Leaking Low Point Drain Valve

Good Morning to everyone out there in Airstream Land. I'm a newbie and I have a little problem. There's a leak on one of my low point drain valve and I can not remove valve to repair with plumbers tape. We are proud owners of a 25' 2016 International Serenity. It appears to be a simple fix if I could only remove the valve, but the cover for the tanks doesn't allow me rotate the valve. Is there anyone out there who knows the secret to removing this valve as we have places to go and things to do.

Unusual for these valves to leak because they stay closed almost all of the time. Perhaps you have some debris in there. Try back-blowing some air through it with the valve wide open, then close it.

Take the handle off the valve and then it will rotate.

Thanks for the help I turned the elbow and removed the handles replaced valves and so far so good.
Many Safe Miles to Everyone
