As you use your RV water heater, impurities and minerals enter the heater and attack the metal inside. The Anode Rod is made of magnesium and is considered a "sacrificial metal" that's placed inside the water heater to neutralize the impurities and minerals.
These Anode Rods last for 2 or 3 years, give or take. It depends on how much you use the RV and water conditions. You can tell when the Anode Rod is used up when it looks like a metal clothes hanger. I recommend you check your Anode Rod at the end of every season, as you're winterizing your RV. Replace it BEFORE it looks like a clothes hanger.
When you check your Anode Rod, 1.> Turn OFF Water Heater 2.> Turn OFF Water 3.> Let water cool down
4.> Remove Anode with 1-1/16th Socket 5.> Open over-pressure valve to speed up the flow of water
6.> Use a Water Heater Clean-out Wand to clean the sediment out of the bottom of your water heater. It's an inexpensive maintenance item that's often overlooked when changing Anode Rods. 7.> Use Teflon Tape to reinstall the Anode. Don't reuse old tape. Clean off the old and put on new to avoid leaks.
The cost of the Anode, the Wand and the Teflon Tape will be the best $20 you've ever spent and will help save your expensive water heater.
As a result, I now know I missed some steps that cost me quite a bit of time and made some things not work exactly right. For example it was very hard to get screwed in and I was not sure it was in all the way. I now know I should have brushed out and cleaned the threads of the heater tank. Knowing that ahead of time may have helped my problems. I have not been out in the rig and actually used the heater yet but I did refill the tank and it did not leak so hopefully it is in ok and will work.
I think the product itself probably works, but it is too early to tell. Just put the instructions with the product, not send it a week later when you want an Amazon review.
Or leave the original holes and drill your own so you can get a longer thing to get more torque.
Ultimately I bought a socket to fit and now my 1/2 inch breaker bar solves the problem of getting the anode rod out it tight spaces.
Stayed in Elkhart Indiana for a few months where you can smell the water as soon as you enter the RV Park - very hard water. We waited 1 year before replacing the anode and it was corroided very bad. Paid close to $30. for 1 rod back then, but found these much cheaper - FYI - Magnisiun rods corrode quicker that aluminum rods - but the purpose of an anode is to be self sacrificing and to corrode quicker than the water heater components.
Well manufactured - bought 2 and will start checking\replacing them at least once a year.
I did run into a problem with my pressure/temperature valve sticking, so a replacement of this valve took longer to do than the anode.
Shipment was very timely for this product.
Would purchase again.
