2004 Trillium Outback Drain Plug for Water Tank?

When I was flushing out my water tank yesterday I went to turn the drain plug/cock at the front of the trailer and the small tab on top broke off. It's plastic and very crazed. I'm afraid to use pliers to turn it as the whole thing might just disintegrate.

Where can I obtain a new one? Or is the a better set-up I could use for replacement?

Thanks for any info. I can send a photo, if needed.

Hi Barb, welcome to the forum. Hard to tell without a picture but I suspect it's a plastic 1/4 turn ball valve available at most hardware stores for a couple bucks. Raz

Thanks Raz. That might do the trick depending on the dimensions. I'm trying to get loaded for my first trip in the trailer leaving tomorrow morning with a group and don't have time to take a photo or go shopping on a Sunday but will look into it when I return. Just to upgrade I'd like to get away from the plastic and go with brass. I'll see what I can find.
Thanks again.

If it's threaded you will need a thread sealant such as Teflon tape as well. Have a great first trip. Raz

Thanks Theresa! Fair warning.... I guess I'm glad it happened here at home.
Hope to meet up with some of you folks at a meet somewhere - maybe next year.
