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.
