I took a length of PVC pipe and put a coupling on the end. I then cut a notch on the coupling to fit over wing on valve. Reaches and works great

In this two valve configuration the white valve is a re-direct to route the supply cold water through the TT hot water lines, and the black valve prevents that flow from entering the hot water heater. If you are winterizing make sure the first thing you do is drain the hot water heater. If your TT is equipped with a Suburban water heater leave the anode rod, which is attached to the 1 1/16" drain plug, out during winter storage. Plug the drain hole with a 3/4" PVC pipe plug available from Home Depot or Lowes. This is a good time to inspect the anode for severe deterioration. Minor pitting of the rod is normal, but when big chunks of the rod are missing it may be time to get a new one. They're not that expensive. If the rod is satisfactory, dry it thoroughly, place in a plastic bag and tuck it inside the water heater door so as not to forget it when you de-winterize in the spring.
Why would it be necessary to store the anode rod outside of the unit? Thanx.

It isn't. I either reinstall the old one (if there is still life left) or install a new one after draining and flushing. On less step in the spring. It is just sticking into thin air inside the tank once drained and flushed. No harm to it whatsoever.

That is good to hear as I replaced my anode this year when winterizing. I simply drained/cleaned tank and installed new anode with Teflon tape. Ready to go when the weather finally cooperates!
Thanx for replying.
