Need help with missing drain valve

My 2015 nitro lost the drain valve for the fresh water tank. The whole valve disappeared today, leaving just the hose hanging down, and of course no water in the tank. No idea why it fell off - rock impact??? I have seen ideas posted on this site for a more substantial replacement. Would appreciate any ideas...

Go to Lowes or Home Depot and in plumbing dept your looking for a slip on "shark bite" fitting with a ball/lever valve. Made in different diameters for different size pex and pvc lines. Yours is probably standard 1/2 inch. Just square away the end of the line with a tubing cutter and the fitting just basically slips on. Will be water tite, and now you have a valve to open/close the line. Very easy to install.
Go to Lowes web site, and punch in part # 254909, 1/2" brass push fit in line ball valve. It will give you an idea of what you need.
There are cheaper plastic valves, but this is what I've got on all my drain lines.
