Waste valves

For those that have replaced the cable operated waste valves. Were you able to use solid tubes and get them into the convenience center? Thinking about a winter project.

I replaced the cables for solid rods. I simply ran them straight from the valve, through the frame, to the outside. I don't think we can run solid rods to the inconvenience center.

I replaced all four cables with threaded rod direct pulls, on our current rig. Required some minor rerouting of the plumbing under the trailer. Convenience center was not possible, ran all four through the frame instead. I have to bend over, but worth it.
