Which is why Charlie mentioned he used a bushing to make the threads match.

Just saying we have two and may not want to bother with them and will give them away, and get the right one. They don't cost much. Actually I am waiting to be in on one of Leon's swaps!

We did not need a new anode for our 19' even when it was four years old and we only drained the tank for winterizing.

I am getting a spare element, however. That is what I hope we will not need but is the more likely one to have to be replaced --- so we have heard many times. We were lucky!

I think the brass bushing was $6. Then you could use the Atwood ones.

My trailer is 7 years old and has original anode, but we have soft water here.
