Anode Rod replacement 27hfs, Suburban SW6DE

I have some confusion about which replacement rod to buy for our 2012 27hfs. Suburban Model #SW6DE. I believe the replacement part # is 232767? 9 1/2? Not sure whether it is magnesium or aluminum or if it matters. Could someone clarify and confirm if I have the right part # for the replacement.

Thanks

Magnesium is preferred. You can get them at most any local RV parts desk and
lots of online places also sell them.

Also, just so you know- the rod looks pretty bad before it actually needs replacing.
The Magnesium can be over 75% gone before you really need to change it.

See the photos in this post--Anode facts and FAQs

My anode rod looks pretty good except for right by the screw in part where it's only about a third is left. Would it break off at the thin part and fall in the WH?

That thin part is steel and won't fall off.
