Would just like to confirm that our water heater doesn't have a sacrificial anode. We have a Coromal Princeton van and the brochure relates to an Atwood water heater (22.7 litre. No reference in the brochure about one, and have been on line too but can't seem to find it.

Does anyone know if there is other maintenance required if you don't have an anode.

Hi Bunny

The Atwood heater does not need an anode as it is aluminium lined.

Anyway, if you've got an ozzie male driving the tow vehicle, you don't need any additional sacrificial anodes in the rig (Farady's theorum of anodic erosion).
