Rear air tank drain brass fitting.

On our motorhome the rear air tank drain is mounted on a bracket to the right of the hitch.
The drain consists of a brass valve, brass bushing and brass air line quick connect. The brass valve screws into the threaded bushing that is 1/4 in size on the interior of the bushing. The bushing goes through the mounting bracket attached to the motorhome and the quick disconnect for the air line screws into the other end of the bushing.
I had a sizable air leak there and found that the brass bushing is cracked.
Any body know where to get the brass bushing?
I have been to a RV dealer, Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware and a plumbing supply house. Lowes had a bushing but the one end is not threaded all the way through so that won't work and the outside threads on the bushing are different then the original so the mounting nut to secure it to the bracket won't work.
I bought the bushing and a coupler which will let me install the valve and air line quick connect but can't find a nut to fit the thread pattern to mount it to the bracket.
Any suggestions on where to get the correct bushing would be greatly appreciated. Maybe the REV group.

arcaguy,
I forgot to include that in my list. I did try a truck repair shop and they thought I would probably find it at a hardware store
Thanks for the reply though.

Hadn't thought of a auto parts store or hydraulics shop. I'll give them a try tomorrow.
Thanks.

It sounds like the "brass bushing" your describing is a "bulkhead fitting".
A picture would make it much easier to help you.

Does it look like this? https://www.anythingtruck.com/product/130-M317.html

CountryB,
The link you sent looks very close to the bushing with the mounting locking washer and nut. I will attempt to attach the photo of my old bushing.
I made the repair this morning with the parts I got at Lowes. I would have liked to fixed with one of the bulk head fittings you posted but how I did it is secure and doesn't leak. Thanks for the help.

Once you know what the thing is called, it's a lot easier to find it.

That's exactly it with locking washer and mounting nut. I will order that just in case. You never know.
I never would have come up with the proper name of it. Thanks for your research.
