Gate valve replacement

Hi, there’s a small leak at my gate valve so I bought another one to replace it. Looks pretty simple. The only question I have is has anyone replaced theirs before because I bought the standard 3” and I thought Escape said the one on my 5.0TA is a 3.5”.
Thank you.

Are you talking about the gate valve to drain the black tank for sewer?

Your 5.0 being a 2014 may be different then the current models.

Many times those small leaks can be remedied by cleaning the area that opens & closes then lubricating.

Replacing it was a 3” gate valve and my daughter was able to do it fairly easily. Thank you.
