I have A 2007 rockwood signature ultralight 8314ss.
need some info how often do you change the anode and what kind do you use aluma or magnesium?

Your better off asking with the make/model of the hot water heater then the camper. If you have an anode and not a plug I believe that's a Suburban hot water heater. Anode life depends on how often it's wet and quality of water. Suburban says to replace when it's 3/4 gone. Atwood's do not require a sacrificial anode.

This anode rod has been used 2 camping seasons, and has plenty of life left.

On a Suburban water heater, it takes a 1 and 1/16th inch socket for the anode rod/drain plug.
