Standard = slot? If you can see the screw head you should be able to determine if it's Phillips, Robertson (square), or Torx. All come in various sizes.

The heaters instructions say to open the heater, but i don't know how.

1) For real?
How can we answer the question without model number, brand and type water heater?
Is this a boiler? Or tank-type heater. Is the thing 2 years old or 12 years old.

2) Look on label on side of tank. Include all information shown on label.

3) Attach a photo so we can see the problem more clearly.

4) Call service technician or plumber since this is a gas appliance.

My smart water pilot is on but it is not heating the water tank

GE is Rheem.
Models change frequently.
Copy following link for troubleshoot resources by type of gas control valve.

Newer water heaters require frequent air intake cleaning.
To do this with Rheem requires removal of combustion parts, and then air compressor to blow out screen.
It is probably time to have a plumber give water heater a catch-up on recommended maintained, such as checking gas pressure, bleeding gas line, checking vent draft, clean combustion parts, clean air intake, check if gas control is working correctly.

I want to check the anode rod on a Rheem 82VH40-2.

Alan, you're exactly correct. If memory serves me it's one of the smaller ones and is located closer to the center than the outer regions. So pop off the covers one at a time and poke around under it with a small screwdriver or scribe or some such thing. You should be able to identify it by it's shape. I believe it's a 13/16th's size of a socket to remove it. Personally, I don't usually replace them unless the customer insists. I think they're a waste of money and can eventually cause very bad odors in the hot water.

My hot water will not get hot at all. Model SE40M12AA01 Stop getting hot over night. Breaker to heater was tripped, I reset it and still no hot water.

Your upper thermostat on the hot water tank may be shorting out causing your breaker to trip. Remove the outer panel door on the side of the hot water tank and test for power going to the elements. Also check for water as the tank may be leaking and causing the short
