Raising waste dump valve

Hi all, new member here. I have had my 2019 Thor Chateau 28z for a little over a year now and have had very minimal issues. We have gone on several long trips to the Eastern Sierras from San Diego without any issue. On our last trip, when entering an oddly shaped driveway in Bishop, CA, the bottom of my waste dump valve scraped on the ground. I first noticed how low the valve was on our first trip when I had to walk all the black/grey water out of the "stinky slinky".

Has anyone had any luck raising the valve? Not sure how much I would be able to raise it, as the black pipe runs directly under the driveshaft.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome to the Forum! Since it runs under the driveshaft: you're pretty much limited to what you've got...

What about using a Flo-jet macerator, and pumping the crud to where it needs to go?
