Black Tank Valve

So my trailer has an enclosed and insulated underbelly. My black tank handle which is up at the front of the trailer in the wetbay, has a cable that goes back to the black tank valve which is in the middle of the trailer. I am guessing the valve is stuck? I cannot push or pull the handle at all. I believe the valve is partially open since it seems to drain, just not sure how much it is draining. I am able to turn the exposed rod/handle, that's why I believe it's the valve. Has anybody here had to cut open the bottom and insulation to get to the valve? And how do you replace it if it has a cable that runs to the front of the trailer? I'm at a loss as to what to do!

RE: Galley Grey Tank

It shouldn't happen again, the main dump valve was frozen so I started using a hair dryer to thaw it, half way through I thought I would see if water would come through yet so I pulled the tank valve real fast open close. So pretty sure that is how water got in there. Temps are staying very cold here but I am heading south next week!

RE: Galley Grey Tank

UPDATE!!! I got a gallon of full strength antifreeze and poured it down the drain, opened tank valve and let sit all day, then opened main drain valve and the tank emptied!!!! Thank you all so much for all the ideas/advice!!!!

RE: Galley Grey Tank

It has got down in the teens a some nights but mostly low to mid 20's all night and in the day upper 20's to mid 30's. I think I might try putting a heater underneath to see....I really don't want to have to do "surgery" :( No food gunk down the drain, been living almost 2 yrs in it so don't think construction material, at least hope not!

RE: Galley Grey Tank

Yeah there are no markings or access areas underneath my trailer, all I can do is wing it according to the schematics :( That's why cutting is my last resort. Still hoping maybe ice in the one pipe but not seeing even a dribble come out I'm losing faith. Maybe I can try a heater under there for a bit and see what happens.

RE: Galley Grey Tank

I do have a long pipe like that but its completely enclosed underneath And I have not seen even a drip of water come out so far. If it is frozen I would think outside temp of 42 should start to thaw it?

Galley Grey Tank

My galley tank is not draining. Valve is on long cable in insulated and enclosed underbelly so I can't see it but the handle doesn't feel any different, feels like it is working? Water goes down the drain with no hesitation, could there still be a clog somewhere? I am in the cold but have heat running everywhere and my other valves (black & another grey) work fine..the galley tank is furthest back under the trailer, could the pipe from tank valve to dump opening be frozen? But then it was 42 under the trailer yesterday and still no water coming out, not even a dribble! This is driving me crazy....anybody have ideas I can try before I start cutting the underbelly?? Thanks!! Wish I could attach picture of my plumbing for you here.
