It looks like a plug screwed into the top of the water heater (it IS plugging the hole so turn off water and release pressure b4 removing)

It is the 1" or 11/8" hex nut on the top of the water heater some where buy the supply line. As for the anode rod it could be either depending where it was sold. If you are going to change it out call your water provider and ask which would be better for your area and water.

Reliant is made by American
I don't find a 501 manual under gas water heaters at reliant.
The Reliant manuals that are available do not show the anode rod in the drawing.
But they do show an access port on top of tank.
The anode rod is usually under the access port which is a round plastic disc.
On some water heaters, the anode rod is under the steel top and you have to remove the screws holding the top on.
Some water heaters, the anode is connected to hot water outlet.
