Jay Feather Micro - FRESH water dump

Question - On our Jay Feather Micro 166FBS we have a small clear tube that is used for the FRESH water tank dump/empty. Has anyone replaced this or the valve on it to get better/quicker dumping? We have the tank heaters so I am not sure if this will limit what can be done but man this thing takes a LONG time to empty 55gal when doing a tank sanitation at home (where I cannot use the grey/black tanks).

All of our friends (no tank heaters) have the big white valves to dump like the black/grey tanks have...

Wondering if anyone has made any changes/upgrades for this?

It does take a long time, but it's the size of the hole and fitting that the hose connects to on the tank that's the deciding factor on how fast it drains. We have twin 42-gallon tanks, and it takes quite a while. I open the valves and go do something else while they're draining.

I also thought mine took forever, then I opened up the sinks in the TT, helped a lot. I mean it is obvious, but when you are buzzing about doing stuff, those things donít always pop to mind. You can also get adaptors that can then be fitted with larger valves, not sure if it would matter.
