Fresh Tank Valve & JC

I have a 2018 GT. Well it finally happened, the handle on the cheap plastic valve used to drain the fresh water tank broke. I knew it was only a matter of time. I've seen several folks have replaced it with a brass valve.

I was curious if anyone has had their valve replaced at JC (under warranty of otherwise) and what they replaced it with. And how they replaced it.

Thanks!

I had mine replaced by the Airstream dealer in Chandler, AZ. They jacked up the trailer and cut an access hole in the tank shroud, replaced the line and the valve with an improved (??) plastic valve and put a removable cover over the access area. The labor was 2 hours...

A few years back, I had the waste tank vlave replaced in JC and they did the same process on the grey tank as the valve is hidden.

I was hoping someone observed how JC replaced the valve so I could mimic the process.
