Use a Shark Bite fitting. Brass valves at Home Depot have Shark Bite fitting on one end. Shark Bite would slip over the end

I did the same thing (shutoff valves on the low point drains) but had a different reason. I use my Georgetown 327DS in below freezing temperatures and didn't like the idea of water freezing in the exposed drain pipe. I cut both drain lines inside the plumbing compartment and installed the valves there. Before using the rig in cold weather conditions, I check the drains to make sure there's no water in them. At the end of a winter trip, there's no problems opening the drains to winterize the plumbing system.

I also added an electrical outlet and 250W of roofing heater strip to the plumbing compartment to prevent everything from freezing. I've had no freezing problems with outside temperatures dropping to around 15F at night. The remote thermometer I have in the plumbing compartment says that the temperature in there stays close to 40F when it's cold and the heating strip is working.

Yes this is the way i did it too, cheaper than brass, might want to care a spare valve in case a wayward rock bust one
