Electric soiled waste dumper plus location of dumping switch

Sometimes when it gets nasty outside like rain when it's time to empty the soiled water tank. I saw an idea mentioned in National Bus Trader magazine. You can have some electrical wires running up to the soiled water tank that would dump your water tank. And one if them could be a dumper motor. To work it from the driver seat, a switch on the main switch panel would be the place to put it. In the 1960s, Carpenter had two rows of switches on their main switch panel that sat to the left side of the driver seat. One row which was in the row towards the driver seat was for your dome lights, warning flashers, and your windshield wipers. The row of switches on the window side of that same panel would have been for your heater, door defroster, and windshield defroster. Now in the same row as the dome light switch, I could mount the soiled water dumper switch between the dome lights and the switch for the passenger side windshield wiper or I would put it up next to one of the heater/defroster switches. And on the gauge bank more like between the air gauge and the switch panel, a light with a buzzer to warn the driver that the soiled water tank is full.

Are you talking your black water, or gray water tank? I ordered a 3/4" inline electric valve ($4) for dumping my gray tank. I see them up to 2" ($50).

Brass for water, gas, or air.

Electrically operated dump valves are VA common item.
