Yeah, the Suburban is 1 -1/16, and no, it's not left hand thread. Probably just frozen from gunk. It's probably an anode rather than just a plug.
I use a 1/2" breaker bar to remove mine from our Flagstaff PUP.
Lean on it!
Good luck.

If it an Atwood, one of the ends of a 4 lug wrench will usually do the job.

On my Suburban wh, I use a 1 1/8 socket. Lefty loosy

It took a 12'' pipe cheater on the breakover to get it to budge.Got to get an extra set to keep for the winter trips.
I had know idea those little chineese women assembly workers were so strong:hihi:

They're not. They have 24" pipe cheaters.

A few wraps of plumbers tape will keep it from getting too tight and still let it make a connection if it is an anode rod.

Yes its an anode rod and for only 11 mos use it sure looked bad.teflon taped but the junk had it really tight.Just didnt want to turn a simple "drain the tank" into a major catstrophe.My old Winnebago had an actual drain valve which made it easy.
