Use something like PB Blaster first (penetrating oil) - Let it soak for a bit. Then tap on it to try and loosen it up. Then if possible use an impact and socket to try and remove it. Far less stress placed on the housing this way. You can try a bit of heat - a heat gun will work.

Also, do these to screws need to come out to remove the wh? Sorry for all the questions, this is completely new to me.

30# should be enough, I sure wouldn't go over 50#

Yes, and all around the outside unless you have room inside to pull it inside, otherwise, it will have to come out from the outside.

If this is that big of a deal to remove then it means it's been in there a looooong time.
How was tank ever drained?
I remove my anode rod almost every trip to drain tank.

I'd hate to see what you find if you get it removed.

I know I'm spending your money,but with the issues you're having with this WH and having to pull it out anyway,why not just go ahead and replace it?

Just my opinion.

Repair first, replace later if repair fails. Maybe he should just replace the whole trailer?

Some of us po' folk don't have unlimited funds.
