Socket wrench size for water heater?

I have a 2021 Jayco 212QB TT. Does anyone know what size socket wrench I need to empty the water heater in the winterizing process? The TT is stored over an hour from me so it's not easy to go check on it. I was out there today and had a 3/4" but it was too small. Held a tape measure up to it and it seems like 15/16" but I could be wrong. A second socket set I have at home has a 13/16", so I'm wondering if I need to buy a larger set before I head back to the trailer.

Attwood Nylon plug 15/16.

Surburban anode rod 1 1/16

Be sure and use a 6 point socket and possibly universal joint.

Thanks, I have the Attwood so it's the 15/16" that I need. Ordered a set online.

I found this Jayco video about how to care for your water heater: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...ature=emb_logo

Atwood NYLON plug could be 7/8" vs 15/16" ----depending on vendor (2 different sizes with same 1/2" NPT threads)

6" extension helps also
