Crusader 295 outside water valve leaking

the hot water valve is leaking under the trailer, I'm assuming this is the drain valve for the hot water (red).

USUALLY a valve has a packing gland and a simple turn of the nut on the top side of the valve fixes this issue however, don't seem to be a packing gland nut.

Am I missing something here or do I need to replace the valve?
Thanks!

I assume you are talking about the low point drain. If so, it'll be easier to cut it off and put on another. A sharkbite 1/4 turn valve will do it.

Try not twisting it so much. My cold water low point drips if twisted close as far as it goes. Back it off a touch and it is fine. Well it's not done but it no longer drips.
