Black water tank valve

we tried to dump the black water and the handle from the valve broke off, does anybody know how to repair this?
We have a 3611RL 2015 Montana 5th wheel.
Thank you so much
Maggie and Roland

If you are talking about the plastic end that either screws onto the rod or has a screw to hold it on then they are available to replace. If it broke where the rod attaches to the cable, you will have to open it up and may have to replace the cable.

Whether the handle broke or the cable, if it is the cable pull style, discard both and replace with solid rod style valves. Been there, done that. Those pulls look nice on the showroom floor but dealing with weak links on a road trip is no fun.

If just the handle itself, you should be able to use pliers to open and close the valve as an interim solution.
As indicated by Dick, replacement handles are available.
