On our old Sunnybrook, we had an Atwood hot water heater that did not have an anode. Pretty sure it was a stainless steel tank. Just wondering if Keystone is putting Atwood HWH's in any units, or are they all Suburban's?

All Suburban's that I know of at the present time! Anode rods are a good thing no matter what the tank is. Keeps the deposits from forming!

Atwood heaters are alum so they don't need a anode rod. Suburban heaters are porcelain lined and need the rod. I check mine once a year because depending on the water at some places it will really make a mess in there. Rondo is right they are all suburbans in keystones.

The odds are real good that you may have an anode rod on your home water heater also. Have replaced several in S&B's over the years.
