New Anode-Tape or No Tape

Just better hope that the plastic plug in the Atwood doesn't break when you are trying to remove it to drain water heater. Removing the plug remnants can be a time consuming chore.

Tape for me, inexpensive and seals well. I do use the tip of my muskrat skinning blade on my pocket knife to trace the threads and remove any evidence of old tape. I sterilize with Cedar Ridge bourbon or Templeton Rye.
