misunderstand the "easy replacement" claim and actually need a drilled valve handle receiver without a handle already in it?
