If I didn't have to winterize, I'd certainly do as Rich says, once a year to flush out any sediment, and check the anode plug. How many times a year does everyone flush out their water heater at home?? Boy, would you get some sediment out of THAT if you did. But, I doubt many do. Same with the Escape.
I actually drained my home hot water heater and got a lot of strange greenish fine gravel out of it. It is strange what we drink without knowing. The time to do it is mid summer when the plants in the yard need the water. The green gravel? I just place it on my walkways.
