Has anyone ever fabricated a guard or mudflap to protect gray/black valves?

As in the title - anyone ever created some protection for their tank plumbing.

On my 2020 Flagstaff 21DS, the gray and black drains are right behind the rear wheel on the driver's side. After driving on gravel roads in the campground, they get caked with mud, etc. Once I started thinking that I might like to protect them from spray, I realized that they are kind at risk from a road hazard or tire failure.

I'm not sure I want to think about ripping off my black tank valve at freeway speeds...

I haven't gotten under there yet to see what my options are for attaching something, but in the meantime wanted to see if anyone else had already solved the problem.

My outlets are in front of my rig but I did create and add mudflaps to protect my rear jacks.

I took 2 pieces of angle made a 90. Attached the short end to the frame of the camper with bolts and the longer side I used to attach the flap. I got the flaps from Amazon.
