That was done by the autodeleter, not a mod. I can`t even spell my hometown or it will be partially deleted.

Found it. Looks like the picture. Not hard to get to at all. Looks like thread sealer or tape on the threads.

I guess the reason that I have never had a problem with a brass valve in an aluminum fitting is that I always wrap the brass in teflon tape before installing it. Have put a brass valve in every one of the five units we have had over the years, and never had a problem or leak.

You could buy a nylon bushing and still put a brass T-handle drain valve in it if you wish.

I worked at a plant that made air con tubing and heater pipe for cars. Once a machine had run brass tubing you couldn't use it for aluminum tubing. If one tiny shaving of brass gets embedded in the aluminum tubing, it will eat a hole in it eventually.
Yup, for a few moments I had given it a thought then decided nope I'll stick with the nylon plug. Bought a couple extra nylon plugs and plumber sealing tape and keep them in my TT.

Mine has a low point drain on the bottom of the camper for the hot water also, so luckily I don't have to mess with the plug.

I have a couple of low point water drains at the bottom of mine. How do I tell if one is for water heater?

Look insde the trailer where your low point drains poke throught the floor then follow them back to the nearest faucet. The one that goes to the left handle on the faucet is the hot water.
