Do they all have them?

Do all camper water heaters come with the rods installed ? Just bought a work and play 30 WRS. Winterized it today did not notice it. I drained the water heater.

How did you drain the WH if you didn't remove an anode rod?

If your hot water heater is an Attwood it's plastic and does not have an anode. If it's a Suburban, it's a metal tank and has one. Sounds like you have an Attwood.

Must be a plastic tank. The drain plug is plastic but looked like it was screwed into metal. I will have to look it over thank you for the info

Actually I believe the Atwood is ceramic lined therefor no anode is needed.

just an FYI

I'm sure you're right about it being ceramic lined. I just knew that corrosion was not a factor. Thanks for the clearification!

Ok Turbo... Being a snowmobiler for many years and a camper for the last 6 years, your location sparks my interest when I see your posts here. Where are you from? I'm in Camanche, formerly from Sabula. Riding the lakes and backwaters around here for many years. Still riding a ZRT800. Spent many winter days in the UP and N Wisc. We camp all the time at Sunset Lakes. Oh and to keep with the thread... winterizing this weekend and pulling the anode.

I live about 35 miles east of you on hiway 30 in lowden.
I also run the radar run on ice in follets in your backyard.
I'm also the president of the Eastern Iowa sno-riders in Clinton and Cedar county.
I run a 2012 f1100turbo in the limited edition white orange. "With seat heater"


And I'm with you winterizing this weekend and my anode rod has been out for 3 weeks. and it will stay out till may.
Taking camper to Cheyenne next week to finish a few things that wasn't fixed in goshen at the rally.
