Low Point Drain Valves

I have 2 of my fresh water system valves that have succumbed to years of use and no longer seal fully. They are neat little in line pull valves for low point and fresh water tank drain. The valves have PEX connections, 1/2". Would like to replace them with similar design, but just can not find them. Any suggestions? Tried pexsupply.com, most of the RV web sites, quite a few searches with no luck. On a side note, I am (other than being a few bricks shy of a load) moving the kitchen from the middle of cabin (21' gulfstream) to replace the back corner bed. Useless too small bed and would rather have the added living space up front. Will end with all the plumbing in the back along with all the drains. And before you ask, I did do a weight analysis, actually coming out lighter without the mattress and framing.

Any advice will be most appreciated, along with any critique - please be kind - on the kitchen move.

Greg, Karen and Clemmy (golden retriever).

All the usual home remodel warnigs apply. Know what's in the floor and walls before cutting through, know what supports weight and what doesn't, etc.

Reading up on home remodel tips during your planning stage may save you some problems.

Dear sc3283,

I would have replied earlier but was busy picking up my "dumb arse" award. In this case made an assumption and jumped to the inevitable wrong conclusion. 50 cents, four o-rings and 5 minutes later, two leaky valves no longer leaked.

Many thanks!
