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?
