Water Heater Tool
Is there a tool with a T handle to remove the water heater plug or do you just use a socket? I thought it would be nice/convenient to have a tool with a T handle to quickly remove it without getting out a socket and such. If you know of one, please provide a link. Thanks!

I have never seen one and to be honest have never looked for one just used a socket but the next time I am at camping World I will look .

I use a socket as well. My neighbor claimed that his lug wrench would work for that plug, but I tested mine (a 4-way, not the one that came with the TT) and none of them were the right size.

It would be nice to have a small tool to stick in the bucket with my hoses and fittings that I could use. It's kind of a hassle to break out the socket set every time I want to drain the tank.

I just use pliers. It's a little tedious removing and tightening the plug, but it works for me.

Same here, being careful not to booger up the plug.:)

You looking for something like this? This was my Dads and I would say about 1950 is when he bought this. I have never looked for one but you try Snap on Tools for a start.

Now that takes up even less space.

Water Heater Tool
I use a cheap ratchet w/ extension and a 1 1/16 socket. Keep it in my water box.

How about something like this:


Then you just get the appropriate size socket and you're in business. I wasn't looking all that hard, but I bet you could find a shorter t-handle socket wrench that would work even better. I know I use a 3" (IIRC) extension to get around the burner tube on mine, so this one might be a bit long...
