I have heard of others having problems swapping Bristol with Valterra, but I didn't have any trouble. If you search the forums for "electric dump valve" you will find several sites that state folks have had to do odd things to get them to fit.

I would suggest buying an extra set of the O-ring gaskets as the first time I replaced the 1.5" valve, it leaked. Apparently I didn't place them correctly and it got pinched. After replacing the O-rings it worked.

I've read some of the threads from some of you fine folks indicating that it is possible to find them but I am not wanting to dig a couple of exploratory holes looking to see if I can get their location... any useful hint will be appreciated and yes, thought about selling!

Better keep your mouth closed up tight there mister!
