New dump valves "hang low"

Ok, 62 tradewind. I will make this a clear as possible.

Rear black tank, No gray tank. Just two, two inch drains coming from shower and kitchen. Removed old white valve. Had to fiberglass new flange to bottom of good black water tank. So now you have Old tank, New valterra valve. Used 90 degree angle and two draind lines into rear of 90. then twist on cap! (Clear as mud?) The valve will drag and rub the 90 and cap.

The old white valve had two lines coming in either side, just above main valve. do they still make that style?

Options?

Do you mean a "collector"?

The collector was after the dump valve.

Andy, I looked very close today. you have main drain from black tank, straight down to valterra pull valve. elbow from valve has two drains from shower and sink coming into rear. I had to add about two inches to black tank 3" flange to make connection to valterra pull valve. its two inches to low! The frame has drag bars on rear that look around 4" in from frame (Tall). I added around two more inches to existing bars. (Did they have factory bars in 1962) I will send you some pics...

Thanks Andy, You have been great! Oh old red number #7563 ??? previous owner?
