Mine sticks once in a while but I just lift turn it and try to reseal it. If it doesn't work the first time try try again. There is also a wire pin in mine but I have no idea what its for.

Hi...

I do not think it is anything that can be tightened as it seems to be just a pull valve with an o rig. I have not looked close enough nor done this, but you may be able to take the pull part out, it is seems like just a notch stop with a with like a wire clip as the stopper, and see how it seals. If it is just an o ring, maybe just replace it or add Vaseline to it.

As far as where to get one, sorry, no help their. Worst part is that, at least mine is, is that they are crimped onto the line. I still think though you may be able to remove the lift up part to repair.

DRAIN TANK FIRST Also remember that if something goes wrong, and you can not get it back in, you will have no way to fill the tank. So look it over first.

These are just my thoughts on this. Do with it what you may. I have not done the above. Just thoughts on what I may do if I had the issue.

Those are your valves when winterizing your coach, you drain the water lines through those valves. There is not much to those little valves. Take a close look at them or it and you will find that all it is, is a pull type plug with a O ring with a wire clip. It might just need a little twicking or replace the O ring.

I just had to replace one of those valves. They can not be tightened. I replaced mine with a plug. Only need to open it to winterize and de-winterize. The plug works fine and available at hardware or plumbing stores for a few bucks
