Video Transcript for Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod Manufacturer Review

Your RV water heater tank is made of aluminum. But water is corrosive to aluminum. Simply removing the plastic water heater drain plug or used anode rod and replacing it with Camco's RV water heater anode rod can prevent this corrosion and prolong the life of your water heater, preventing an expensive replacement. Camco's RV water heater anode rod is made of magnesium which will corrode itself first so that your water heater tank doesn't. You can see the corrosion that is beginning on this anode rod that we have removed from the water heater. Here is what a new anode rod looks like.

Inspecting and replacing your anode rod on a regular basis will help extend the life of your water heater. .

Bought this anode rod after seeing the crud come out while draining the hot water tank during winterization. Yup, I was told an anode rod was not necessary, however I'm going to find out for myself.

  • Water Heater Anode Rod Compatibility with Atwood G6A-7 Water Heater
    Atwood Water Heaters like your G6A-7 # AT96110 does not use an anode rod because the tank is made of plastic. There is no need for it as the tank will not corrode. If you want to use one, you can use the Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod - Magnesium - 1/2" Diameter x 4-1/2" Long # CAM11553 which will fit your G6A-7.

  • Magnesium Water Heater Anode For Atwood Water Heater
    We don't offer Aqua-Pro so haven't heard anything about them and don't have any experience with how they work or fit. There are magnesium water heater anode rods we know for certain work with Atwood water heaters, which are the following: - Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod - Magnesium - 1/2" Diameter x 4-1/2" Long # CAM11553 or - (10 Gallon Atwood Water Heater only): Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod - Magnesium - 1/2" Diameter x 9-1/2" Long # CAM11593

  • Largest Size Anode Rod for Atwood 6 Gallon Water Heater
    The correct anode rod for an Atwood 6 Gallon Water Heater is the Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod part # CAM11553 which measures 4-1/2" long x 1/2" diameter. There is also a version of this with a built-in drain valve, the part # CAM11533. There are really only two common size anode rods used in the Atwood Water Heaters, 4-1/2" which is for the six gallon tanks and 9-1/2" which is for the ten gallon tanks.

  • Replacement Anode Rod that Can Fit 2019 Heartland North Trailer 28RKDS
    The correct anode rod you'll need will be based on the water heater you have installed in your 2019 Heartland North trail. If you have a Suburban/Mor-Flo you would need the part # CAM11563 or if you have the more popular Atwood water heater you would want the part # CAM11553. We don't have a way to determine what water heater you have. The tool you need is the part # CAM09883.

  • Will Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod Work With Atwood Water Heater
    I went to the warehouse and pulled one of the Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod, part # CAM11553. I took some measurements and have attached a photo of the rod with the measurements noted. The threaded portion of the rod measures just a little over 3/4 inches at .827 inches. You mentioned the plug you pulled from the water heater is 3/4 inch. I called my contact at CAMCO and they told me that this is designed to work with Atwood water heaters so this should work great for you.

  • Anode Rod For Water Heater
    We don't have any way of knowing what anode rod is needed for a water heater in any specific trailer. If you have a Suburban (Mor-Flo) heater use the Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod # CAM11563; for an Atwood water heater use the Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod # CAM11553.

  • Replacement Anode Rod Options For a RV Water Heater
    The correct Anode Rod is going to be determined by what water heater you have. Unfortunately, your motorhome information does not tell me what water heater you have. The rod that you were looking at, Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod # CAM11563 works with Suburban (Mor-Flo) heaters. I have listed out the other Anode Rods that we have available below, along with the water heaters they work with. - Camco RV Water Heater Anode Rod # CAM11593 (Fits 10-gallon Atwood heaters) - Camco RV Water...

  • Will CAMCO RV Water Heater Anode Rod # CAM11563 Fit Atwood Water Heater
    I called my contact at CAMCO and asked about the Water Heater Anode Rod, part # CAM11563. They said you would want to make sure you can use an aluminum anode rod. The # CAM11553 anode rod I recommended in your earlier question is magnesium and has 1/2 inch NPT threads. The description for the # CAM11563 states it has 3/4 inch NPT threads, and is designed for Suburban (Mor-Flo) heaters. This will not fit in your Atwood water heater as the threads are too big.
