Atwood anode rod part number?

Our RV has the six gallon Atwood water heater with the electronic ignition. The model number is GC6AA-10E.

I cannot, for the life of me, find the part number for the replacement anode rod. I can't even find one depicted in the blow up view of the water heater in the Atwood owner's manual.

I need to flush the water tank for the first time and want to have a spare rod available in case I need to replace the current rod.

Anyone have the Atwood part number for this item?

No anode in an Atwood. Its an aluminum tank.

It should probably still be drained & flushed periodically I would guess.

This would be a good time to consider replacing the drain plug with a reducer and small valve. There are several drain valve kits available. Size was a constraint in mine; I didn't have much room.
