Electric dump valves

Anyone installed them? Thinking about putting some in, it sure would be nice to push a button instead of walking outside and pulling a lever. The bad thing is the under belly, thats gonna be a tough chore. Was thinking on getting the ones with the manual overide but what good would that do if you gotta take the underbelly down to get to them. Lets hear it fellow jayco owners.

I really like the idea of the electric valves, but I think it would cause me more nervousness than a manual valve. Every time I hit the switch running through my mind would be if the hose came off somehow or not.

Are your valves covered by the underbelly? My 5th are out in the open and would be a good candidate.

I gotta get out of my 5th wheel and unhook the hose and put it away anyway. Now if they came up with a hose that puts its self away then they may have something.

I would go for the electric dump valve just for my gray tank because they put the dang valve handle under the living room slide out. My choices are crawl under the TT and pull it or close the slide pull the valve then put the slide back out. I bring the slide in and out cause rocks hurt the knees!

This is a very crude drawing I just made with paint. I think that something like this would work well and would be very easy to make or have made. Cheap too!

If you double click the image it gets to a bigger image. I hope this is of some value!
