Just to be sure - youíve taken the security clips off the handle?

If so, perhaps spray some lube up the rod?

Those are the first 2 things Iíd check. Others will chime in with better advice. Good luck!

Welcome to the forum!

Did the dealer operate this valve during your PDI? [pre delivery inspection]

Suggest pushing the handle in gently to see if it will move a little. If so pull out and check again.

Call the dealer too.

Good luck,


PS you refer to a “lever.” Most grey tank dump valves are opened by grabbing a small T-shaped handle connected to a shaft which, after releasing the safety clips per SSM, pulls the steel gate valve plate outward, to free up the gray discharge pipe to flow freely. Is yours different maybe? A photo might help if you have some new fangled setup.
