dump valve location

Where is the dump valve on a '72 Tradewind? There's a picture in the
manual, but not enough of one for me to find it .

Look under the trailer and it should be rather evident.

Don't know about the Tradewind but on mine it is on the left side in the rear bumper.

It has to be close to where you hook up your sewer hose.

Look inside the rear bumper compartment.

The only thing at the left rear where the dump outlet is is an aluminum tube that might be a push pull sort of valve actuator, perhaps? It doesn't respond to either pushing or pulling, however; perhaps it's stuck...

Bart,

That's probably it. Any chance you could take some pics? Somebody here would almost certainly be able to help with pics.

That's it, and it's probably stuck. Add some water to the tank, and let it sit a while, and try again. Umm, stand away from the outlet, in case the previous owner left you a present.

On my 1967 Tradewind the dump valve outlet is on the left inside the rear bumper compartment. There is a small trapdoor under the outlet for the hose.To open the valve you have to remove the back electrical cover above the bumper cover to pull the valve handle. My handle has two wire bails that hold the valve in the closed position. Adios, John

Thanks! I'll give that a try, and use a bucket just in case....
