Thanks for following those pictures. I have some too, of the problem, but I am not able to upload them at the moment. I can't exactly see, but do you have two metal straps holding that long pipe? I only have one, about 4 inches rearward of the grey valve and not another.

I have put a few zip ties to the black tank valve handle to keep it closed while traveling today. So far, 300 miles and it is still closed. Best so far since I have owned the trailer. Thanks for the help, and I will update on what my dealer figures out.

Mine only has one strap. It is just about center of the axles.

Dropped off the trailer this morning. They seemed as confused as I was about why it is still opening. Here are the pictures I took on our trip. I will update by Friday on what they find. Hopefully it will be fixed for good. The pictures with the pipe away from the axle is with it on a 5 gallon bucket and a 2x8 piece of wood. As soon as I removed it, the pipe rested on the foam piece again.

I have to say, the current trend on the wastewater dump valves is disturbing.


My old (1983) trailer had a locknut on the black water valve and a latch on the grey so that they could not be opened accidently.


The new one allows easy sliding of the valve handles and they pull downwards (same direction as gravity).


Just for chuckles, there is going to be a Velcro strap installed on them very soon!

Just got the plumping plans for 2015 and it says, drain pipe support every 4ft with a 1/8" slope per foot. so if the pipe is 8ft or shorter I would expect only one support.

That works fine when the valves don't leak and fill the pipe. Doesn't work when the valve keeps failing.
