We have a 1995 Xplorer 230 on a Dodge body. It has an Atwood gas water heater. No matter what I do it leaks at the plastic drain plug. I have partially screwed in and put in almost all the way. I have used Teflon tape and plumbers putty. I replaced the plug 4 times too. Nothing stops the dripping. Any ideas please.

Tank threads corroded maybe?

On our past travel trailer I replaced the plastic (nylon?) plug with metal - then eventually, because it was so awkward to get a wrench on the plug due to nearby gas piping, I replaced the plug with a valve for use when draining - no more plug to remove every year.

I'm wondering if you mat do better with a meta plug and teflon tape?
