Video Transcript for Camco RV Drain Valve Review

Today on our camper we'll be taking a look at and installing the Camco RV Drain Valve for 1/2 inch or 3/8 Diameter Drain Hose, Part Number CAM22243. This drain valve lets you easily drain your RV's fresh water tank. It's made out of a durable plastic construction, so you can ensure it's going to last a long time. It's got an 1 1/4 360 degree valve on it, to make it easier for opening and closing. Now that I've gone over some of the features I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. The very first thing we needed to make sure of is that our tank is empty.

Then we can take our old one off, as you can see it's all messed up and we're going to be replacing it. You may or may not be able to get it off by just twisting it. We're just going to go ahead and bring a wrench in here, just to give us a hand. All right, I grab my new drain valve, as you can see, it's got 2 sizes. We'll need to cut off our 3/8 portion. Now you can see I cut it off here, another good reason as to why you would cut it off is because you don't want the other nozzle to be above our water level.

You will need to provide your own threaded seal tape, I've got some right here. All right, that looks pretty good. All right, then we can get that started on. You want to be sure not to over tighten, if you need to grab a wrench and give it another half turn, I would say that would be about good enough. That's going to complete our look and install of the Camco RV Drain Valve for 1/2 inch or 3/8 Diameter Drain Hose, Part Number CAM22243..

This drain valve lets you easily drain your RV's fresh-water tank. The valve has 1/2" and 3/8" diameter male NPT thread for use with vinyl tubing. Plastic construction is durable.

Fresh water tank drain valve fits perfectly as replacement for original which has deteriorated over the years. Took two minutes to remove original and install this new valve. Added arrow to indicate direction for on/off. Teflon tape nice to have, but not needed, as the tank is gravity feed, no water pressure in tank.

Replacement drain valve is still working great - expect it to last longer than the original 5 years. Glad that E-Trailer carries these kind of repair parts.

I have ordered rv parts from etrailer several times and they have had what I needed at a good price with reasonable shipping charges. The service has been excellent - on one occasion, when they made a mistake about having it in stock, they emailed me to make me aware of the situation and when it did ship, they went the extra mile and didn't charge me for shipping. Thanks E-Trailer!



by:

I tried a ball valve that was really hard to turn. These work much easier.



by:

This is a solid product. Installation is quick and simple. It works exactly the way it is suppose to; when the valve is closed, no water gets through; when the valve is open, it drains the tank quickly.

  • Drain Valve Compatible With a Water Heater To Not Allow Water To Drain Down The Side Of The RV
    The Camco RV Drain Valve # CAM22243 is not designed for use on the hot water tank. The 3/8" # CAM11683 and 1/2" # CAM11703 drain valves are the only style drain valves we carry for compatible with hot water heaters. These do not have a barb on it like the drain valve above. If you select one of these drain valves you will need to come up with a collector to drain the water into a hose and off the side of your camper. Depending on how your drain is positioned on your water heater you may...

  • Recommendations For Replacing RV Water System Components
    I drew up a little diagram of how RV water systems are typically designed and attached it below to make it easier for you to see each component. I believe what you're referring to is simply just the fresh water tank drain, which you could use part # CAM22243 to tie into your tank and allow it to drain. The Anti-Siphon valve # A01-0141VP you were looking at simply connects to a Valterra Hydroflush # F02-4100 for you to hook up a garden hose and clean out your black tank. For the fresh...
