Try a 7/8" or 15/16" socket for the Atwood plastic plug and 1 1/16" for the Suburban metal plug.

I drained mine yesterday. It's an Atwood and I used a 15/16 wrench.

Mine uses a 7/8 inch socket, it is a plastic plug. Use pipe dope on threads to reinstall, works better on plastic then teflon tape. It is a 10 gallon tank

I have never used any pipe dope or Teflon tape on my plastic plug in the water heater and not had any issues. Actually, I drilled and tapped a hole in the plastic plug and installed a brass radiator pet cock. Don't have to take the plug out anymore.
