Plastic Drain Valve

I am on my second Airstream and both had plastic drain valves that broke. I know this is a common problem. Here is a permanent solution, about $25. total and will not break again. I would always rather spend a little more and know I won’t have to replace again.

I wish I had known about 6 months ago. Thanks for posting this. If mine breaks, I'm getting one of these.

Great tip!

Is there a reason that the manufacturer doesn't use higher end parts on our "high end" units?
