The Teflon tape not only helps with leaks, but it also keeps the plug from seizing. Have had to help a couple of friends with removing a seized plugs from their heaters and it's not fun.

Pipe dope is one alternative.
Either is perfectly fine for the threads on RV WH anode rods, (but not both at the same time).
