It's a shame that there are some people who unfairly take advantage of their customers and overcharge for parts and services rendered. Like I said, do your homework before you open your checkbook and get taken to the cleaners.
If you would please, we would like to know the name of the shop that charged $ 14.19 for a Thetford valve, and so would every other RV dealership in the United States.
We would like to buy at least 500 of them or so at that price.
The Thetford factory charges many times more than that to their wholesale distributors.
Facts are facts and installing a gray tank, when a trailer never had one, costs far more than a replacement black water tank.
