What anode to get?

Hi. We accidentally threw out the old anode. My trailer is in storage and can save a trip over there. I have a Hyper Lite 19 HFS. Any one know what anode I need. I think the plug used a 3/4 or 7/8 socket, if that helps any. I don
t know what the water heater brand or model number is. I will take a look this week. Thanks

I read another post about the rods. That said the rod needs a 1 1/16 or so socket. Guess my post was shy on good info.

I would think before anyone can tell you what anode to purchase we would need to know which hot water heater you have.

If you use an anode rod...it has to be a Suburban WH....they are about 9 bucks at most RV stores...magnesium or aluminum....your choice. I use the magnesium and change it once a year.

Buy two they are inexpensive and will save you a trip when you need to change again.

I would replace it with the Magnesium rod. It will hold up better for water conditions, Yes the nut is 1 and 1/16" socket.

Hi I went to a hardware store and bought a regular anode rod for a regular water heater and cut it down to fit.I cut mine down to about 9"long It was pretty cheap and it will last longer than the tiny ones you get at the dealership its larger in diameter but it will last way longer. The base socket is the same size 1-1/16" too. I had the same one for more than 3 yrs. best wishes.

I think you can't go wrong because they are all the same, mechanically anyway. Just make sure it's for an RV water heater.
