Low point valve leak

Woke up this morning to the water pump cycling on and off. Come to find out, one of the low point valves is leaking and there doesn't appear to be enough room between the bottom of the tank and the valve to tighten or remove to install plumbers tape. Any suggestions? Click image for larger version

There is a 2 year warrantee on your rig, so let an Airstream Dealer solve the problem. You paid for that.

We had the same problem with our 2012 FC, only when I touched it , the whole thing fell off. I used JB Weld to seal the hole until I could take it to Jackson Center for a repair under warranty.
