So, I am putting my TT to bed for the winter, and I drained the water heater via the anode rod port. I noticed the rod was pretty worn, so I consulted the manual and got a new anode. The anode literature and the water heater manual said two things I wonder if most folks do: 1. Replace the anode annually. 2. Remove the anode every 30 days and rinse out sediment. Ok, so #1 maybe, the rod is only $13, and if I order on Amazon, I can have a spare in the garage on hand any time. You have to drain the tank each winter anyway, that's not a big issue. #2. REALLY? Pull the anode every 30 days during camping season and rinse out the tank for sediment??? Well, considering in my 40-something years I've NEVER seen an anode replaced in a residential water heater, I'd think that is excessive PM. I think you'd potentially do more damage pulling the rod in and out that many times a year, than you would simply flushing it out each winter during winterization. So, does anyone do these two things per the instructions?
