Your dealer will have them. And most camping supply stores, like Camping World, will also have them. Probably eben Amazon, if you have the make and model number, although I'd bet it is a standard size.

I have 2 spares I bought at my local hardware store. I think I paid 50 cents apiece for them. I coat the threads on mine with a little pipe dope, seems to "lubricate" them a little and seal better. I'm still on the original one after 3 years and I drain the water heater after every trip.

Many pipe dopes aren't compatible with plastic. Be sure to read the label.

Amazon.com: Atwood (91857) 1/2" Drain Plug Kit, (Pack of 2): Automotive

I picked a pack of these up for preventative measures. My original plug still works though it's a bit chewed up from when I tried to use channel locks to remove it.

Yep. Had one blow out on me being in a rush and forgot to upen the pressure relief first before removing the plug. Shot about 30' out in the grass...bout never found that thing.
