RE: Lasalle dump valves to Valterra

So to follow up on the problem. First off the Lasalle valves are also called Baxter. They seem to be pretty popular. The bolt pattern is the same as the Valterra so I don't need to by the different valves. I am installing electric motors to the top of the valve to eliminate the cable. So far for this installation I only need to grind off a support bump that runs between the bolts on the 3" valve so the motor mount plate can sit flat against the valve. I pulled the plumbing off the trailer by removing the bolts holding the valves together so I was able to look at it in sections and test the valves and fittings before reinstalling it. I cannot find my plumbers grease for the valve reassembly so I will get it back together tomorrow. I'm taking some pictures so I will post them when I finish if it all works.

Lasalle dump valves to Valterra

So my current trailer has what looks like Lasalle cable type dump valves. I bought electric controls that go on a Valterra valve. Just curious if anyone would know if the middle of the valves could interchange so I don't have to re-manufacture the entire drain system. My thought is to purchase a Valterra 3" dump valve and remove the 4 bolts holding it together along with the same on the trailer and just change out the middle part leaving the sides in place. Anyone have any experience at this?

RE: Caulk or no caulk

Thanks. I figured from the stories I read on here if there was a problem someone would have already gone through it even though I couldn't think of one. We have a Genesis Supreme and they seemed to do a great build job but didn't caulk that area so I also thought there may be a reason. I think it is going to get a good fill in a couple of days.

RE: Caulk or no caulk

Agree with Grit Dog….you definitely want to address it as ramp doors are expensive to replace. Don’t ask how I know.?? I don't believe he's talking about ramp doors, but rather the floor inside the trailer. But... Do TH ramp doors typically encapsulate material that is prone to rot? I never considered that having owned multiple other enclosed trailers with ramp doors that literally got wet regularly/constantly for periods of time with no issues. Not something I had considered...a toyhauler with paper mache ramps? Yes I am talking about where the dove tail of the floor goes under the plate at the back of the toy hauler. I don't think I can remove it as it is welded to the frame. I was thinking about caulking it under the edge as there is a gap between the top of the floor and bottom of the plate.

Caulk or no caulk

So at the back of the toy hauler where the vynol goes under the metal plate I have a gap. It seems water could just run under the metal plate and rot the floor there and I am thinking about caulking it. Thought I would see if others have done the same or left it as it drains. With the barrier under the flooring I can't see that area from below. If the floor was flat I wouldn't' worry about it too much but it is a dove tail floor so any moisture will defiantly flow there. What say you???

RE: Anybody still going out?

We rode out east of Bend Oregon last weekend. I have never seen it so dusty this early. Not one trail had any water holes in them. After camping there for 5 days it may take as many to get the toy hauler cleaned for next weekend at the dunes. I am sure we will not camp out in the high desert again until fall when it rains a bit. Time to take the boat out on the lakes and ride at the dunes or in the mountains.
