Leaking fresh water drain valve

We have a 1995 Jayco Eagle Series travel trailer. We noticed after we filled the fresh water tank that water was leaking out the drain valve underneath the camper in a nice steady stream. After 2 nights all the water was gone from the tank. The valve is in a semi-easy spot to get to. We tried tightening the valve and untightening the valve a little. Nothing worked. The valve looks great and nothing is leaking in or around the valve itself; which is why we don't really want to take the valve out. We have found that in older campers if it isn't actually "broke", don't take it apart as it can lead to even bigger problems. The parts and pieces are used to being in those spots after so many years! Any thoughts here? Could we maybe put something in the drain underneath the camper and clamp it off so it doesn't leak out?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
