    Well I went and picked up my Niagara from the dealers today so I could get a few things done before our camping season starts. (It was there for a new roof which is not going to be delivered for another six weeks <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Angry">) I already did this to my Sun Valley so It only took a few minutes to do. No more getting on my knees and reaching under the PUP to drain the tank. Added a hose fitting in case I need to attach a hose (Thanks He Ruide).
    The old drain:

    Built for comfort...not speed.

    Looks good and the only thing you might of wanted to do was keep the fitting that you had and just leave it in the open position, and use your new mod. That way if something would come up from your tire on your way to the CG and break you tube you could get under the pup and turn the shut off. Then redo your mod after your trip and still be able to use you water for that trip.

    The old drain is going into the onboard parts bin and I plan on adding a drain cap and some pipe insulation to finish the mod. Thanks for the tips and suggestions.

    I think I might have to redo my drain mod now. Yours looks much nicer.
