That's good to hear. Keep in mind that those drain spigots are pretty hopeless & their routing is very suspect. I had an 05 Safari in here a couple of years ago complaining about a drip on the bottom of the tank shroud. We removed the tank & discovered that the spin welded inlet fitting was half broken away from the tank. This allowed the tank to leak when it was relatively full. This was a very poorly welded fitting that caused this problem. We did however notice that draining the tank through the original spigot was very slow. Once the tank was removed, we discovered that the drain spigot was not lined up with the drain fitting in the tank. This allowed the vinyl tube that connected the two of them to become kinked...............really poor workmanship
Anyway, we replaced the fittings & realigned the pipes, using a pex ball valve & pex tubing, so now it drains really well.
