It’s best to have a clear 45-degree elbow connector at the termination valve to see what is coming out of the tank, and to ensure the tank is clean. Use gloves and eye protection when flushing tanks.
A typical termination-valve assembly (left) has a 3-inch-diameter black-water hub with a black handle and a 1½-inch-diameter gray-water hub with a gray handle. If the termination valve sticks or leaks, it may need to be serviced. Here, a valve is disassembled (right). The two flanges will be glued to the pipe on the RV, and the gaskets seated. The valve can be cleaned and then lubricated with valve grease, such as Dow Corning Molykote 111. Once the valve is working well, the new gaskets are installed on the flanges. The pipes are manually pried apart for the valve to slide in between (a helper makes this easier), and the four bolts are installed.
