Clarification:

Suburban Anode Rod Hex head requires 1 1/16" socket
Drain hole is 3/4" NPT

Atwood can be 2 different sizes depending on Vendor
A 15/16" socket OR a 7/8" socket
NYLON drain plug...both are 1/2" NPT


Is it time for your medication or mine?

I have always used the 15/16th socket, with a small extension.


X 2. one socket is best.

skinny, wrenches will slip, and there seems to something in the way.

Yeah, I used a Sharpie and wrote "1-1/16" on it so I know which socket to grab when I want to remove on my Suburban anode/drain plug.

I like to use a 6 pointed socket. Too easy to round the corners off the Attwood nylon plug when using 12 points.
