Dump valve leak

I seem to have a leak in what I am sure is the valve labeled 'Main'. Although the tanks are empty now, I would get a slow drip from the (new) cap. It appears I also need a new white connector fitting as that drips as well. Replacing/ repairing these valves looks like I must remove that huge underbelly pan cover. Has anyone ever added a new valve outside of that near the existing levers? I'm not sure if cutting the 3" ABS behind the levers would work, or somehow out on the end. I would not know how I could do this without blocking those levers, or reducing my ground clearance by angling the new valve away from them.
