What size is that wing nut valve you used? I like this idea better than the all brass one. Thanks!

Not sure the size, but it had a #10 stamped on it.. The OD of the threads where just a bit smaller than the ID of the hole(on the inside) of the nylon plug

My brass plug might be 5 years old. When I purchased my TT 2 years ago ( it's a 2010) it had a brass plug.

1st two mods on my 2011 were to the Atwood water heater.
Added an adjustable thermostat, and a brass drain plug w/petcock.
No problems thru 5 seasons now.

Can someone just make one for me?? I hate the nylon plug and I can't ever seem to get it on and off. Relented to just destroying it at the end of the season to drain the HW tank, replacing it with a new one the next year. I like the brass valve inserted into the nylon plug so you avoid the anode/different metals ordeal.

1/2"?
