Just my opinion but you should tie up that loop hanging down. Easier to do that than replace the whole thing when it gets caught on something. I went through the belly of my 27hfs and made sure the lowest points were the frame and axels. Everything else is above that.

Where can one get those little caps for the drains? I've lost the one off the tank drain.

Also, do I need to drain the entire system each time I move the trailer?

I only plan to drain mine at the end of the season. I do bring the fresh water down to about 1/3 unless I plan not to have hook ups. Not sure about the caps. They look pretty close to the garden hose size but I haven't tried to know for sure
