I did a very similar mod to my old 5er and to our current TT. Except I utilize heater hose, but still used a nylon fitting in the water heater. I never have to deal with the plug again.

I have camped for probably close to 40 years and kept one unit as long as ten years. never had to replace a water heater plug and never used dope. Never leaked. I drain after every trip using a socket wrench. Seems to work well for me. We go out at least once a month so the plastic plug gets a lot of workout. Just don't over tighten. I must be living a charmed life. I'm getting ready for some cooler weather. Almost a 100 every day down here in south georgia. We are not even going camping the month of August!
