Dump valve replacement

I have a 2014 International 27 ft Airstream. How do I change dump on black and gray, the trailer is sealed on bottom.

Drill out the pop rivets. Drop the belly pan. Create an access panel after doing the repairs.

Use SEARCH there are one or two great threads om replacing dump valves without taking a s----- shower.

This thread shows how I changed them on my 1999 Excella. Toward the end of the thread there is a post on a 2009 Classic.
Yours should be similar.

Why do you think the valves need replacing? On a 2014 trailer the valves should be good for several more years. Mine were 20 years old.

ps:
When you get into it, would you please add photos and a description of your experience so that others can benefit from it? Adding to the thread I started is OK with me.
Thanks!!!!

Go to Restoration Forum, then choose Plumbing subforum, then browse through several good threads.

My owners manual says to service the dump valves "they" cut an access hole in the belly pan, make the repairs, and install a cover plate. That is exactly what I did when I replaced my valves....The trailers should come with an access panel from the factory, IMO.

Me too with cutting an aces hole. That is what Airstream did and what I did on the second trailer. Much easier than dropping the pan. Also wondering what tha actual problem is with the valves? I know from experience that the valve body can crack and that the seals can tear. But also stuff that can be cleaned out can get caught in the valve. It is an expensive job to have done.
