Would work but the valve is vertical and not sure how to attach without having cable hanging down

If you install a "twist on terminal valve" at the 3" outlet on the side of the trailer, you can leave the galley tank valve open and control the dumping from the terminal valve. The only "drawback" to that configuration is that the exposed drain line from the galley tank to the terminal connection (if it's exposed under the trailer) would be subject to freeze damage if you winter camp) If you don't winter camp, that would not be an issue and if you do, then during the winter, use the OEM galley valve to prevent water from standing in the exposed drain line.

A few years back I called Keystone to get a wiring diagram for the antenna system and to make a few suggestions to improve their design of the hatches. Their response was they don't give out any drawings and they are professional trailer makers and don't need suggestions.

When we were shopping for a 5er last year, the Cougar 315RLS was #1 on my list except that we have a F-250. Personally, I think its just a bit too heavy for a 3/4 ton and a TV upgrade was not going to happen, so I went with a different 5er that's 1000# lighter. That said, if I had bought it, I would probably have installed remote 12V valves like in travelin texans' link.

Keystone's Attitude

I have 2019 Alpine 3400RS, spoke with Keystones Tracey Peffley about the need for a wiring diagram. The two lights over the sink bar come on with the rest of the kitchen lights, more lights than I need, especially when those are the only lights I want to use at the time. My Keystone Outback had them separate, so I know it can be designed correctly. I was told they have no diagrams as they change quickly.

I will just have to tear into it someday.

We have a 29rls cougar lite travel trailer. Our grey tank for the galley is also located under the slide behind the wheel. That's the most complaining I hear from my husband! I bought two about 5-6 inch extenders for both drains. That helps the issue of climbing under to hook up both. The extension for the pull faces more to the ground so not an easy fix. Tried getting longer pulls but didn't help the grey line. That's one of the items of things to look for when buying a new unit for us. Has to be in a more convient location.

This is kinda funny.

When we bought our 26RBSWE, DW was quite disappointed that one of the three cubbies in the pantry was completely blocked off by a screw-in panel across the front. Investigating, I found antenna and power wiring coming out of the control-panel wall near the door, and strung haphazardly across the pantry width to the side of the TV recess where all the outlets were.

Upon inspection, I found that there was more than enough slack cable to route everything through a length of loom at the upper rear of the cubby; screw the hanging splitter to the wall, add a couple of simple cable-management anchors, then fab a simple false wall to cover the rear of the receptacles and their cabling.

Result: 50% increase in pantry space for the DW, and a pantry that no longer looks like brain damage at first sight.

(Image is of the area after cable routing had been tamed, but before loom and false wall were installed.)

Being "professional RV builders" simply means they get paid to do so, has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of work.
