Valve brands

Does anyone know the brand of valves used on older AS? I have a '61 Tradewind. The valves appear in ok shape but I can't find any caps, connectors or hoses. The valve body is brass with an aluminum blade. There are 4 wedge shaped flanges on the valve. Any help would be appreciated.

Mike

That valave has been obsolete for over 45 years.

You can remove the fiberglass tank, cut out the brass valve, and glass in the new style square white bracket, and then go from there.

Many owners have already made that conversion.

Thanks Andy, I think I posted too quick. After further research I discovered that i have a Thetford Brass collector and that I'm out of luck. My two options are not using it or replacing it. I'm hoping I can at least use it to route to an external gray tank so I can take showers and do dishes.

Thanks again
Mike
