Grey tank jammed shut

2017 Minnie Winnie towable 2455bhs.

Hey Winnie owners. Iím camping now and Iím a bit of bother. They gray tank valve is jammed closed. Completely unmovable even with a lot of pulling. I cut into the underbelly but the cable runs way in to the unit. So two questions. First - is there a way to fix this myself. Second where the heck is the gate valve- itís nowhere near the handle ! Thanks in advance.

We have a new Minnie plus and on our maiden voyage we went to dump finding all 3 valves were seized. We were told this was a problem with manufacturing, all were replaced and now one gray won’t close completely.

Valves stuck open (not closing) are typical in new RV / Trailers. Quite often when the line workers cut into the tank, they leave debris that ends up blocking the valve. (Apparently it is cheaper to have warranty work than right-first-time). What confounds me is how the valve would be stuck closed - it's a gate valve so nothing should prevent it opening... but something clearly has....
