Low Point drain replacements?

Howdy!
Ok.. so, I see I need to REPLACE the Low Point Drain petcock valves. Apparently damaged by road debris...

I was able to open both.. but, while drained and blown clear of water, Carpe' Diem!

How have my fellow 34' owners done this? I can't seem to get enough 'bite' with a combo wrench and the shoulder of the petcock is too shallow for a '6 point' socket to seat properly..

Thanks!

If yours are like mine, you have to get access to the other side of the metal pan.

Any other input about doing this replacement? guess I have to raise and properly secure the AS and remove rear wheel so I can get underneath.

On my '93, the valves are inside the closet. Only the piping sticks out underneath the trailer.
