Sandi, do as ddrueckh says. It isn't as big of a job to remove the valve. Be sure you have a big enough container. Just slowly remove those bolts. Raise your trailer safely and as high as possible to make it easier. You might have to empty the container a few times. Let us know what made the valve stick. If the seal was stuck it still would open to a certain extend. A dry/wet vacuum would probably work to take most of it out the tank.


Tugboat95; seems cutting this and that is poor advise

Wouldn't be the first time I've cut a tank because the valve failed. I'm under the impression it was glued on But if the valve can removed by 4 screws take it a field and unscrew them. Start with bottom ones first. No more than what's in it I wouldn't worry about dumping it away from any houses or creeks. But if in an urban area better catch it. If you just unscrew the bottom, it should leak out and be controlled fairly easily.

OK< I'll have to look to see which way the 90 pipe goes, to the front or rear! good advise. Someone also said take a sawzall and cut the valve half way and hook up to the dump and reach in with needle noes to grap the gate and pull it open. then the contents could drain into the hose to emty, still put a container under the valve, but the mess would be minimal. Thanks for your imput.

Do you think a shop vac would be strong enough if there is solids in there. I put so much dawn, chems & sewer treatment in there its most likley just liquid though. how dificult is it to take the toilet off and go thru there?
It's a thetford!

I think these unbolt. A shop vac can pickup gravel, it would have no problem with turds, but it is gross!

I'm the one that said cut it. If the valve is bolted on as others have suggested then unbolt the valve. I assumed these were glued on as in a house PVC setup. And you know what happens when I ASSUME. By all means just try to unbolt it and jump out the way. Cutting is absolutely the last resort, but I work with this stuff and I ain't scared of it.

posts like these are why blank tank threads are the best
