Our valve has a little dribble when I pull the cap so I don't really worry about it. But I do wear disposable latex gloves that I get from Harbor Freight when "doing the nasty".

I put a flush king on the hose connection when i parked before using any tanks. Leave it in place untill you are ready to dump. Hook up your hose and dump as normal. I agree nasty water when you remove the cap just ain't fun.

Yea not fun to have nasty water come out when you remove cap. Also not good when you have two grandsons that like to play with the handles and you dont know that its been pulled and remove cap and get a big suprise.. ask me how I know this... But on a serious note hope you can get the valve fixed.

Had the same issue with my 2010 315FBHS dealer had no answer for the problem, had them checked it twice, did same thing hooked up the hose to clean it out and also made sure every trip out it was shut properly. Been three years and no leaks.

Got it back - hope it's fixed

Picked up the trailer from the dealer, they say it needed adjustment, wasn't closing the last 1/4 inch. We'll see on our trip over Labor Day..

I bought the exact same camper. 2015 model. After first night camping, black water valve was not closed. Took it back to the dealer, they "fixed" it. Second camping trip, black water valve not closed. We called them, they said that the cable was bent, so they bent it back. Their recommendation: bend it back again. I live 3.5 hrs from the nearest Jayco dealer. Their idea of putting the valve handles on cables was good, but obviously not tested well. I am reluctant to fix it myself because if I screw anything up they will just tell me I voided the warranty.

Got back from out Labor Day weekend, looks like third time is a charm. No leaking black water valve!

I have a 2007 Designer 5th wheel. The black water tank will not drain when I open the valve. How can I get it to drain?
