Hot Water Drain Valve

Approximately six to eight months ago there was a post that included a description and list of parts for a fast drain for the hot water tank. The idea was to lighten the load in front of the wheels as well as to keep the water in the tank fresh. There is a chemical reaction that can occur when the water sits in the tank for a period of time (this happened twice with my old trailer). This person had sourced out the parts to replace the main drain bolt with a different bolt that includes a short hose. This makes it easy to drain the water anytime without removing the drain bolt. I wanted to follow up but now I can't find that post. Does anyone remember reading it and can point me to it?

I think there are two sizes?

I just use a pitcock type similar to an automotive radiator drain cock. This one no hose:

Another type that you could add a hose to:
