You can pick up a two pack of of the plastic ones just about anywhere. I bought a pack and threw them in my "parts" drawer in the TT. Did that shortly after I removed the plug with the tank under pressure and it shot out into the lawn (I didn't know the tank was under pressure and didn't bother to lift the relief valve
) I figured "some day that plug is going to strip out or break".
My plan is to tap a valve into the plastic plug. This way I don't have to worry about dissimilar metal corrosion (regardless of the likelihood of it actually happening) and my plastic plug has never leaked. I don't tape it, but I carry tape in the aforementioned "parts" drawer.
