RV plumbing fittings??

We're proud owners of a new "empty nest" model trailer. I need a few plumbing fittings. Example- low point drains as well as fresh tank drain
are simply plastic pipe sticking out the belly with caps on them.
I want to add 1/4 turn plastic valves on all 3. Also there is a T fitting
in the water pump suction line but no valve in the line going to the
fresh tank. I figure the T is for winterizing but with no way to shut the
line from the fresh tank it's not gonna work. Need a 2 way valve in place
of the T.

I know a place like Home Depot has plumbing fittings but do they have
the kind we typically find on our RVs??

I am going to do this. I had bought a new supply line for my commode in the house, just for fun I took the cap or plug from the low point drain & it screws into the supply line (big end).
So I am going to get 2 unions or couplers, 2 supply lines (12 in.) & 2 of the valves & mount underneath at the edge where I can just bend over, open the valve and drain!
Hopefully all this will work as I picture it.
