Question Black Water Tank-Manual Open?

I recently was dumping my black water tank (1984 Classic Motorhome)when the handle can off in my hand. It was apparently rusted through. Is there a way to open the valve manually? I know the valve needs to be replaced, but I'd like to dump the tank first.

The last guy with this problem had the best answer. Take it to the dealer.

Some projects don't need to be DIY.
