Is this the model that has the mineral collector rod behind the drain screw and how often do we have to change that element

Yes, yours will have the anode rod attached to the drain plug. It needs to be replaced when it has significantly deteriorated from its original size. Likely it will last a couple of camping seasons. Inspect it when you drain the water heater for other reasons, like winterizing, etc. I changed mine this spring after two full seasons and it may have lasted this year also, but it was easier to replace when doing de-winterizing. We camp several weekends a month, plus longer trips and I don't drain the water heater between trips, so spring was the best time for me to fix it and forget it for the year.
