    Has anyone had experience with electric waste gates? We have an older 5th wheel and I'm having trouble pulling the handles to open the black and gray tanks due to physical disability. Is there one brand better than another? Are they prone to problems? Thanks for your help.

    Hi Turtlebutt and welcome.
    The Items you are speaking about are a standard plumbing items. Primarily used in water treatment plants and commercial buildings.. There are several versions depending on the pressure needed to be contained. some are pneumatic and some are electric. All are bulky and require quite a bit of space to install....You may have to revamp your plumbing and cut some holes to accommodate these larger valves. I will try to find a link to a valve mfg. for you.

    Good Luck in your search...
