I'm going into year 3 with the original anode and it is in similar shape to the OP's anode. After inspecting it, I put it back in for another year.

Unfortunately there are a lot of dealers out there that tell the buyer wrong when they do the walk through or don't tell them things they need to know. They hire a lot of seasonal workers in this area and almost completely shut down for the winter here. They need retired people that have campers walk new buyers through and to have their own internet question answer section. I don't think the guy that walked us though new much about anything except the basics and the guys that winterized ours there were idiots had antifreeze in water heater, not much looked like they realized it and drained it out after. Replace a good anode because of the antifreeze was on it, got tank cleaned out but didn't want to trust cleaning anode. By the way your anode looked good, have a good summer.

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.

Sounds like distilled water. So clean cannot conduct electricity, no anode consumption!
