I just picked up the Camco petcock that jasum mentioned above. Will install it in the Spring when the camper comes out of storage.

This is the one I bought:

https://www.amazon.com/Camco-11703-W...0d547d70a02d81

I haven't found an extension hose for it yet, but stand alone it sure beats that plastic bolt they came with.

I used one on a previous rig with a Atwood wh. See how small the drain hole is? I found that scale and crud would stop it up enough that it would not drain fully. I would remove it and flush the scale out regularly.

I attended a Atwood seminar years ago and they recommended NOT to use metal plugs. They said that the lining in the tank would be compromised.

I don't know, but I did not use mine but a few seasons.

Good question. No problems that I've seen so far, but it's too soon to give a long term report on it, in fact much too soon since I just installed it recently. Maybe ask the question on amazon. I didn't even think about that at all honestly.

You guys got me thinking now (didn't see Norty's reply at first).. Maybe the better approach is to just go to home depot and cobble together something out of a 1/2 inch threaded pvc adaptor into pex with a valve on the end. I don't like the idea of scale build up. I had to do something about that plastic plug arrangement.. little things like that drive me crazy.

I can't imagine using that! Only a half turn and have to re-set. Plain old socket with extension works great on my unit without any problems.

As far as the electrolysis issue, wouldn't a couple wraps of the teflon tape help to minimize that?
