T-Handle on black water tank Broke.

I pulled to empty the black water tank on my 2003 and one side of the T broke off. I epoxied a small steel Rod on the broken side and it worked for a while. Any ideas for a fix???

These are purchasable from most RV supply stores, Google it for online suppliers.

The handle stem should be threaded, and the handle should twist off that. I just just a piece of aluminium flat bar, and tapped it to thread onto the shaft. I then put a nut on the top to secure it.
If I was doing it a again, I would use a chunk of aluminum round stock, maybe 5/8" as it would look nicer.

I'll take a look at it. I hope it is threaded. I can probably find some rod. Thanks for the idea. Otherwise it may be a job for small vice grips. DH

CampingWorld has everything but what you need. I got my replacement handle via Amazon. Just search Amazon for Valerra and what you need will eventually show up.
