I took out the nylon plug and installed a tap with a length of pex on the end so that when I drain my hot water tank the water shots away from the side of the trailer and does not dribble all over the sidewall. everything to make the change is available at Home Depot, just be sure to take in your nylon plug so you get the right sized tap

Yep that's what it was. Bought a socket today and drained the tank. Some of the other suggestions here look interesting to.

Thanks ... Tim

That`s good to know. Perhaps on the boats adding salt water to the equation made the difference in the corrosion factor.

Same experience using the brass replacement on a pop-up and now my 2nd TT over about 20 years. Not a spot of a problem. Easy to use. If they caused a problem, I doubt that virtually every Rv parts and camping stores carry them.

I like the plastic. Sort of a weak link to blow out if I get senile and forget to drain for the winter..
