There are people here who have had trailers for years and actually remember where they bought their 1 and 1/16 open end for the WH.

That, my friends, is impressive.................

You never know. The OP may not have access to the first 28 places mentioned to buy such a socket.

I'm still LMAO, Although I know those sockets are extremely rare. Took me years to find mine. Found it at an antique flea market. It's AB time in Upstate NY.

Yours is probably a plastic plug in an Atwood heater and not an anode rod, right?

That sounds like maybe some kind of aftermarket thing. Can you post a pic as a factory suburban anode rod has no brass, as shown in this following video provided by Suburban to our forums.

Always get the 6 point. The 12 can slip.

If you need a 2 foot breaker bar to loosen your anode, you're tightening it waay too tight.

The younger ones reading this may not have ever seen such with all the fancy electric windows and such.

And pulling up on the window as you cranked ....

They made good replacement door handles on really old vehicles. Inside handles were always breaking cause they were the only way to pull the door closed on many "oldies".
