Hey ependy. Go to your closest big box hardware store.Look in the plumbing dept.,they should have a easyout made for plastic fittings. Real cheap and made from aluminum. Will work like a charm for getting that out. I have one and use it all the time in my business to take out broken plastic fittings in steel,brass and cast parts. It goes from just a little under 1/2" to a little more than 3/4".

Originally, when we started the planning back in August it was going to be the Motorhome garage. Due to weather delays and some size / design changes from us, the Motorhome will never even get to sit in it.

Thank you 05CrewDually and youroo. That appears to be exactly what I'm after. I'm here at LazyDays, so I'll just pay whatever.

It is confirmed in these posts by Lou and wmtire:
Suburban SW6DE water heater problems

Looks like I have a plan of attack for tomorrow. Thanks so much, I had overreaction visions of buying a new water heater!

Not for me. That bad boy has a lot of usable life left. I check it fairly regularly and it's pretty slow to be eaten away.

Here's the chart from Suburban's manual on life/usage:
