From all the sad stories I've heard from not being able to fill to having a hundred gallons of water on board you cannot use all due to Sporlan valves... I'm glad my bus doesn't have ANY..KISS! A Sporlan valve involves plumbing and electrical so you know it will fail.

Sporlan valves are for convenience and/or where the design did not allow access. Personally if I had Sporlan valves in my couch I'd not only carry a rebuild kit (or just a new vavle) I'd also plumb in a ball valve so I could by-pass any failed Sporlan so I could continue to operate and fix the issue in my free time when it's not an emergency. Just saying.....
