Anode rod , without pressure relief--just open your faucets at the very least-- will shower you-not only with water, but-with lime scale bits and pieces; adding to your wet embarrasment complete with white specks left sticking to you after you dry out.

I've seen pics of a piece of wood lodged into someone's thumb while cutting with a table saw. I totally don't need these pics. :-)

I got that shower once. It was a good opportunity to clean my glasses!

I did something similiar. I drained my water lines then I used a small pump to remove all water, very little pressure (maybe 5 psi) and my anode rod flew out of my hand, no injuries except to the eggo

Had to tell you. New to the big campers never had hot water before, I did the same thing last year when I was winterizing our camper. It blew my socket and anode out, plus I got a cold shower. This year I let the pressure out first.
