Gray and black tank handles stuck shut?

Hello, I have a 2021 micro mini 2108tb and just came to open it up for the summer. I am not able to open the gray and black tank levers. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If the handles won't move at all, it's possible that the handle shafts have rusted into their sleeves. Instead of pulling, you might try rotating the handles a bit to break this corrosion. I had to use channel locks to grab the shaft and do this on my old fifth-wheel once. Once they are free, they should slide in/out as normal. I'd clean them up and then lubricate them regularly with a white lithium grease (to help exclude water and prevent corrosion).

That worked and now I will lubricate to prevent the same problem. Thank you for responding.

When lubing your tank handle shafts be sure to use a good quality teflon based lube. Using WD40 or any other silicone based lubricants can get a little gummy over time and cause some issues.
