Water Drain Plug

Hey All,
Do you all know where I can find the white rubber piece to the drain plugs? I noticed after de-winterizing that my hot water drain didn't have the rubber insert. You'll notice one of the plugs has one the other (hot water plug) doesn't. Where can I purchase one of these?

Any good hardware store or any of the big box stores should be able to fix you up.

Is the rubber seal still on the low point drain pipe?

I lost one of mine last spring when I de-winterized, had a 5-gal pail under the low point drains and forgot to retrieve the seal before I flushed out the AF. I taped it up with teflon plumbing tape.

If I were to take a wild guess...the plumbing or garden departments would be a good place to start?

Replace the caps wh valves then you wonít have to deal with it in the future - just open the valves to drain.

As long as you are off buying parts, I would recommend you get 1/4 turn valves to install on the LPDs instead of the end caps. Makes draining much easier and no more lost washers

I installed quarter turn valves with hose bibs on the end. So now I have a hot and cold outside hose connection on the camper (can be used while hooked up or dry using the pump).

I replaced my low point drain caps with these that I fabricated out of some 1/2 inch PEX and a couple if 1/4 turn valves. I had to remove the factory rubber seal (what you are missing) because the new threaded fittings came with one. You don't necessarily have to build up the valve assemblies, but you might get away with using just the rubber cone pulled from one of those fittings. I got everything at Home Depot.

If you really want those same gaskets, go to a hardware store and buy the least expensive stainless steel braided lavatory supply tubes you can. Pull the gaskets out of the large (1/2”) nut on the supply lines and use them. That is what those gaskets are.

I like this idea, how are you guys attaching the valves to the drain tubes?

Water Drain Plug

I lost one of those gaskets and couldnít find a replacement. I ended up just getting a rubber washer that fit snugly in the cap and that made a good seal, and cost maybe 30 cents. Iíd like to do the valve mod but I havenít been able to find one that turns easily. My drains are in an awful spot. I can get a cap off with one hand but all the valves Iíve seen in-store would take 2.

The drain line stubs are standard 1/2 inch plumbing fittings. Your local home center or plumbing supply will have everything you need.
I used this:

You'll need crimping tools for the PEX, might be able to rent something. You could also try finding similar stuff using barbed fittings with polyethylene tubing and hose clamps.
