Default Need New Grey Water Valve Installed

My grey water valve has come completely off the top of the rectangular box on which it is mounted. Obviously the grey water tank has all leaked out and will not hold water. I'm traveling now and it appears to be more than just a campsite repair. I will be visiting friends in the Denver/Boulder area tomorrow for a week. Does anyone know of anyone in that area that could repair the valve? How big if a repair will this be? Thanks.

Oh God, now I have 2 problems; a bad valve and I can't figure out how to post an image. What it looks like is the valve was screwed to a plastic cap that was attached to the top of a rectangular housing. It seems as though that cap just came right off with the valve base still fully attached to it.

The square housing is the valve body.
The cap that came out is the end cap.
Is the valve manual or is it air powered?

The valve is air powered. That brings up another question. Can/would the new one be better if manually operated?

I will have access to tools and a pretty handy mechanic in Boulder if you think this is something that could be repaired in the driveway.

I have no idea how to post an image from my iPhone to this forum so I sent an email to you. Hope you can shed some hope on this. Thanks again.
