We have an Atwood Water Heater and are trying to remove the white nylon plug to drain and winterize. What size socket do we need? Can't seem to find the correct size.

Thank you

Eventually those plastic plugs get stripped on the head and in the threads. I replaced mine with a brass pressure relief valve. There is no need to remove the entire plug to drain, but it is easy to do with an open end box wrench. It may require taking the plastic plug to a plumbing supply store in order to match size and threads, but it's well worth it.
