Well, I'll be darned; didn't know such a thing even existed!

I'm always reminding my wife that a RV, or a Harley, is nothing but the equivalent of a "Barbie Doll" for "grown up" boys. The initial cost is just the beginning, it is the accessorizing that is really expensive!

Questions

So it is. I'm in the process of rigging an HDTV antenna into the unit to get TV weather/news when we are away from the stations. I have an antenna, have hooked it up and discovered that it works, pulling in stations over 30 miles away. Now I have to rig the trailer so that it's quick and easy to put up and take down the antenna. Then I think we're home not quite free. Got about $45 invested in it.

It looks like removal of the anode is the only way to drain the hot water tank...
Make sure that you open the pressure relief valve on the top of the heater before removing the anode or you will get a refreshing bath...I drain the heater after every trip - the water in the heater can get pretty foul smelling if it sits there for a long time.

Question about the H

About that Hott Rod replacing the anode -

Since the anode serves a purpose as a "neutralizer", if you switch to a Hott Rod, what happens to that neutralizing? Is it handled by the Hott Rod, or lost?

The Hott Rod acts as the anode. Since it is stainless steel you need to clean it off periodically with something like CLR. Or you can buy a replacement heating element as necessary.
