Installed brass turn valves on my low point drains, much easier!

I got sick of using two wrenches to take off the low point drains to empty out my water on my 2015 Georgetown 351DS. So I installed these nice quarter turn valves. Makes the job MUCH easier for winterizing, or sanitizing the water system.



It is standard PEX 1/2" plumbing. I had to add extensions to each one because once I cut off the old valves, there wasn't much room up there.

Great idea!! I think I will do the same. I have a guestion... I see 4 valves...on my 2015 335 I have only found two drains..one for the fresh and one for water lines. Must be missing some, however, I had no issues after winterizing... blow out method.

Yeah, this one has four drains, plus the fresh water overflow. Not sure exactly which goes with what. But this was a pretty easy job and will make my life a lot easier.

During my PDI. that's the only drains they pointed out. I have the pex tools and clamps, so just need valves.

Looks great. Could the clamp be secured using c-clamps to hold the drain tube to the brass valve. I do not have the pex tools or clamps.

I have done that to every camper I have had. Only I don't cut the line I just screw in the valve where the plug goes. That way I can take them with me when I trade in the unit to upgrade.

Pex doesn't work with hose clamps. Sorry ...

Very nice install. Would something like this be easier?

I think it would be just as good but you need to add male thread adapters being the outlets are all female thread. I may do this myself for my water tank drain.

Yes and they are in the same location as this is found in your hardware store of preference (male to male etc.). Very inexpensive.
