X17z water heater anode rod?

My manual says I have an anode rod in my water heater but I don't know where it is, does anyone? All I see us a drain plug and it is not on that.

Your manual may state it but you may have the model water heater that does not have an Anode rod. The Anode rod and the drain plug are one and the same.
Just to be on the safe side find the make and model (usually listed on the placard) and do a quick web search online to see if it originally had one (if your TT is used). Or contact Jayco with your VIN and see what model they put in.

If you have an Atwood water heater, there is no anode rod. They are equipped with an aluminum tank that needs no rod.
