This innovation also includes a new electric switch bank for raising or lowering the debris tank and tailgate and turning on or off the tank vibrator or sludge pump to be mounted anywhere on the truck. The Auto Valve System is compatible with front and rear AJV hose reel configurations and works with the belly pack remote control for operation of all functions. 800-382-8302;
