We leave ours out too over the winter and flush the tank. I would reuse that anode, as i stated before, the wear rate on yours, it should last for years.
I've heard varying views on the tape, but i was under the impression that it needed direct metal to metal contact with the tank to be of any use as a sacrificial rod....but i might have misunderstood that, but it makes sense.
