I wondered the same thing only I have three handles 1 is for balck tank and its long then frist gray tank handle is short the second gray handle is as long as the black tank it dosen't make any sense to me . And all three are under the slide thats one thing that I didnt look for when we got the Trailer.

With the handles out, the black tank handle will be longer because the black valve is bigger in diameter....it has to move out twice as much as the grey valves to open a "full port". 3" black valves, 1.5 grey valves.
Where they put them and how they are orientated is on the designers. I love the location of my 29.5bhds, the black and both grey valves are right beside one another in front of the main slide.....water inlet and black tank flush are right above that in the same spot. Makes it easy to dump and flush.

Maybe it so you don't have to reach waaay back to grab the black tank handle and maybe not have the dump hose secure!! I want to be as far away from the connections as possible when I pull the handle!! Just a thought.

I'm not really sure but I think you're right I don't want to be anywhere near that black hose connection when I pull on the handle :-) talk about mud in your face...

Thanks for the visual. I had almost forgot about Rat Fink.
