Fresh water drain valve

I have a slow leak from my fresh water drain valve (the valve located in the driver's side wheel well). It looks like this valve is attached by two screws for easy replacement, but is that really so?

If the leak is from the spout, try opening it and closing it again to see some small pisce of debris may have kept it from cloding completely.

If the leak appears to be from the fitting, try tightening the hose clamp.

Thanks, all. I have tried opening and closing it a few times - I will try it some more.

John - Great thread, thanks! I'll revisit that thread later.

I am about to take off on a trip out west so this repair may wait until I return. The drip is just onto the ground.
