Thetford EZ Slide T-1169 Dump valve Leaking ???

I have discovered that my dump valve is leaking and my collector is cracked and leaking. I'm seeing that buying this replacement part is probally not going to happen. Would anyone know of a matching dump valve that would fit my existing tank?

Surely someone knows where to buy stuff to fit a 1970 Overlander.

Call the company. They had a rebuild kit for my 68 at a very reasonable price.

Go Valterra whenever possible

If you have problems beyond your dump valve, i.e. cracked plumbing, you are better to consider a retrofit to VALTERRA parts. These are now industry standard and easy to get. There is a adapter that bolts to your tank (4 bolt) and then you can re-plumb with Valterra .This requires at least 1.5" additional space. You have not specified what year/model you own . Some of them are really tightly located and you have to cut a vent line to get them out. Usually though a Thetford replacement or kit can be found- it's just not possible to find the downstream plastic fitting that your sewer hose connects to.
