I have a 10'4" 2006 corsair truck camper
the sewer valves are in the basement near the front of the camper

How would one access them to change one out ..
basement only has about 8" clearance .. they are in the front about 6-8 away feet away from the back

With camper off of truck are there any panels that can be removed for direct access?


Is it time for your medication or mine?

That would be about the first thing to learn to do, load and unload the camper.
Valves near the front sounds like a horrible design btw.

I’m having trouble imagining how that even works. Have to go into the camper to dump the tanks.

You didn't put the camper on the truck backwards did you? [emoticon]

But seriously, take it off the truck and if that doesn't give you access about the only choice is a sawsall...but I'll bet taking it off gives easy access.

Where is the sewer hose connection for dumping?
If the valves are located toward front of camper does that require off loading to dump or are they remote/cable operated?

If it really is hidden you could probably switch to electric dump valves and a 12v masorator pump with a remote switch to drain them.

I do not think you will be able to to a lot without taking the camper off the truck and removing the lower camper floor cover. But I have never seen a Corsair camper, so they may be different.

The forward location of the sewer dump valves sounds unusual to me. Where is the bath room, as the the black tank is usually underneath the toilet. And the rest of the plumbing runs to the rear, towards the sewer hose connection. In all the setups I know, the valves have always been close to the sewer hose connection.

I know my Host has the dump valve in the basement and cable operated control accessible near the discharge port. My entire gray tank sits just aft of the fresh water tank and forward of the axle. I believe some Lance models also used cable controls to keep the valves inside.
