campingqueen, a lot of trailers already have that.
our '07 Roo has valves on our low point drains.
i was surprised to see other trailers not having them, cause our Roo isn't exactly a high-end trailer.

she has more experience with that stuff

my retirement life is getting easier !!!

Has anyone ever heard of or used "Blaster" garage door spray lubricant?
Leaves a dry, tack-free film that will not accumulate dust and dirt. A suitable replacement for grease. I was told by a RV fix it guy not to use spray white grease because it attracts dirt...to use silicone.

well, those are the valves to the outside low-point drains, it's just that they're located inside instead of hanging out on the outside.
i find it more convenient to drain them from the inside, instead of having to crawl under the trailer to drain them.
plus, they're less likely to freeze up in colder weather.

valves work great on all drains, low point water, fresh water tank, I have also installed a boiler drain valve on my water heater, makes draining and winterizing a snap

Hey Denny,
would love to add a valve to the water heater but have a suburban water heater with that stupid screw out anode.. that's where the water drains out. You would think they could come up with a better design after all these years.

campnqueen, I do not use the anode rod, I really do not know the purpose for it. the 3/4" NPT boiler drain valve I used came from Home Depot located in the plumbing section. to screw the valve in the drain hole I removed the burner for easy access, fairley simple to do

Denny,
What? you don't know WHAT the anode is for? and don't use one? REALLY? You MUST have lots of money to spend... because you will be replacing you water heater sooner than later.

The anode rod or sacrificial anode is the important component part with only one purpose; to protect metal tank from corrosion.

Water Heater Anode Rod - Sacrificial Anode Replacement

I have used some stuff called "PB Blaster" but I do not recommend it as an alternative to silicone cause it is used to break free those rusted bolts and such - Penetrating Lube.


I did look at blastergroup.com and found what you are wanting -
Dry (Teflon) lube Blaster - Dry Lube


I have used some of there stuff and it seems to be ok - wouldnt hurt to try a can and see what it does for ya

I found Blaster garage door spray at Home Depot yesterday. Home Depot has a line of Blaster products I've not seen before
