A 4-way Versa Valve is commonly used on Ranco bottom dump trailers to operate the gates. This replacement part has a manual handle function as well as a solenoid to activate the valve via a switch in the cab for remote dump operation. It’s 100% factory tested at an ISO 9001 certified facility by Versa Valves, so you can trust all parts made by this manufacturer. See below for part functionality and warranty details:

How to Operate: To manually operate this valve, the solenoid must be electrically de-energized and the air spring section depressurized by depressing the palm button (this button is spring loaded and will reset itself). To pressurize port ‘B’ and exhaust port ‘A,’ move the hand lever toward the valve body. To pressurize port ‘A’ and exhaust port ‘B’, move the hand lever away from the valve body. To block all valve ports, move the lever midway between the two pressured positions noted above. The valve will remain in any one of the set 3 positions until either the lever is manually re-positioned or solenoid is energized.
