Question fresh water tank drip help

Just finished a week of dry docking, but got a surprise when I went to check my fresh water level. it was almost empty. Under the mh I found the fresh water tank drain dripping out of the drain tube. I tried opening and shutting the valve but couldn't get it to stop. We got by with a little help from the creek we were camped by.(We boiled the water and besides if I get giardia again I could stand to loose a few pounds)

Any one have this happen before? I am home now and flushed it out but it still drips. I see there is an access panel by the elbow coming off the drain. I would appreciate any advice, thanks.

My motor home is a 2000 Winnebago Journey....

Sounds like it might be time to change the valve or find something to use as a plug in the end of the drain tube.

Not sure if this will help, check the drain valve if it is like mine you got to turn it really hard to keep it from dripping, Good Luck.
