Low point drains

I found these valves at Lowes and added them to my low point drains.

Those are nice. I lucked out and mine came with cheep plastic valves that I'm sure won't last long. You shouldn't ever have a problem with those ball valves.

Is there any risk of the weight of the handle opening the valve when your bouncing down the road?

We had those originally, then went with the really small stop valves mainly due to weight. While your putting valves, might as well add them to all sinks and toilet.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

This was under our silverback going to the outdoor kitchen. Made an aluminum bracket to minimize any movement and of course insulated this. This was originally a dumb design by cedar creek. Heated enclosed tanks and plumbing, except this which originally was all hard piped with no valves or insulation. Did this to isolate outdoor kitchen in winter and be able to isolate / drain rear half of coach.
