We use our own filtered and softened well water in the 5er. Thus, we have never had any serious crud in the HW tank. However, I do occasionally (like every couple of years or so) remove the nylon bushing and insert a tank flusher tube on the end of a garden hose, just to be sure. Have never had much of anything cruddy come out. But just for routine tank drains, like winterizing, I just open the T valve and let it out, then leave the valve cracked open slightly for the winter.

We had an Atwood water heater in our old Jayco, 1993 Eagle 215SD and it only had the plastic plug. Never had a problem with crud. New Jayco must have the Atwood because all there is is the plastic plug.

We have had two Greyhawks with Atwood heaters, neither of them had anodes in them. Have not had any problems.
