What Brand Water Heater

Someone asked me if I had a Suburban or Atwood water heater because I should change my Anode Rod since it’s been 2 years. I looked all over the water heater and couldn’t find anywhere where it says it’s Suburban or Atwood? I do not have any manuals, so 2 questions:
1. Does it make any difference what brand I have and just change with the standard anode rod like Camco’s?
2. Does anyone know what brand I have…it’s a 2015 Georgetown 270s?
Thanks for any help.

Yes it makes a difference which brand.
Generally, Suburban uses an anode rod and Atwood doesn't.

Does anyone know if Georgetown’s use one brand over the other or do Georgetown’s just have random water heaters? If so, how would someone find out? Thanks

I have a 2015 with a suburban. I took the cover off and looked inside to the right, and on the "frame" just inside where the cover goes is a sticker. It has model #, serial # etc...Click image for larger version

Thanks for your post, going on 2 years and haven't changed my anode Rod yet. Guess it's time.

Well they can last quite a long time depending on your water chemistry.

Change it. . After 2 years you will have a hell of a time trying to get it out.

Good point, had it out once to winterize after year one, but no need to cause myself trouble.

Taking out the rod is how we drain our hot water heaters for winterizing.. Does someone know another way to drain the tank??
