Fresh water tank drain piece

We always drain the tank at the end of a trip, by pulling UP on the "T" for the drain. Pushing it back in - as we were ready to fill the tank - the "T" broke. This is a picture of the piece that broke off.


Does anyone have any ideas for replacing?

If it's the piece on the end of a threaded rod, any camping store should have one. Like this maybe?

I am sure it is/was a mad stroke of luck that the RV industry uses standard size fittings for the most part.

The picture I posted was from a Winnebago site but there was no information on where to get them.

A couple of 90 degree elbows and a couple of 1/2 inch ball valves with some fittings you could replumb it easy enough.

Lowes or Home Depot will have what you need.

They will have PEX valves, use them, not PVC.

Use Shark Bites

Buy Shark Bite Connections for the pex pipe in your camper. It makes it easy and quick to repair and replace. They are expensive, but they work, and are reusable, which is sometimes very convenient. Then you can use quality ball valve that won't ever break.
