'15 Classic with Autodrain

Today I installed the Barker Autodrain system in my new Classic. Well, TWO systems actually. One for the black tank and one for the gray. I did this install on my '12 28' Intl CCD and really liked the convenience of NOT having to go outside and pull the valves. This is especially nice when I'm in a park with a sewer hookup. The Classic posed a challenge, as it has a different dump system without the visible blade valves. I had to fabricate mounts for each valve and rivet them in place, then bolt the Autodrain mechanism in place. Since I've gone to this "ONE PANEL FOR EVERY CONTROL" thing, I ran wires inside the trailer so I could put the two switches on the bottom of the control panel. They flash red when the valves are open. (Oh, I have saved the standard pull toggles so if all else fails I can pull the lever(s) manually.
