Are we overthinking this? I just take out the plug, let it drain down the side, and wipe it up when done. Put a new plug in wrapped with teflon tape when done so it doesn't leak, I think they're about a buck each. Pretty simple.

I think you are on to something. I usually take mine out once or twice a year to drain the water heater, replace the plug, and have never had a problem with leaks. That's without teflon tape.

Yes, it's a plastic hex head... I was told to release the pressure valve and then drain the water every time we finish going on a trip. Does that seem right?

I wasn't told to, but it's what I do, thats the reason for the P-cock, half turn and drain. I do take it out at spring get-ready to de-scale the tank.
