Broken dump valve

Has anyone experienced a broken handle on an older airstreams black tank dump valve. Just purchased, 1973, with mid bathroom. The handle was gone and the only way I can see to get to it is from the side?

Would I be able to get to this and replace if I dropped the belly pan?

I do not know about the 70's trailer. The 80's models the dump valve is under a big galvanized pan that holds the tanks. The way to access the valves is to cut a hole in the galvanized pan and then patch it. That is my suggestion. That is what Airstream does at Jackson Center.
