Dash Valve
Non-Bendix
Knock-off Valve
Stay with the company that introduced the MV-3® dash valve over 20 years ago. Comprehensive, ongoing testing of knock-off
valves purchased right off the shelf compared to the industry-leading Bendix® MV-3® dash valve shows that trying to save a
few bucks on non-genuine replacement parts could result in air leakage, trailer lock-up, truck roll-away, or even worse . . .
