Old thread...I know. But I bought a 2008 used and the PO pointed out the "goop" that had been stuck onto the fresh water drain to stop a leak.
The drain valve was actually cracked.
This is a very common plastic part... replacements found at any/all RV stores... but what a cheasy valve!
I replaced it with a brass drain valve (also known as a METAL SILCOCK) and barb purchased at Home Depot. Look for a "flanged, brass, silcock" and a threaded "hose barb".
Permanent fix, with sturdy metal. The only thing making this the least bit difficult is the fact that the sheet metal support box for the tank has riveted ends. I drilled the rivet heads and popped the rivets off and removed the end of the sheet metal box.
I installed a short piece of PVC flexible hose from the tank to the brass barb (which I threaded into the drain valve) and mounted the end of the box back in place using common sheet metal screws. Now if I ever have to get back in there it's a simple screwdriver matter, but the brass drain valve will likely never need attention.
HOpe this helps.
Here's what the sillcock looks like. A hose bard threads into the backside of it and short hose connects to the tank.
