Fumoto valve for transmission drain plug?

Hello all,
I am preparing to change the transmission oil in my '08 with 95K miles on her. I dont know if the previous owner did a change on it or not.

My plan is to do a simple drain and fill and repeat that every few hundred miles until i get fresh clean oil coming out. However, i am not looking forward to removing the drain plug that often. I am wondering if anyone has fit a Fumoto valve to their transmission? I heard somewhere that the drain plug for the transmission is the exact same one as the engine oil drain plug. If so, perhaps i can use this Fumoto valve to ease things up quite a bit?

The relevant size for the Nissan Titan is the F103, or the F103N. Wondering if my assumtion that the drain plug is the same as engine drain plug is true?

If the drain plug on the transmission pan was out the side instead of on the bottom I would consider doing this. I'm a big fan of these valves. I have installed them on my engine oil drain as well as the radiator drain.

That's a good solution. There have been a number of times a fluid extractor would have come in handy.
I don't care for the nipple-less Fumoto drain valves. With the nipple I can attach a hose and then put the other end of the hose into the opening of my drain pan. I get zero splashing of fluids. Without the nipple you can't attach a hose and you'll get splashing.
