Valve stem handles

The valve handles that connect to the actual valves in my water control panel have stripped out from repetitive turning. (Hot water heater control valves on 2012 Pinnacle). Have had to remove the "handles", and turn the brass valve stems manually, with pliers. This isn't fun. Local RV dealer wanted me to spend 24 bucks for all new valve kits - and I have no idea what they would charge to r&r the three valves.

All I need is NEW PLASTIC KNOBS - not the entire valve! Anyone know where I can get these plastic handles?

Could you buy the kits for $24 and just use the handles from the new valves? Hang on to the rest of the valve as a 'just in case' item.

Sure could ..... but it seems crazy to spend $24, when what I need should only cost 25 cents. Nonetheless, that may be the only solution .... which I rejected when I had the new kits in my hands. Thanks for the reply!

I would try one of the big box stores, Home Depot, etc. they carry many types of handles in plumbing, you may get lucky.

.... and don't forget Ace and other hardware stores. I'm often amazed by what they have in there.

I have no clue how special the knobs and valves are on your Pinnacle. It might turn out they can be found in many places. Good luck!
