For those of us who own an RV with the gray- and black-water trap valve under the RV and find it hard to reach without getting on your knees, I came up with a solution.Â
I went to Home Depot, and for $3.50, I purchased a 30-inch sprinkler valve key and bent the fork end in a 90-degree angle to the handle. Now I use the fork end to pull the slide valve open to dump and also use the fork end to push the valves closed â€” all without getting on my knees! I hope this little hint helps others.
