Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant choice water heater Purchased this to replace the original 10 gallon Suburban water that has been in the trailer since 1998. Worked like a champ on a 10 day vacation to lake tahoe producing more hot water than ever needed with a very quick recovery rate, even with back to back showers being taken!

What size anode rod does the 12 gallon take?

Asked by: Amyf
We carry replacement anodes by Suburban as SKU#42180 (Magnesium) and SKU#42978 (Aluminum). We also have an aluminum rod made by Camco as SKU#18414 All of these rods will fit 3, 4, 6, 10, and 12 gallon water heaters by Suburban. Magnesium rods are installed from the factory and is most often used. However, in regions where the anode is eroding faster than normal can switch to aluminum as it will last longer than magnesium.
